Chocolate Cranberry Barks are easy to make, addictive, crunchy and melt in mouth treat with flurry of sea salt. These can be prepared in less than 25 minutes. What I love about preparing chocolate barks is that toppings are always unlimited. From fruit to nuts to candy, add in any combination of your choice and it will only taste great. It does not stop here – you can also experiment with the chocolate you are going to use to prepare these barks.
These barks can be prepared during holidays or any special occasion, and it will surely be a show stealer. Since Valentine’s day is around the corner, I decided to prepare this delicious treat. All you need is some premium chocolate. Today, I have used white chocolate as it will not only tastes good but also makes it look pretty when topped with cranberries. A perfect gift for your loved ones.
I have combined cranberry with little mix of raisins and roasted almonds. Do not forget to roast any nuts that you are going to add as roasting them enhances its flavor and gives a nice crunch to the end product. While roasting nuts for any recipe I always add an extra handful than what the recipe calls for as I have the habit of munching on them when they roast.
