Ingredients

  • 5.3 ounces Bittersweet Chocolate Bar (1 Devine Bar) Devine 70% bittersweet chocolate is used in this recipe
  • 1/4 cup chopped assorted raw unsalted nuts Note 1
  • 1/4 cup assorted dried fruit, chopped Note 2
  • 3 Tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes Note 3
  • dash Himalayan salt Note 4

Instructions

  • Place parchment or wax paper on a baking sheet, set aside.
  • Place water in the bottom of a double boiler. (Note 5) Put the top pot on the double boiler. Set the heat on the stove to medium-high.
  • One the pot is warm, reduce heat to medium.
  • Add some of the chocolate to the pot. Let melt.
  • Place the remaining chocolate in the pot to melt.
  • Stir till smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate into the prepared baking pan.

  • Serve and enjoy.

Notes

Note 1: We use raw unsalted nuts for a "better for you option".
Note 2: Cranberries, cherries, blueberries, apricots are all great choices.
Note 3: You can use sweetened coconut if you prefer the bark a bit sweeter.
Note 4: Himalayan salt is my choice. Kosher salt can be used. The salt adds a great pop to the bark. 
Note 5: Don't fill pot too much. The water should not be hitting the top pot of the double boiler.
Note 6: It can take longer for chocolate to set in warmer months. If refrigerating, be aware that condensation can form on the bark.
