Have you ever made chocolate bark? If not, it’s definitely a recipe you need to try because it’s INCREDIBLY easy! Plus, it’s a no-bake dessert and a homemade candy that doesn’t require using a candy thermometer. WINNING.
For this recipe, I ever so slightly adapted Ina Garten’s French Chocolate Bark recipe to fit our tastes a teeny tiny bit. My husband isn’t a huge fan of ginger but I didn’t want to omit that completely, it really brings a lot to the table here.
Instead, I drastically reduced the amount and used just a quarter of what Ina used. The flavor is still there just not as pronounced and in your face gingery.
Also I just want to call attention to the dried fruit here –> have you seen how plump and gorgeous it is?!! It’s not your typical grocery store dried fruit, it’s from Nuts.com and let me tell you, I’M A FAN.
You guys, this dried fruit is unlike any I have bought from the store. It’s big and plump and it’s not dried out. I had to stop myself from eating all of the dried apricots before making this French Chocolate Bark. And don’t even get me started on those golden raisins, they’re my dark horse favorite!
The dried cherries are top notch too – THEY’RE ACTUALLY ROUND. I know, that’s a big deal! I’ve only ever had dried cherries that are flat and dry. I’ve been doing it wrong all along. I’m a serious convert here. You guys are going to love this bark if you make it with quality ingredients.
Holiday talk here – last Christmas, I made a few batches of Candy Cane Bark for holiday gifts which is super fun and festive. This version is a bit more sophisticated and the fruit is a nice change from using the typical seasonal flavors.
Both are great for homemade holiday gifting or to make for hostess gifts. You can also just make this for yourself and hide in in the freezer for your own personal stash. I won’t tell, pinky-promise! Enjoy!
