25 Days of Holiday Goodies Day 19: Cranberry-Pistachio Bark

25 Days of Christmas Goodies Button

 

Josh mentioned another Christmas goodie the month after we were married that was a favorite of his:  bark.  Unlike frogs, I had actually heard of bark.  No–this is not the recipe.  The one he was most familiar with had coconut and nuts in it.

In the first years of our marriage, I found this recipe in one of those Taste of Home cookies and candy Christmas magazines.  The photos looked so beautiful and Christmas-y that I had to try it.  That year–and for several years afterward–these treats were the first to disappear from the treat tray–and the first to be lamented when gone.

The other day, Muffin and I made the batch for this year.  Surprisingly, even though Muffin loves chocolate, pistachios, and dried cranberries, this was not Muffin Approved.

Pistachio-Cranberry Bark

(Source:  Taste of Home)

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted

1 cup white baking chips, melted

1 cup coarsely chopped pistachios, toasted, divided

3/4 cup dried cranberries, divided

Stir 3/4 cup pistachios and 1/2 of the cranberries into the semisweet chocolate.  Thinly spread on foil-lined (baking spray-sprayed) baking sheet.  Drizzle with white chocolate.

Cut through with a knife to swirl.  Sprinkle with remaining nuts and berries.  Chill until firm.  Cut or break into pieces.  Stir in airtight container in the fridge.
