  • 12 ounces dark chocolate chips or baking squares
  • 1/3 cup pistachios shelled
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips for drizzling
  • 2 tablespoons candied orange peel
  • flaky salt for topping optional


  • Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave in thirty-second increments until fully smooth. While the chocolate is melting, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pour the melted chocolate onto the baking sheet and spread into an approximately 8x10-inch rectangle, or to the desired thinness.
  • Sprinkle on pistachios and dried cranberries. Let set approximately 2 hours or until the surface of the chocolate is dry and no longer shiny.
  • Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the bark. Garnish with the candied orange peel and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt, if desired.
  • Let the bark sit another 2 hours or overnight. When fully solid, break into pieces or cut into sections with a knife. Store up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge.
