    1 hour 15 (includes setting time)

Equal parts festive and indulgent, the combination of rich dark chocolate, vibrant dried fruits, crunchy nuts, and a hint of coconut creates a delightful texture and flavour explosion. Sharing optional!

  • 300g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mixed dried fruits (cranberries, apricots, cherries)
  • 1/2 cup mixed nuts (almonds, pistachios, walnuts), roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a heatproof bowl, melt the chocolate using a double boiler or microwave in short bursts, stirring frequently.
  3. Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the melted chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet. Use a spatula to spread it out evenly, creating a thin layer.
  5. Sprinkle the mixed dried fruits and nuts evenly over the melted chocolate. Press them slightly into the chocolate to ensure they stick.
  6. Sprinkle desiccated coconut evenly over the chocolate bark.
  7. If you like a sweet-savory combination, add sea salt flakes sparingly.
  8. Place the baking sheet in the fridge and let the chocolate bark set for at least 1 hour or until firm.
  9. Once set, remove the chocolate bark from the fridge.
  10. Use your hands or a knife to break it into rustic pieces.
  11. Arrange the homemade Chocolate Bark on a festive plate and serve! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge, or wrap in some parchment paper and twine, ready to gift.
