I also make a similar dark chocolate nut clusters with sea salt where I use 5 types of nuts and present them in mini cupcake holders, perfect if you ran out of dried fruit. Or for a little more pack I’ll make Granola bars with oats, raisins and chocolate for a family dessert or a mid day snack.

With the holidays around the corner, if baking is not your thing, making chocolate bark just couldn’t be easier. With only three ingredients, the only appliance you need is a microwave to create this.

You can use any combination of nuts and dried fruit to make bark, but I just love the festive colors in this combination, and it tastes great too. What’s your favorite bark?
