This chocolate bark is not only chocolate-y good, it’s healthy too! Pistachios, cranberries and dark chocolate are loaded with antioxidants, not to mention fiber, good fats and vitamin C, so here’s a sweet treat you won’t feel guilty giving out.

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?

  1. We all loved this recipe. The only thing is work fast when you get the chocolate out of microwave or you won’t be able to spread it. I think I almost would spread it first and then press in the cranberry and pistachios:) Perfect though. It will be on every Christmas treat moving forward.

  2. I would like to try this, sounds great! Could you give cup measurements instead of ounces? Thanks!

    This sounds wonderful- we love dark chocolate (even some of the kids). I’m definitely going to try this for my son's birthday party! Thanks Gina!

  8. This recipe is perfect as is, and I do have two suggestions – see if you can find shelled pistachios (maybe there is a better way that I don't know about, but it took forever and my fingers are sore now!) and make a LOT of this, as it goes fast at a party! Many of my friends are health conscious, and this is delicious and not so sinful, so it was quite a hit. Thanks Gina, for your contributions to our healthier lifestyle, and happy holidays everyone!
