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. Could I substitute Lily’s dark baking bar for the Hershey’s? I have them in my pantry but not the Hershey’s.

  2. We love chcolate bark and how can you go wrong with dark chocolate and dried cranberries. These yummy treats did not last long at our house.

  3. Hi..making now…I'm finding the many is not enough to cove an entire jelly roll pan…what might I b doing wrong?! Yummy!

  4. These turned out wonderful! Everybody loves the bark and I am so glad I have this healthier alternative to fudge.

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. So good! I made this last night with almonds and cranberries to bring to work. Thanks Gina!
