Cranberry And Pistachio Bark

It can also be called Christmas Bark as I added in some festive spices! I love this recipe as it’s super easy to make and also makes a lovely homemade present for someone!


You can mess around with lots of toppings: macadamia, ginger pieces, crushed candy whatever suits your mood that day!


  • 200g 75%-85 dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/3 cup pistachios crushed
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberry
  • 1 tbsp dark choc chips
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch of Himalayan sea salt


  1. Combine all 200g of the chocolate into a heat proof bowl and melt gently over a pot of simmering water, as it starts to melt down; stir in the coconut oil and maple syrup.
  2. When the chocolate is melted take of the heat, mix in the spices and about 2 tbsp of your toppings into the mix (nuts and fruit only).
  3. Line a square or rectangle baking tray with baking paper.
  4. Pour the melted chocolate over the paper and using a spatula, spread the mixture out evenly (not too thin).
  5. Sprinkle the nuts, fruit and chic chips over the chocolate. (I had some left over, so just use enough to cover)
  6. Place in the fridge until it sets. Break the bark into large pieces, they don’t have to be even-that’s part of the fun!
