Sharing with you, an easy, simple, and guilt free way to enjoy a little sweet treat after dinner! Sounds interesting! Isn't it? Dark chocolate with sweetness of dried cranberries, crunch of pistachio nuts, and little hint of salt, is my favorite way to serve some not-so-sweet and guilt-free sweet after meal (especially after dinner)!

I love dark chocolate, first for taste and second for the anti-oxidants! plus, no added sugar, cranberries, pistachios and just hint of salt! What not to like? Also, I make these bark, a little thin than usual verity to keep less calories per serving (just thick enough to hold the good stuff and that is it!)

Now, why am I sharing chocolate and cranberries treat at this time of year? Well.. well.... two reasons!

First, do you really need a season or a reason to devour some chocolate with cranberries?? I don't think so :))

Second, you know, we have a tradition in my home, when we share a good news, we always bring some sweets to eat. So, I thought, I will bring you some sweet chocolate bark and share the news of my recipe making to Go Gluten Free Magazine's Spring 2015 Edition!!

I'm excited to see my recipe. Here is a peak for you!

Chocolate Bark
Smart Swap: You can also use almonds or pepita seeds instead of pistachios!


  • Step for Recipe - Cranberry and Pistachio Dark Chocolate Bark 1. If using chocolate log, chop it into small pieces (very important or chocolate will not melt evenly. Chips always melt great.) You can use double-boiler, I often melt chocolate in microwave in microwave safe container. First 20 seconds, then stir once and then 10 seconds again, 2 times with stirring in-between, or until chocolate has melted.
    Step for Recipe - Cranberry and Pistachio Dark Chocolate Bark 2. Spray a sheet tray with cooking spray, then line a parchment paper hanging from two sides. Additional Notes: Oil spray holds the parchment paper on sheet tray while you spread chocolate.
  • Step for Recipe - Cranberry and Pistachio Dark Chocolate Bark 3. Spread melted chocolate on the parchment paper and smooth the top with a off-set spatula or a small silicon spoon.
    Step for Recipe - Cranberry and Pistachio Dark Chocolate Bark 4. Spread chopped dried cranberries, rough chopped pistachios on the top evenly, then sprinkle some salt. Leave in fridge to set for 30 minutes.
  • Step for Recipe - Cranberry and Pistachio Dark Chocolate Bark 5. After 30 minutes, chocolate bark will be fully set.
    Step for Recipe - Cranberry and Pistachio Dark Chocolate Bark 6. Break the bark into small pieces using knife. Refrigerate in an air-tight container until ready to use!
Savita's Notes:

Recipe doubles easily. Make some extra and refrigerate for a little indulgence after meal!!

Always check chocolate label to ensure it is vegan. In vegan chocolate chips/block, cocoa butter is used instead of regular dairy butter.
