This cranberry pistachio chocolate bark is so easy to make it would take you just about 5 minutes. It is a very simple dessert to make and extremely versatile, as you can add any toppings of your liking. I chose to use pistachios and cranberries given the holiday season but anything goes.

I also wanted to make the bark prettier so I use two different types of chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. You can make just with dark chocolate if you like or if you are vegan just use vegan chocolate. I just wanted to get a bit more creative and have a marble effect in the bark to make it prettier so that is why I used the white chocolate.

This cranberry pistachio chocolate bark is perfect for the holidays ahead. It is great for gift giving or to have as a dessert. Of course a little goes a long way so don’t over due. Someone on one of my social media channels mentioned that what sort of exercise regime would I need after eating something like this. Well a very simple answer will suffice, no exercise regime need it what so ever.  Just don’t eat the entire batch in one sitting and simply moderate your servings. If you can’t do that then I guess this isn’t the dessert for you!

Anyhow, indulging is part of life and with the holidays I am sure I will be indulging some. I work pretty hard during the year eating right and exercising, As a matter of fact I have most of my life so when ever I feel like I want to eat something a bit more naughty, I will. Balance is key…

I hope you like it. You can see the video recipe to really appreciate how easy this is to make.

  2. We always have white chocolate almond bark, but let me tell you, your combination here sounds divine!! I know my husband gets a bag of pistachios each year so I have to save some to make this!

  3. I’m just like you Miryam! I feel like I can eat a treat here or there because I eat pretty healthy! It pays off to eat well :)

  11. This is the perfect Christmas candy! I love all that swirled chocolate…yum!

  12. Hi Miriam, do you grease the foil before putting the melted chocolate? And how do you store it? should it go in the fridge or stay on the counter (sealed container of course :) )?

    • No I don’t grease it. I store it in the fridge but if it is not too hot outside you can in your kitchen counter. I keep my house at 71 degrees in the winter so I just rather keep in the fridge. Thanks for stopping by!

  13. I doubled it to have enough to give to two Christmas dinner hosts. It turned out beautifully! It really is as easy as it looks!

  14. I just made this except I used the cranberries infused with blueberry and pomegranate juice plus sprinkled sea salt on it and oh my goodness, it’s so good! Tomorrow is thanksgiving and I’m 38 weeks pregnant so I needed an easy desert to make and this was it!

  15. That looks very tasty definitely gonna try this

  16. I made this as directed and it is delicious and dinner to make! Next time I’m making s double batch. A little does go a long way. I think it’s best eaten at room temperature but I store it in the fridge. Thank you Miryam for sharing this!
