SO EASY, Almond-Cranberry Chocolate Bark. Only 3 Ingredients!!

I use almonds and dried cranberries a lot for a couple reasons.  First, they are fairly inexpensive (I get my from Sam’s Club and double up when they go on sale!), and second, they work great with both sweet and savory dishes.  Anything from salads, to bread pudding. This incredibly simple Chocolate Bark is no exception. It takes minutes, but will be a big hit with any crowd!  Feel free to sub any nut or dried fruit to suit your tastes.


In a microwave safe bowl, put as much chocolate as you want (I used the equivalent of a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips).  Microwave for 30-45 second increments and stir well each time until all chips are melted and it looks glossy like this.


Next add the nuts and dried fruit (I added approximately 1 heaping cup of each).  Stir until everything is coated.



Spread mixture out on a cookie sheet that has been lined with a piece of wax or parchment paper.  Place in frig (or freezer, to speed up process) until set.  Anywhere from 15-30 minutes.

Break up into desired sizes and enjoy!!  This treat doesn’t last long in our house seeing as I justify it with being “somewhat” healthy…I mean it does have almonds and fruit in it! 😉
