Recipe By: EatingWell Test Kitchen“With just a few simple steps, you can transform plain chocolate into a divine treat with this chocolate bark recipe. We stir pretzel pieces, raisins and peanuts into this chocolate bark, which is perfect for a gift. ”

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate (or chips)
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts

Directions

  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. (Take care to avoid wrinkles.)
  • Place chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. (Alternatively, place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.)
  • Combine peanuts, raisins and pretzels in a small bowl. Stir half of the mixture into the melted chocolate. Scrape the chocolate onto the foil and spread it into a 9-inch square. Sprinkle with the remaining trail mix, pressing any large bits in. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
  • Transfer the bark and foil to a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut into 1½-inch pieces.
