This delicious chocolate bark with both white chocolate and dark, dried cranberry chunks, almonds and infused with fresh orange zest will be a great addition to your holiday spread or perfect for a little neighbor treat. You’re friends and family will love this holiday sweet treat!
Around the holidays these ingredients may already be in your kitchen.
So there are three layers to this scrumptious bark… check out the full recipe and instructions below. Just take it a layer at a time, it’s so simple.
Bottom layer: dark chocolate, almonds and dried cranberries
Melt dark chocolate. Spread melted chocolate on silicone baking mat or waxed paper. Sprinkle with almonds and dried cranberries. Chill.
Middle layer: white chocolate infused with fresh orange zest
Melt half of the white chocolate. Stir in orange zest (this will cause the chocolate to “seize” or become harder. Make sure not to add to much orange zest or the chocolate will be to hard to roll out. Roll out until very thin. I rolled mine between 2 pieces of waxed paper which made transferring and clean up super easy. Place rolled orange layer onto hardened dark chocolate layer. Press down. Chill.
Top layer: white chocolate, almonds and dried cranberries
Melt remainder of white chocolate. Pour over hardened (chilled) middle layer. Smooth with spatula. Sprinkle almonds and dried cranberries. Chill.
That’s it. After it has fully hardened you can break it into whatever size you desire. ENJOY!
Cranberry orange chocolate bark with almonds
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
- 3 cups white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- zest of one orange about 1 1/2-2 tsp.
Melt dark chocolate. Pour onto 11x17 silicone baking mat or waxed paper. Using a spatula spread thin. Sprinkle half of the almonds and dried cranberries. Chill.
Melt about half the white chocolate. Add orange zest. As it is mixed it will "seize" or make the chocolate harden. If to much zest is added it will become to hard to roll. Between two pieces of waxed paper roll out the orange layer to as big as your dark chocolate layer. Place orange layer on top of dark chocolate layer and press down. Chill.
Melt remaining white chocolate. Spread and smooth over orange layer. Sprinkle remaining almonds and dried cranberries and press down gently. Chill.
Break into your desired size and enjoy!
