Fruit and Nut Bark Recipe

Fruit and Nut Bark - Roseyhome - baking, christmas, gifts, last minute gifts, toddler friendly baking

Rosalie and I have been busying ourselves in the kitchen making gifts for our family and friends. I chose easy, toddler friendly bakes that she could help with. This is our Festive fruit and nut bark recipe.

This recipe is perfect if you need to make something last minute.


Fruit and Nut Bark - Roseyhome - baking, christmas, gifts, last minute gifts, toddler friendly baking

 

I N G R E D I E N T S

200g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids)
100g white chocolate
50g mixed nuts (we used pecans, cashews, pistachios and macadamia nuts), chopped into chunky pieces
2 tbsp freeze-dried raspberries
50g dried fruit (we used sultanas, cranberries and chopped apricots)

 

I N S T R U C T I O N S

1. Melt the dark and white chocolate in separate bowls suspended over pans of gently simmering water, stirring every now and then. Meanwhile, line a large baking tray with baking parchment. Leave the chocolate to cool for 10 mins.

2. Pour the dark chocolate onto the tray and spread it into a rectangle, roughly 20 x 25cm. Drizzle over the white chocolate and create a swirled pattern by dragging a cocktail stick back and forth across the chocolate. Scatter over the nuts, fruit and sea salt, then leave somewhere cool to set.

3. Break into shards or leave whole, wrap in cellophane or pack into a box, then tie up with ribbon. Will keep for 2 weeks.
