‘Tis the season! The season for love, joy, merriment, and lots of yummy food. This time last year I was working my last few weeks before leaving for maternity leave, and I remember the kitchen at work being so well stocked with cakes and chocolates, with new treats arriving every day!
I’m not planning on over indulging in cakes and chocolates this Christmas, but I do still love something sweet each day with my afternoon cuppa, so I thought I’d try to make something delicious and a bit healthier too. I’m so pleased with how this chocolate bark turned out, it’s rich, creamy and really hits the sweet treat spot!
100g bar dark chocolate. I used Green & Blacks 70% Dark Organic
100g bar vegan white chocolate. I used Organica Organic White Bar, which I bought from an independent health food shop.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
A handful of shelled pistachio nuts
A handful of coconut shavings
This chocolate bark would also make a lovely gift wrapped up in a pretty box, and there are so many possibilities for it. I think some dried cranberries would make a good addition. It’s so simple to make and the marbled chocolate is such a lovely effect, plus the addition of the coconut oil gives it a soft almost truffle like texture.
