Dark Chocolate Bark with Pistachios and Cranberries

What is your dream?

I have lots. I had to do an assignment that asked what our dream was, who we would work with, what our hours would look like, etc. I answered several: food photographer, cookbook writer, nutrition and diet book writer, cooking show host… I mean, the list goes on.

Let’s just pretend for a minute that I’m a food photographer. Did I pass? Could this be in a book? If I had more props (and a better camera and maybe a photography class?) I’m sure it could be better.

Okay, NOW let’s pretend I’m going to write a book.

How cool would that be? The Skinny Muffin Diet? The Eat the Rainbow Diet?  Would you buy my book? Come to my signing? Watch me when I was on the Today Show and the Ellen Show?

I knew you would. Thanks. As a reward for being a diligent follower, I made some bark for you.

Small Batch Dark Chocolate Bark with Pistachios and Cranberries

1/2 12oz bag dark chocolate
1/4 c pistachios
1/4 c dried cranberries.

1. Melt chocolate on the stove by stirring over medium heat until chocolate melts.
2. Pour chocolate onto parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Spread thin using a spatula. Sprinkle nuts and cranberries on chocolate, press down slightly to secure the toppings in the chocolate, then refrigerate until set, about 20 minutes.
3. After the chocolate has set, break or cut apart into pieces.

    Umm…yeah I want some of that. Why does melting chocolate into bark form make me feel like it would be appropriate to eat 10 pieces? And of COURSE I would come to your book signing, duh!!!

    1. No. 1 dream is a pay-what-you-can bakery/cafe
    2. Your photography has gotten much better.
    3. I’d buy your book. I’d watch you on Ellen if you challenged her to a rap battle.
    4. I made pretty much the same thing over the weekend. Pistachios, craisins, white chocolate, dark chocolate.
    5. You’re my favorite.
