20(ish)--- Dark Chocolate Blueberry Pistachio Bark

Pile on the antioxidants with this sweet (but not overly sweet) treat! It's so easy to make and so PRETTY. Spread the love-- make extra to share with friends and Valentines!

Dark Chocolate Blueberry Pistachio Bark
Makes 16 one ounce servings

12 oz dark chocolate chips (I like Ghirardelli's 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips)
2/3 cup dried blueberries

1/2 cup shelled pistachio nuts, coarsely crushed

In a double boiler over hot water (not quite boiling) melt chocolate chips until smooth. Add 1/3 cup dried blueberries and 1/4 cup pistachios.

Pour mixture onto a foil-lined cookie sheet and spread to 1/8" thickness. Sprinkle remaining blueberries and pistachios on top. Place cookie sheet into refrigerator for 45 minutes, until bark hardens all the way through. Break bark into uneven pieces. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator-- the pure chocolate will melt on contact with your fingertips!

  1. I just made this the other night and it is wonderful! It's great for that chocolate fix I seem to crave at night, but with smoky, salty pistachios and sweet blueberries. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
