Canada Day Cranberry Almond Bark

Happy Canada day!

Hope you are having an awesome day!

Just a quick “recipe” for you today, which really was a result of  a failure. I had intended on sharing some cute ( in my head ) cake pops, but let’s just say they didn’t turn out ( a.k.a fell apart as I was dipping them). Not one to waste perfectly good melted chocolate, I threw in some cranberries and almonds, topped it off with sprinkles and made a bark.

Canada Day Cranberry Almond Bark.

  • 1/2 cup white melting chocolate (I used Merckens from the Bulk Barn)
  • 1 cup red melting chocolate
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped natural almonds
  • sprinkles ( optional)
  1. Line a 9×9 pan with wax paper. Over a pot with gently simmering water, melt the white chocolate in a heat proof glass or metal bowl, making sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. 
  2. When the chocolate is melted, stir in the cranberries, then pour down the middle of the prepared pan.
  3. In another bowl, melt the red chocolate over the gently simmering water. When it has melted, stir in the chopped almonds.
  4. Pour half of the chocolate along one side of the pan beside the white chocolate. Pour the other half along the other. Swirl the white chocolate into the red with a knife if desired. Top with sprinkles if desired ( I used some cute Maple leaf quins)
  5. Gently drop the pan on the counter a couple times to smooth out the chocolate then pop in the fridge or freezer to set. Once it has set, whack it on the counter or tap it with a rolling pin to break it up.

Don’t forget to check out some fireworks!
