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)
- 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.
- When the chocolate is melted, stir in the cranberries, then pour down the middle of the prepared pan.
- In another bowl, melt the red chocolate over the gently simmering water. When it has melted, stir in the chopped almonds.
- 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)
- 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.
