Easy Cranberry, Macadamia and Pistachio Caramilk Chocolate Bark
Do you always have leftover chocolates, dried fruit and nuts after Christmas? Once the Christmas fruit cakes, puddings and cookies have been baked, there are often leftover ingredients waiting to be used up. This Cranberry, Macadamia and Pistachio Caramilk Chocolate Bark will use up those ingredients.
This recipe is based on the most popular chocolate bark recipe on the internet by Bake Play Smile. But we’ve given this bark an Aussie twist by using Australian grown macadamia nuts.
Tips for making your Chocolate Bark
You can use any chocolate to make your bark base. I used milk chocolate with a Caramilk swirl for a creamy bark, but it also gave it a delightful swirl pattern beneath the fruit and nuts.
Use up whatever leftover fruits, nuts or seeds you have sitting in the pantry. I had leftover macadamias, pistachios and cranberries for this bark recipe.
Once made, allow the chocolate bark to set for an hour before retrieving from the fridge to serve.
