Ingredients
  

  • 10 oz dark chocolate
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 Tbsp almonds rough chopped
  • 2 Tbsp pistachios shells removed and rough chopped
  • 2 Tbsp pepitas rough chopped
  • 2 Tbso dried cherries rough chopped
  • Optional: flaky sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside
  • On a medium to large sized cutting board, rough chop your nuts, seeds, and dried cherries (enough to ensure you do not have any full-sized pieces). Mix all topping pieces together and set aside.
  • In a double boiler over medium-high heat, melt the chocolate with the ground flax. Stir frequently until no large pieces of chocolate remain.*
  • Spread the melted chocolate into a thin, even layer on the lined baked sheet.*
  • Sprinkle your chopped nuts, seeds, and cherries evenly over the melted chocolate.  If you're using the optional flaky sea salt, sprinkle evenly over the nuts and seeds.
  • Place your pan of chocolate bark on an even surface in the fridge to cool for at least 15 minutes, until the chocolate has set.
  • Once the chocolate is set, use your hands to break the chocolate bark into 20-30 pieces.
  • Store your chocolate bark in an air-tight container in the fridge or on your counter for up to one week.

Notes

*In step 3, if you'd prefer to melt your chocolate in the microwave, do so in 20-second increments, stirring in between, until smooth.
*In step 4, your melted chocolate does not have to go all the way to the edges of your pan (I usually have a 1-2” gap between the edge of my chocolate and the edge of my pan depending on what sized cookie sheet I use).
