Dessert Recipes

By: Chris Freytag, CPT

The perfect combination of salty and sweet I love bringing this rich pistachio and cranberry chocolate bark to parties. The recipe is easy, delicious, and looks like you spent an afternoon in your apron. A festive healthy treat especially around the holidays! Perfect for gift giving or to bring as a hostess gift.

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 16 serving(s)


  • 16 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • For Topping
  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachios, chopped or whole
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries


  1. For best flavor, toast pistachios on a sheet pan for 4-5 minutes in a 350 degrees oven before preparing. Toast just until they smell aromatic.
  2. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  3. Place chopped chocolate in a metal or tempered glass mixing bowl and place over a pot of simmering water to create a double boiler.
  4. Stir the chocolate constantly, until entirely melted.
  5. Pour melted chocolate onto the parchment paper-lined sheet pan and spread until about 1/3 inch thick.
  6. Sprinkle toasted pistachios and sweetened cranberries over the entire surface of the melted chocolate. Use a rubber spatula to press all down into the chocolate.
  7. Let cool completely, until firm. Break apart and serve.
