In need of a homemade gift that says you care but doesn't take hours to whip up? Look no further.
There's nothing like homemade treats to show someone you really care at Christmas. This chocolate superfood bark is the perfect combination of easy to whip up and impressive to look at - and tastes delicious too!
140g (1 cup) cocoa butter (finely chopped or in buttons)
4 tbsp syrup
40 g (½ cup) cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla
30g dried cranberries
5g desiccated coconut
1. Heat the cocoa butter over a bain-marie until melted.
2. Add in the syrup and whisk until smooth. Remove from the heat before stirring in the cocoa powder, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Whisk until smooth with no lumps.
3. Pour the chocolate into a lined tray and sprinkle over the pistachios, dried cranberries and desiccated coconut. Place flat in the fridge to set for 30-60 minutes.
4. Once firm, roughly break up the chocolate bark and wrap in string as gifts.
