  • Cooking Method: Melting & Chilling
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Chill Time: 1 hour
  • Cuisine Type: Dessert, Confectionery


  • 12 oz (340g) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (50g) dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup (50g) chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup (30g) shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup (40g) white chocolate, melted
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Cooking Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Not wax paper! Parchment only—trust me.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the dark chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring between each. (Don’t let it burn or you’ll be sad.)
  3. Spread the melted dark chocolate evenly on the parchment-lined baking sheet using a spatula. Aim for a thickness of about 1/4 inch (6mm).
  4. Sprinkle the dried cranberries, chopped almonds, and shredded coconut generously across the chocolate.
  5. Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the top in a zigzag pattern. Channel your inner Jackson Pollock.
  6. Lightly sprinkle sea salt over everything. Yes, just a pinch. You’re not salting the driveway.
  7. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour or until completely set. No peeking before then!
  8. Once set, break the bark into irregular pieces. Go rough; it’s more artisanal that way!


  • Alternative Ingredients: Try pistachios, dried cherries, pumpkin seeds, or even goji berries for a twist.
  • Garnishing Options: Add a drizzle of caramel sauce or sprinkle some edible gold flakes if you’re feeling extra fancy.
  • Cooking Tips: Use a double boiler if you fear the microwave, and temper the chocolate for an extra shiny finish.
  • Storage Hack: Store your bark in an airtight container in the fridge to keep it fresh and snappy.
