How to prepare Cranberry Pistachio White Chocolate Bark?

Step 1. Cut two tablespoons of pistachios that will be used to sprinkle on top of the barks and set them aside. Cut two tablespoons of cranberries that will be sprinkled on top of the barks, too. 

Step 2. Melt the white chocolate over a double boiler. Pour water in the pan, then put another dish with chopped white chocolate in it on top and  heat at low temperature, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted.  Make sure that the dish with chocolate inside doesn’t touch the water and the steam does not come in contact with white chocolate. Stay close to your stove all the time and stir from time to time!  There is a quick way to melt the chocolate – by using 30 – second intervals on 20% power in the microwave stirring after each. Repeat the same procedure until all the chocolate is melted. Using a double – boiler is a safer  way to melt chocolate.

Step 3.  Mix white chocolate, cranberries and pistachios! When the chocolate is melted, add whole pistachios and cranberries and stir.

Step  4. Spread the mixture evenly on the prepared baking sheet, lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with chopped pistachios and cranberries. Put it in the freezer for 15 minutes, or until it sets and then cut into pieces and serve. It can’t be quicker and easier than this and the taste is amazing!
