Not the woof woof kind.... the good kind.

The white chocolate oh-so-yummy-you-think-you-died-and-went-to-heaven kind.

The foundation for this recipe came from Barefoot Contessa, but I pretty much use whatever is in my pantry

Here's the recipe for White Chocolate Bark:

1/3 cup nuts (walnuts, pecans) (I used dried sunflower seeds today)
16 oz white chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup diced apricots
1/4 cup coconut

Preheat oven to 350. Bake nuts for about 8 minutes, then set aside to cool. Once cool, chop into smallish pieces.

Place 3/4 of the chocolate into a glass bowl and microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted. Once melted, immediately add the rest, stirring until melted.

Pour chocolate onto parchment paper (on baking dish) and spread into a rectangular form, about 8x10".

Sprinkle with nuts, dried fruit, coconut, whatever. I gently pat it into the melted chocolate to keep it secure.

Set aside for 2 hours, or put into refrigerator for about 20 minutes to harden.

Break into pieces. Keep in fridge or at room temp. Great dessert. Or anytime treat!

Enjoy! Nancy
