Chocolate Bark with Strawberries and Pistachios

dsc_0137dsc_0140Happy New Year folks! Let’s start the New Year with something sweet and delicious!  Which also looks very pretty!  Yeah I made this chocolate bark for our New Year’s Eve party and everyone both adults and kids loved it.!

And the best part is – its a breeze to make! All you have to do is melt some chocolate and spread it thin on a tray. Slice up some strawberries and some pistachios and place them on top. Melt some more dark chocolate and drizzle on top.  Refrigerate for a couple hours to set and then cut it up into pieces or barks 🙂 Now isn’t this just what you need? Best part is since the bark is very thin, you are technically not going to be eating too many calories (unless of course you gobble up all of it 🙂 ) It’s a great party pleaser too and oh so easy to make 🙂

dsc_0138Wishing all of you folks a wonderful new year that is filled with everything your heart desires. May all your wishes and dreams come true and may you be blessed with good health and happiness.  May peace prevail everywhere.

Isaiah 40:31

“but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Chocolate Bark with Strawberries and Pistachios

  • Servings: Makes about 12-16 small pieces
  • Time: 15 minutes preparation time and 60 minutes refrigeration time
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

3 Milk Chocolate bars , 4.4 ounce bars (about 360 grams)

1 Dark Chocolate bar – 70% cocoa, about 2 ounces (180 grams)

4-6 strawberries, sliced thinly

1/2 cup pistachios, shelled and chopped

Method:

Take a small baking tray (12 inches by 9 inches) and line it with parchment paper. Keep aside.

In a microwave safe bowl, place the milk chocolate bars and  melt the chocolate by heating bowl between 1-2 minutes in 30 second intervals. Meaning heat first for 30 seconds, get it out, stir with a spatula and again put it back in microwave and heat for another 30 seconds. Do this 3-4 times or until the chocolate is almost melted and then just stir with a spatula to form a smooth creamy liquid.

Immediately pour this melted chocolate onto the tray and spread slowly using the back of a spoon to spread the chocolate over entire length of tray or atleast 3/4 th the length of the tray.

Place the strawberry slices and the pistachios randomly over the chocolate.

Next melt the dark chocolate similarly in the microwave and drizzle it slowly over the tray.

Place tray in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

When you get it out, the bark will come off easily from the parchment. Cut into thin slices/barks and enjoy! Refrigerate until serving time!
