Easy and delicious, this is a good one to make for edible gifts at Christmas (or Christmas in July). It's from my new e-book, A Sweet Little Book– wrap in a cellophane bag and tie with a green, red or gold bow. Get the kids to help stir in the nuts and cranberries and to spread it out on the tray.
Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water (don't let bowl touch water). Stir until smooth, then stir through most of the nuts and cranberries.
Spread onto baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining nuts and cranberries.
Leave to set and break into pieces. Keeps for up to a week in an airtight container. Serves 6 – 8.
Tip: You can also use milk or dark chocolate to make the bark. Experiment with other nuts such as toasted macadamias and almonds 0r pistachios; and fruits such as dried cherries and goji berries.
