How to Make Fruit and Nut White Chocolate Bark
Making Fruit and Nut White Chocolate Bark is very easy using these simple tools.
Start by crushing your pistachios and hazelnuts by placing them in a freezer bag on a flat hard surface and using a rolling pin, roll over them as you would with a dough a couple of times. You'd want them to be coarsely crushed, no need for fine crushing here. Next, melt your white chocolate by placing white chocolate coins into a microwave-safe bowl. If using a bloack of white chocolate, you will need to chop this into small, equal-sized pieces. Place the bowl in the microwave and heat in 20 second increments, stirring well using a fork between each heating round. This should not take longer than 40-60 seconds. Make sure to stir well every 20 seconds or so as the chocolate will continue melting as you're stirring and overheating will ruin the chocolate. Once the chocolate has melted, place 1 level tablespoon of white chocolate into each muffin mold, just covering the bottom surface of the mold. Top with crushed pistachio, hazelnuts, and dried fruit and pop into the fridge for around 30 minutes. That's it! You have the perfect fruit and nut white chocolate treat all year round. This is another great use for silicone molds because these fruit and nut white chocolate barks can be easily popped out once solidified, leaving you with a perfectly round, bite-sized portion!
Of course, you can use any type of fruit or nut you desire. I just love how pistachios, raisins, and cherries blend in their beautiful colours, and I'm also a huge hazelnut lover!
