Strawberry & Pistachio Cluster Bark

If you’ve made any New Year’s resolutions to trim down and eat healthier, I’ve got you covered, because I’m jumping ahead to some holiday gift giving for Valentine’s Day with candy cluster recipe.

I know, it’s early and I may be slightly a head of schedule, but that’s one of things I’m determined to improve upon this year: procrastination, so let’s do this Valentine’s Day gift-giving treat.

This recipe is highly adaptable, so mix and match any dried fruits and nuts to your preference. To dress things up, get creative and finish with different chocolates, sprinkles or disco dust. And the best thing about this, aside from being a gift just about anyone would love to receive—it’s a no-bake, no-fuss and four-ingredient recipe—yay! And an even bigger yay to this being a ten-minute recipe.

To make the recipe as seen here:

(1) Replace the almond ratio with pistachios (2) Replace the dried cherries with dried strawberries (sourced from here) (3) Add a 1/2 cup of mini marshmallows (4) Replace the milk chocolate with white chocolate (5) Optional: drizzle top with milk chocolate.

To form as a bark rather than clusters:

(1) Pour mixture on to wax paper lined bake sheet, then using an offset spatula spread to an even finish. Refrigerate to set then cut to desired size.
