Fruit-and-Nut Chocolate Bark

Makes: 22 servings Yield: 2-3/4 pounds (about 22 pieces)
Prep 20 mins Chill 1 hr Microwave 2 mins to 3 mins
Fruit-and-Nut Chocolate Bark
  • 2  cups  almonds and/or hazelnuts (filberts)*, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 2/3  cup  golden raisins
  • 2/3  cup  snipped dried apricots
  • 2/3  cup  dried cranberries
  • 1/4  cup  diced candied orange peel
  • 12  ounces  chocolate-flavor candy coating, cut up
  • 7  ounces  milk chocolate, cut up

1. Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. In a bowl, combine nuts, raisins, apricots, cranberries, and orange peel. Reserve 3/4 cup of fruit mixture for topping. Set both portions aside.

2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine candy coating and chocolate. Microwave, uncovered, on 100-percent power (high) for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking time. Stir until smooth. Stir in the larger portion of fruit mixture; mix well. Pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Spread about 3/8 inch thick. Sprinkle topping over mixture in pan, pressing pieces slightly with the back of a spoon.

3. Chill candy about 1 hour or until firm. Peel away the waxed paper. Carefully break candy into pieces. Layer pieces between waxed paper in tin; cover.
