Sweet and Salty Bark


Sweet and Salty White Bark | Cooking on the Front Burner


Today's a first for me.  I've never made a bark recipe and now I don't know what I was waiting for!  Not only is this so simple - 4 ingredients - but from start to taking a bite is about 30 minutes.  While I opted to go with autumn type flavors, the sky is the limit on what you can add to make it your own.



I mean really, melting chocolate, stirring and pouring is all it takes to have these sweet and salty treat.  And while I was making it, I was thinking how fun this would be for a quick gift.  I really liked the crunch of the pumpkin seeds with the chewiness of the craisins and raisins.  I've got some ideas for my next batch to make it more for the Christmas holiday.

Sometimes simple is the best way to go and this recipe definitely falls into that category.

  11. What a great recipe combination for bark - I have not ever thought of putting pumpkin seeds in there - I love those things and buy them all the time at Sprouts Farmers Market.
