Chocolate + Coffee Bark with Pistachios + Sea Salt

Okay holiday bark is kind of like my new favorite thing to make. I seriously had no idea how easy this was and I love how fancy it turns out and how impressively delicious it is to eat.

It’s kind of like taking a plain old chocolate candy bar, melting it down, adding in your own specialized little toppings and then saying, “look at how awesome I am for making this perfect creation”.

Why have I never done this before? I mean it’s so easy, I almost feel like I’m cheating at something. This bark is pretty special to me since the components are 4 of my most favorite things on earth. Chocolate + sea salt equals, umm like one of the best combinations ever. Pistachios + like anything, rocks the house. Add in a sprinkle of your favorite ground coffee and voila, you’re rockin’ and rollin’.

You’re welcome.

Chocolate + Coffee Bark with Pistachios + Sea Salt

Ingredients:

  • 14 ounces of 56% bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup shelled + crushed pistachios
  • 1 teaspoon coarse coffee grounds
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Melt two-thirds of the chocolate in double boiler or small pot. To avoid burning the chocolate, keep the heat low and stir constantly.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Once the chocolate is done melting, pour it onto the parchment paper and smooth it out evenly with your spatula. Sprinkle on the pistachios and place the tray in the refrigerator for an hour.

Once the bark has chilled and taken form completely, heat the remaining third of the chocolate and drizzle it on top of the first layer. Finish it with a sprinkle of sea salt and the ground coffee beans.  Chill in the refrigerator for at least another hour. Break the bark up into pieces and devour!

    Ok, so I’m trying to figure out how I make this and NOT eat it all. Seriously. This has everything I love in it and it would not last long in my house.
