Dark Chocolate Bark with Dried Fruit, Almonds + Seasalt

photo 1  This is so yummy, mind blowingly heavenly and delicious! It’s definitely 100X better than eating a bar of chocolate. Since being on Perricone I’ve been eating a lot of dark chocolate, but I’ve been trying to vary it a bit to stop me getting bored so I’m so pleased I’ve found another recipe and I really really love this one! This is from Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook “It’s All Good“, the dark chocolate is full of antioxidants and it’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans and it’s wheat free, gluten free and dairy free. You do have to be a little bit careful when eating this- the salt makes it super moorish so be sure to step away from the chocolate when you think you’ve had enough!

Serves 4 as a snack

  • 70 oz of good quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons dried fruit
  • 1 teaspoon Maldon sea salt

Feel free to change the toppings and add whichever nuts, dried fruit and spices you like.

Line a tray with parchment paper.

Bring a small pot of water to the boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Put the chocolate in a glass or stainless steel bowl and set it over the pot of water. Stir the chocolate until it’s completely melted and immediately pour it onto the parchment paper. Evenly sprinkle your chosen toppings and salt over the chocolate. Put the pan in the freezer until the chocolate sets- about 20 minutes.

Break the chocolate into pieces, you can either store this in an airtight container at room temperature or if it’s hot store in the fridge.
