Happy Valentines Day!! Hope you have plans to spend some time with the ones you love today.
Today I made a special treat for my sweetheart. It's a variation on the dark chocolate nut clusters that I make all the time.
They are delicious and easy, and my husband loves them.
Today I decided to make my him a variation of these as a Valentines treat. I saw a recipe for pistachio bark in Whole Living magazine and I adapted mine from that. These are very low sugar since you are using a low sugar chocolate.
Here's what you need:
9 x 13 baking dish - lined with parchment and
sprayed with cooking spray
4 bars of dark chocolate - 85% ( I love Green & Black Organics)
1/2 - 3/4 cup chopped pistachios and almonds
coarse sea salt such as fleur-de-sel ( I used a lavender sea salt)
Melt chocolate slowly in microwave. It's very important to melt and stir. If you cook too long the chocolate will seize up, and once that happens, it's done. Start with about 1 1/2 minutes and then stir and most of the chunks will melt. Microwave a few seconds more if necessary.
Put the pan in the fridge and chill for at least 30 minutes. When chilled, lift sides of parchment and remove chocolate from dish. Break into pieces.
