Recipe: White Chocolate Cherry Pistachio Bark

White Chocolate Cherry Pistachio Bark makes the perfect edible Housewarming gift. This is a very versatile recipe and can be made with different types of chocolates and nuts.

1 Cup chopped pistachios 
1 cup dried cherries 
3 cups of white chocolate chips 

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Line a jelly roll pan or baking sheet with aluminum foil making sure there are no wrinkles. Combine cherries and pistachios in a medium bowl. Place the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Place over but not touching hot (not simmering) water in the lower pan. Lower heat and continue stirring the chocolate until it melts. Remove bowl from heat and stir in half of the pistachio and cherry mixture. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a silicone or rubber spatula, spread to an even thickness of 1/4 inch. Sprinkle the chocolate with the rest of the mixture and use the spatula to gently press them in. Refrigerate, uncovered, until firm, about 30 minutes. 

After the bark hardens, break the chocolate into large, irregular pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
