Tips and Tricks for Perfect Easy Christmas Candy Bark

  • Whole dried cherries can be a little large, try chopping them up into pieces if they appear too large.
  • It’s always easiest to melt chocolate in the microwave, however, if you don’t have a microwave, melt the chocolates in a double boiler. Be very careful not to splash water into the chocolate or it will seize.
  • Its very important to use good quality white chocolate for this recipe because that is the main taste. I recommend the ghiradelli brand chips.
  • Use a large serving spoon to drizzle the dark chocolate or pour it carefully over the top.
  • Press the cherries, pistachios and pretzels into the white chocolate so that they stick down good.
  • Use the more salty brands of pretzels as this adds a lot of flavor to the dish.
