Dark Chocolate Bark With Sea Salt and Cherries

If you love the combination of dark chocolate and sea salt as much as I do, look no further than this quick and easy chocolate bark recipe! It literally takes minutes to make and the end result is an absolute show stopper.

Melting Dark Chocolate

To start, you’ll want to melt your favorite dark chocolate over a double boiler. Don’t be intimidated by the technique. It simply means you’re going to simmer a couple inches of water in a pot then place a metal or glass bowl on top to gently melt the chocolate without burning it.

Pouring Melted Chocolate

Once the chocolate is smooth and creamy you simply pour it on top of a large sheet pan lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Next, chop up a bunch of walnuts and dried cherries to sprinkle on top of the melted chocolate. Not a fan or dried cherries? Try dried apricots instead. Prefer almonds or cashews? Go right ahead.
