    Sydney Mike's Note:

    Looking for a candy combo of chocolate, cranberry & cashew I caem across this recipe at candy.about.com, & it suited my needs perfectly! However, if your situation includes the bark sitting around a long time in warm temperatures, it's suggested that 'real' chopped chocolate be used & tempered so that it won't melt in the heat!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Line a 13"x9" rimmed baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, place 1/4 cup semi-sweet chips, 1/4 cup white chips, 1/3 cup cranberries & 1/3 cup chopped cashews, & set aside.
    3. 3
      In a medium microwave-safe bowl, place remaining 1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chips, & microwave until chips are melted, stirring after every 45 seconds to prevent overheating.
    4. 4
      When semi-sweet chips are melted, stir in remaining 1/3 cup cranberries & remaining 1/3 cup chopped cashews.
    5. 5
      Pour this chocolate mixture onto prepared baking sheet, using a spatula or knife to spread the chunky chocolate mixture into as thin a layer as possible, trying to cover most of the surface of the baking sheet.
    6. 6
      In another microwave-safe bowl, place remaining 1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips, & microwave until chips are melted, stirring after 45 seconds to prevent overheating.
    7. 7
      Once white chocolate has melted, drop by spoonfuls evenly over chocolate on baking sheet. Use tip of knife to swirl white chocolate through semi-sweet chocolate, being CAREFUL NOT TO SWIRL TOO MUCH & MUDDY THE COLORS. When finished, there should be distinct swirls of brown & white throughout the candy.
    8. 8
      While chocolate is still wet, sprinkle reserved chips, fruit & nuts evenly over the top, pressing gently to affix them in melted chocolate.
    9. 9
      Place baking sheet in refrigerator to set chocolate, about 30 minutes.
    10. 10
      Once firm, peel candy away from foil, & break candy into small pieces.
    11. 11
      Store bark in airtight container for up to a week in the refrigerator.

      I'm in Chocolate Heaven -- loved the cashews and of course, the cranberries in this this decadent bark. The only change I made was to use the love of my life - dark chocolate vs. milk chocolate. I can't wait to make this for the Christmas holidays -- this is a great recipe to make with my grandkids. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, November, 2011.

      Yummy and decadent! I also had a problem with my white chocolate melting/mixing, but it didn't make any difference in the taste at all! :-) I only made 1/2 the recipe, thanks heavens, as I'd have to eat it all if I'd made it all! Thanks for sharing, Sydney Mike!
