    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    This is a Taste Of Home recipe that originally called for 1 1/4 cups dried cherries. Since I find the white chocolate to be so sweet I subbed cranberries to give it a little tartness. I buy the pistachios already roasted to save time and if I can find peeled ones that's even better. I think next time I make this I'm going to double the cranberries and pistachios - I'll come back and post my thoughts on doubling these ingredients after a taste test. This makes a very pretty and festive looking bark for the holidays. Also, I find Merckens has a much better taste so if possible use Merckens which is sometimes packaged under the brand name of CK Products.

      I did use dried cherries in this first try at this recipe & was very happy with the results, probably because those cherries I get at our local bulk food store are definitely not sweet cherries, which we really liked in combination with the sweet white chocolate! Nevertheless, I look forward to making this with cranberries during the end-of-year holidays! Definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
