1/1 Photo of Orange Walnut Bark
At the end of the holiday baking Mom and I typically make bark out of the leftover chocolate, nuts and other items used to decorate cookies. abark is a really nice addition to the trays and is simple to prepare if you have experience with chocolate. This combination came together so nicely I thought it was worth posting. Sorry, I don't have exact measures as it was a spontaneous moment. Besides the lumpiness of bark is a matter of personal preference. Though I am a bigger fan of dark chocolate, this really works best with milk chocolate.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 lb milk chocolate chips
- 1/3-1/2 cup walnut pieces, toasted
- 1/3-1/2 cup candied orange peel
- 1Before starting prepare a cookie sheet or silpat sheet with a very light coating of vegetable oil cooking spray.
- 2Set up a double boiler with hot water just barely at a simmer. Place the top half of the boiler on top and add two thirds of the chocolate chips.
- 3Stirring regularly, melt the chips for a minute or two until the chocolate is smooth. Don't let the chocolate get too hot or it will need to be tempered again.
- 4Once the chocolate is smooth and glossy, add the remaining third of the chips and stir for 20 seconds.
- 5Add in the walnut pieces and orange peel. Stir just until mixed.
- 6Pour out the chocolate onto the prepared sheet and allow it to fully cool. The thickness is a matter of personal preference.
- 7Break the bark into pieces and enjoy.
