"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!"

"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!"
"Very quick and easy. Took longer to set up but the taste is great! Salty/sweet . . oh, and chocolaty. Thanks for the keeper! Made for PRMR."
"This is an excellent recipe and great for gifts. When our daughter was in the catering business she made a smiliar recipe but using only pure white chocolate - very good. Sometimes she substituted apricots for the cranberries. A lot of options here. Thanks for submitting."
"Awesome - this blend of flavors is out of this world! It's not too sweet and a perfect match with the saltiness of the cashews. Thanks for sharing!"
"Everybody loved this at a party tonight. It was very easy to make. The swirling didn't seem to be working for me, so I had a mostly dark choc. layer with white chocolate layered on top."
"Wow! If you like chocolate this is for you. I was surprised with how easy it was to prepare. What a great gift giving idea. I made it for DH to take to work and it was a big hit. I love the cranberries in this. Thanks Syd for posting."
"UMMMMMMM-AZING! My daughters and I just snitched pieces of this from the fridge & found it's not quite hard enough yet to break all of it up yet, but mmmmm was it good! I didn't quite spread the first layer thin enough, so it's pretty thick. It looked so thin, until I went to add the white chocolate...oops! I would add more cranberries and nuts to the topping. This would also be good with toasted slivered almonds, which I almost ended up doing, until I found my cashews! I'm filing this recipe away for Christmas gifts. We like to give away baskets of homemade cookies and holiday treats. I think this will replace one of my fudge recipes this year! I did use the white confectionary coating for the melted white chips, because I had some on hand, and it tends to melt better without burning than the chips. I also added a little oil to the chocolate chips to give the final product a little gloss, like the confectionary coating would have. I also used about 1/2 cup more semi-sweet chocolate chips than called for. Made for please review my recipe game."
"I'm so glad I finally know how to make these delicious chocolate barks. Love everything in it, the fruity cranberry and the salted cashews balancing the sweetness of the chocolates. The toppings seem to have covered the white marbled effect I made which was fine as DH tasted it and said "this is good!" wanting to bring everything with him! Thanks for sharing this!"
"You can't really go wrong with these ingredients! Loved the nuts and cranberries with the chocolate. The semi sweet balanced out the very sweet white chocolate. Yum! Reviewed during ZWT 4."
"I just love chocolate bark and this one was great. I love the cashew crunch and saltiness and the tartness of the dried cranberries. I didn't have quite enough white chocolate and mine overcooked in the microwave too. But it was all good in the end. Thanks Mike!"
"Oh my gosh, this candy is sinful!! Anyone who loves chocolate must make this recipe! I did great melting the semi-sweet chocolate but was trying to do to many things and overcooked the white chocolate. It resembled frosting but I used it anyway as I didnt have another bag. Ran out of heavy duty aluminum foil so I used waxed paper. The white chocolate seemed to lighten the semi-sweet chocolate flavor, love the saltiness and crunch from the cashews, and the cranberries are perfect to bring all the flavors together with a bit of tartness. A knife worked a lot better to spread the thin layer of chocolate. Fun to make and takes no time at all, just remember to keep an eye on the chocolates when melting. Thank you Syd for posting this great recipe."
