White Chocolate Cherry Pistachio Bark Recipe 4

The only tricky part to this recipe is melting the white chocolate. I highly recommend getting a double boiler. This is a saucepan that sits within another pan. Water boils on the bottom pan. White chocolate goes in the top pan and melts smoothly and evenly. You can melt white chocolate in the microwave, but it can be a bit tricky. It’s something I had many failures on in our early baking years. We’ve recently gotten better at melting white chocolate in the microwave, but I prefer the double boiler method since it is easy.

White Chocolate Cherry Pistachio Bark Recipe 5

This easy white chocolate bark recipe takes two cups of white chocolate. You’ll melt 1 1/2 cups of chocolate, then add the remaining 1/2 a cup  and stir to melt it. This just helps the chocolate not to get too runny and helps it cool faster. I didn’t want my chocolate to spread thinly over the pan, so I let it sit for 5 minutes before I poured it onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet. It was the perfect temperature. Thick enough to not run all over the pan, but thin enough to spread into an 8×8 square.

White Chocolate Cherry Pistachio Bark Recipe 7

You’re going to press shelled pistachio nuts and green candied cherries into the white chocolate while it is still melty. I purchased these green candied cherries at Meijer at Christmastime, but if you’re not sure where to buy them, you can easily order them online here. Their color makes them fun for Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day and springtime, too!

Pop the pan into the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes or until the chocolate is set, then slice or break the candy bark into chunks.
