Ingredients

  • 1 Cup orange juice
  • 16 Ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1 Cup candied orange peel
  • 1 Cup salted pistachios, roughly chopped

Directions

Place orange juice in small saucepan over medium heat; cook and reduce to ¼ cup and cool. 

Melt chocolate over double-boiler. 

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour melted chocolate onto the parchment paper to ¼-inch thickness; swirl in the cooled orange juice reduction with a spatula, creating thin channels in the chocolate. 

Sprinkle orange peel and pistachios over chocolate; press into chocolate. 

Cool bark completely until chocolate hardens; break into pieces.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
