Recipe: Christmas Bark Candy

This is one of the easiest and most-impressive looking confections you can make during the holidays.  Melt the contents of a bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave (careful, it burns easily) or in a sauce pan (or over a double boiler, if you have one).   Spread the melted confection on waxed paper.  Sprinkle with a cup of chopped, unsalted pistachios and a cup of dried cranberries.  It looks festive with the red and green ingredients.

For marble bark (with or without the add-in’s), melt semi-sweet chocolate chips and pour next to the white chocolate on the wax paper.  Swirl the two melted chocolates together.  Use a toothpick for some fine effects.
Refrigerate until hard, then break it into pieces.

(This is a nice-add on if you are making cookie packages.)

Here’s another variation (but my favorite is still the pistachio/cranberry version!):
