Apricot and Pistachio Dark Chocolate Bark

This dessert is simple yet elegant. The flavor pairings of apricot, pistachio, dark chocolate, and sea salt are truly so complimentary.

You can use a double-boiler method to melt your chocolate, but I find that just putting the chocolate in a glass bowl and microwaving at 30 minute intervals is much easier. Just don’t over heat it or your chocolate will seize up! I take mine out of the microwave while there are still visible pieces- the chocolate will keep melting and become smooth after it comes out.

Feel free to use whatever chocolate you prefer. I used 85% dark for this. The added toppings really cut through the bitterness.

I love that people can select their own size piece of chocolate and snack on it at their own pace. This will definitely be our new go-to quick and delicious dessert!
