In Response to New Chocolate Bars to make:
I love the super 90% chocolate, the family likes the 60%. So, I use the pound bricks of chocolate of 20-40% and one or two bars of the 90-99% chocolate and melt them together. I have small chocolate trays, but you can use parchment paper- With my dried fruits and nuts in hand- I chop and sliver pieces thin. Upon my paper I place a thin coating of chocolate, then sprinkle or drop the cut pieces of fruit and nuts- then a second layer of chocolate. Cool until it hardens. Break into chunks or cut into squares. The broken slivers can be added to a new batch or sampled. The hardest is the first few times you think the layers are too thin- but the thinner the better... Our favorites include- mango slivers with almond bites, pineapple and peanuts, and cranberries and hazelnuts.

Where do you find the pound blocks of chocolate?
Thanks for some great ideas for bark combinations. Love the cranberry and hazelnut idea.
