In Response to Re: Great recipe for "Bark":
I've posted this bark recipe before but some of our newer members may not have seen it.  I try to make it for gifts. I can't keep my hands off of it! CRANBERRY NUT CHOCOLATE BARK 1 cup dried cranberries ( I think you could use dried cherries but the bark would be sweeter.  I like the tart cranberries.) 3/4 cup toasted diced pecans 2 2/3 cups chopped semisweet or bitter sweet chocolate, melted 2 2/3 cups chopped shite chocolate, melted Toss cranberries and pecans together.  Set aside. Melt the dark chocolate and spread it into an 8" x 12" oval on parchment paper.  (I draw an oval on the underside of the parchment paper so I can see the line through the paper.) Allow the chocolate to set, but not harden completely. Melt the white chocolate and mix it with about 3/4 cup of cranberries and pecans.  Spread this over the dark chocolate.  Sprinkle the remainder of the nuts and fruit on top, pressing it down into the chocolate gently. Allow candy to cool until hardened and break it into chunks.

Thanks for the recipe Bakery1.   I'm going to have to try that one since I have a ton of Craisins(my local store had them at $1.69 and then did a b1g1 deal too....sweet deal lol).

This evening I made some chocolate mint bark and a batch of Bakery1's.   I did not have a bag of cranberries so I used a bag of mixed fruit.  It's GORGEOUS!

Thanks Nancy and H.M.  I can almost picture the bark with dried fruits and how colorful that would be.  Another great idea from Nancy.

Bark made with the dark chocolate chips and Smokehouse Almonds.
Fantastic.  the sweet/salty and the smoke flavor with the dark chocolate is great.
I have made this as a bark but also as nut clusters by stirring the Smokehouse almonds into the chocolate then dropping by the spoon full onto parchment paper.

I was trying to clean up my kitchen and decided I needed a bit more bark ..... I used milk chocolate morsels, a big cup of Kraft Caramel Bits and a few white chips.   When it was all spread out on wax paper - I sprinkled it with lots of pecans.
