Chocolate Bark With Walnuts and Dried Cherries

Lindt Chocolate Bark with Walnuts and Dried Cherries

I didn't have dried cherries, they are hard to come by in Honduras so I used dried cranberries. The recipe turned out great! The Lindt Chocolate Bars are like gold here, hard to find and very pricey, so I used regular chocolate instead.

This is just one of the many fruit and nut combinations that make bark one of the most popular chocolate treats ever created.

Recipe by Master Chocolatier Ann Czaja


4 bars (3.5oz/100grams each) Lindt Swiss Classic Milk or Lindt Bittersweet chocolate, chopped
½ cup (40 grams) walnuts, coarsely chopped
½ cup (60g) dried cherries


- Temper the milk chocolate.
- Add the chopped walnuts and dried cherries to the tempered chocolate and stir to combine.
- Spread the mixture on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
- Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes, remove, and let set in a cool place.
- Store in an airtight container in a cool place.

Yield: Approximately 1 lb of bark
