Dark Chocolate Vanilla Almond Fruit Bark

bark

An intensely wonderful nibble!  Danielle made this for a class at Brooskide Gardens January 22 2014 and again the next day at US Botanic Garden.

9 ounces dark chocolate  – 70% (get a high-quality such as Lindt or Sharffen Berger)
½ t vanilla
1/8 C dried cranberries, chopped
1/8 C dried apricots, chopped
1/8 C dried candied ginger, chopped
¼ C almonds, roughly chopped or left whole

Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or a bowl set over simmering pan of water. Add the vanilla, stir thoroughly. Place a sheet of wax/parchment paper on a small baking tray, making an oblong or round shape about 8 inches. Pour melted chocolate on to the wax paper. Sprinkle over the dried fruit and nuts. Let harden completely (put in the freezer for 10 minutes to make it go faster). Break into pieces for serving.  Makes 6-10 pieces.
