Dried Cherry and Orange Peel Bark

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2010


  • 1 pound bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried cherries
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • Basic Bark or Bark Bars


  1. Coat a 9-by-12 1/2-inch rimmed baking sheet or 6 small loaf pans (2 1/2-by-5-inches) with cooking spray, and line with parchment, leaving an overhang on long sides. Pour melted chocolate into baking sheet or divide among pans (3 tablespoons each), and spread in an even layer. Sprinkle toppings over chocolate. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour. Peel off parchment, and break bark into pieces.

Cook's Note

Bark can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

    This looks really good, and a great alternative to the very sweet chocolates you often see. But with the orange zest, does anyone know how long it would last? If it's only 3 days, it would be hard to give these out in advance!
