Chocolate Marshmallow Bark

by Wednesday, December 07, 2016
The basis of this recipe is actually a Weight Watchers recipe I got a loooong time ago. I riffed on it and made my own version, which I make just about every single Christmas season because it's so damn good, and even more damn simple!

Chocolate Marshmallow Bark
Yields 12 servings (or more if you cut 'em smaller like we do)

Ingredients

2-10 oz. packages Ghiradelli 60% Cocao bittersweet chocolate ( or chocolate chips of choice)
1 Tbsp butter
1-10oz package mini marshmallows (6 cups)
1-5oz. package Craisins dried cranberries (~3/4 cup)
Sprinkling of shredded coconut if desired
You can also add nuts, substitute other dried fruit, crispy cereal or oats, crumbled cookies, etc as you like. This is very versatile!

Instructions

Line a 9- X 9-inch pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
Place chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe measuring bowl and microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring every 15-20 seconds. Stir in the marshmallows & dried cranberries.
Scrape the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan using a silicon spatula; smooth into a somewhat even layer.
Sprinkle with a light dusting of shredded coconut if desired. 
Cover and refrigerate until the chocolate sets, at least 1 hour and then keep refrigerated until ready to eat.
Cut into 12 pieces and serve.
