Cassy Joy Garcia’s Sweet & Salty Chocolate Bark Recipe

Yields: roughly 6 cups of chocolate bark
Active time: 20 minutes
Total time: 1 hour and 20 minutes

2 boxes (about 16 ounces) gluten-free graham crackers
2½ cups dark chocolate
⅓ cup white chocolate
⅓ cup dried, tart cherries
½ teaspoon flaky sea salt

Melt the dark chocolate over a double boiler until smooth. While the chocolate is melting, lay the graham crackers out in an even later on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Once melted, spread the dark chocolate over the graham crackers.

Melt the white chocolate over a double boiler until smooth. Once melted, drizzle the white chocolate over the dark chocolate, then drag a toothpick through the chocolate to create a white chocolate swirl.

Spread the dried cherries over top, and finish with an even sprinkle of the flaky sea salt. Transfer to the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour. Break into pieces and enjoy immediately or package up to gift.
