Raspberry Dark Chocolate Bark

How does edible gift sound to you? This one is to impress your friends with little to no effort at all. All you need is some chocolate and toppings of your choice. You can go with the classic chocolate and nuts or chocolate with cranberries but you can also do better with some fancier ingredients like freeze dried fruits which I have used here. If you are not sure what that is, it is the same dried fruit used in Kellogg's Special K Cereal. Well, you don't have to pick out the fruits from the cereal box as you can get them online or from Waitrose.

Freeze dried fruits are great as they are dry but still maintain its vibrant colour, and is very crispy with intense flavour of the fruit. So in this recipe, it gives the lively colour and contrast along with some added texture.

Raspberry Dark Chocolate Bark


  • 200g dark chocolate
  • freeze dried raspberries (about 1 cup)


1.  Break the chocolate into pieces and melt in a bain-marie while stirring.
2.  Alternatively, you can also put the broken pieces of chocolate in a bolt and melt in the microwave.
3.  Pour melted chocolate on a baking tray or flat surface lined with parchment paper.
4.  Sprinkle the raspberries on top of the melted chocolate and gently push them down with your palm.
5.  Let the chocolate cool and harden then break them into large pieces.
6.  Wrap them nicely with some tissue paper and place in a box.
7.  Then tie a ribbon around the box and present as a gift.
