Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

  • Melt chocolate chips in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl for 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until melted, 1 to 3 minutes.

  • Melt butterscotch chips in a second microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl for 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until melted, 1 to 3 minutes.

  • Microwave sliced almonds on a microwave-safe plate on high for 1 minute at a time, stirring after each interval, until light brown and toasted, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Add 1/2 of the toasted almonds, 1/2 of the cranberries, and 1/2 of the apricots to the melted chocolate; stir until blended. Add remaining almonds, cranberries, and apricots to the melted butterscotch; stir until blended. Drop alternating spoonfuls of each mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and drag a knife through the mixtures several times to create a marbled effect.

  • Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour. Break into 24 pieces.

Cook's Notes:

Any dried fruit can take the place of the cranberries and apricots, just make sure it's in small enough pieces.

White chocolate chips can be used in place of butterscotch chips, if preferred.

As written this did not work. The butterscotch chips do not melt in the microwave. The consistency was like a thick peanut butter and start to scorch early on. I had to scramble and do some quick thinking. I added margarine (lots of it) and finally got it to the consistency you'd want in a bark but then as soon as I added the almonds and dried fruits it went right back to way too thick to swirl the chocolate mixture in. My only option at that point was to spread it all on the baking sheet and flatten it with a rubber spatula as flat as I could. Even with my attempt to save it it was way too thick and unspreadable. The taste is good but as written this does not work. Read More
