Christmas Bark Candy

Here's my version of Christmas Bark. I love the combination of Pistachios and Cranberries. The green and red color makes them perfect for the Holiday. Add them to Graham Crackers, Caramel and Dark Chocolate and you have............. Christmas Bark Candy!

This is a Rimmed Quarter Sheet Pan, 9 1/2" X 13"

Here are several options for Graham Crackers.

I like Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips for Baking.

I also use Guittard!

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
1 - 9 1/2" X 13" Rimmed Quarter Sheet Pan lined with Parchment Paper.

Graham Crackers, enough to line the pan!
16 TBS Butter, room temperature
1 C Dark Brown Sugar
1 C Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips or Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate Chips .
1 C Chopped Pistachio Nuts
1 C Dried Cranberries

Line the Sheet Pan with Graham Crackers.

In a Saucepan on medium heat, make the Caramel:
Stir only to combine well as it begins to melt.
Heat until melted.
Boil with out stirring for 3 - 5 minutes. (it's important not to stir it while it boils)
Pour over the Graham Crackers.

In a Microwave Safe Glass Bowl:
Chocolate Chips
Heat, stirring after 30 seconds.
Continue until creamy smooth.
Pour evenly over the Caramel layer.
Spread with an offset spatula.
Sprinkle immediately with Pistachios and Cranberries.
Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Break into pieces to serve.

Peace in the Kitchen!
