Pack a cherry-spiked piece in your child's bag (or your own) for a creamy-crunchy treat.
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1/3 cup dried cherries, chopped
1 ounce small salted pretzel sticks, broken into 1/4-inch pieces (about 2/3 cup)
1 (12-ounce) package premium white chocolate chips
How to Make It
Place almonds in a skillet over high heat. Cook 2 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Combine almonds, cherries, and pretzels in a bowl. Set aside half of mixture.
Place chocolate in a 1-quart glass measure. Microwave at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring every 30 seconds. Add chocolate to bowl with pretzel mixture; stir well. Spread chocolate mixture evenly into a 12 x 7-inch rectangle on a jelly-roll pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle remaining pretzel mixture evenly over chocolate, pressing lightly to adhere. Freeze 10 minutes. Break into 16 pieces.
I made this last night since I had everything left over from various holiday barks I made. I eyeballed the ingredients - probably added more cherries and almonds than it called for. The result is amazing! I'm addicted and can't stop snagging pieces of it today. Yum!! Thanks for the simple, yet delicious recipe, CL!
