White Chocolate Apricot Bark Candy
My love affair with chocolate has come to a bitter end...at least for a while! I decided to use up the white chocolate. After using most of the 1 lb. bag on some chocolate covered strawberries, I created more bark that would satisfy my father's sweet tooth. His favorite is milk or white chocolate while my mother dives into the dark. When it comes to chocolate I definitely take after my mom.
So, in all fairness I made bark candy with roasted almonds and diced dried apricots. It was a nice change but I'll go with the extra dark chocolate every time. I used the same method. Melt the chocolate , add the nuts and fruit, and pour onto a waxed paper lined pan. Spread to desired thickness and refrigerate until firm. Take it out, break it up and eat it or give it away!
After a brief respite from MOST sweets (not all), I'll be eager to try more bark and biscotti variations. Any requests?
