Two Ingredient Dark Chocolate Cashew Bark

Cashew 5

This dark chocolate cashew bark is so pretty and scrumptious, and it has just two ingredients!

Cashew 1

This is how it looks before you cut it up into pieces. This would make a beautiful gift in a clear bag with pretty ribbon packaged whole.

This is the time of year for food gift giving, most people love to get food gifts, and homemade is even better because it has love in it!

Toasting the raw cashews brings out their flavor more and turns them lightly golden brown.

I used Organic Gluten Free Guittard dark chocolate baking wafers and Raw Cashew to make this bark. That’s it……..simple and good. I like to get my nuts from nuts.com They have a large selection of gluten free nuts and dried fruit, and the nuts are always very fresh.

Two Ingredients Dark Chocolate Cashew Bark

Ingredients:

1  Cup of Guittard Dark Chocolate Baking Wafers

1/3 Cup of Raw Whole Cashews

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lay the cashews on a small baking sheet in a single layer, and toast them in the preheated oven for 7 to 10 minutes until they are just turning a golden brown. Remove them from the oven and set aside.

Lay out another small cookie sheet, and line it with parchment paper.

In a small saucepan, bring an inch and a half of water to a full boil. Then turn it down to a simmer. Put 1 Cup of dark chocolate baking wafers into a small stainless steel mixing bowl that will fit inside the saucepan but not touch the water. Place the stainless bowl with the chocolate into the pan with the simmering water (you have just created a double boiler), and stir slowly and constantly until the chocolate is completely melted and creamy.

Scrape the melted chocolate out of the bowl right onto parchment lined cookie sheet and pick up the pan to swirl the chocolate until it is about a 1/4″ thick layer. Now, take the toasted cashews, and sprinkle them evenly over the melted chocolate.

You can set the pan aside at room temperature to harden for 24 hours, or for quicker results, refrigerate it for an hour and a half.

When your chocolate has set, take a large cutting knife, and cut it into pieces.

Store the cashew bark in a sealed container at room temperature, or keep it in the refrigerator. You can also store it whole, and gift it whole, or broken into pieces.
