Fruit and Nut Dark Chocolate Bark


  • 16 oz dark chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (around 60% cacao content)
  • 1 tablespoon Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of chopped mixed nuts (suggestions: pistachios and almonds)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flakes
  • 1/3 cup dried fruit (suggestions, cranberries, apricots, goji berries or candied ginger)
  • 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt


  1. Cover a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, melt chocolate and sugar in a microwave-safe bowl for one minute. Stir and then microwave in 15-second increments, stirring after each one, until chocolate is smooth and there are no lumps.
  3. Spread chocolate evenly over center area of baking sheet using a rubber spatula. Chocolate should be about 1/4-inch thick.
  4. Sprinkle nuts, coconut flakes, and dried fruit evenly over chocolate. Lastly, sprinkle flaked sea salt on top.
  5. Allow chocolate to cool at room temperature, until completely hardened, about 2 hours. Once chocolate is hard, use your hands to break it into pieces.
  6. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to a week.
