Today, I am bringing you one of the all time classics, Fruit + Nut Chocolate Bark.
I have been sharing my raw chocolate recipes since starting Becomingness, with the first recipe being my adaptation of I Quit Sugar's Raspberry Ripple - Dairy Free Raspberry Ripe. Since that recipe, I have experimented with many different flavour combinations, including my Macadamia Chocolate Bark and Coconut Rough.
So, when I decided to put together this Fruit + Nut Chocolate Bark, I thought why not share three different fruit + nut combinations.
First, I have the classic Almond and Sultanas which is what the Cadbury's Fruit + Nut is made of. For my version, I used blanched raw almonds and organic sultanas.
The second option that I have included, is made with raw pistachios and organic dried cranberries. This is my personal favourite of the three combinations.
Finally, the third option is made with raw macadamias (my favourite nut of all time) and organic dried goji berries.
Which one is your favourite? I would love for you to let me know in the comments below or over on my Facebook page.
