Category: Truffles, bonbons and candies
Serving: 60 truffles, depending on size
 

INGREDIENTS

Blizzard Bark:
6 cups WAINA 35% WHITE CHOCOLATE
1 cup macadamia nuts (toasted)
¼ cup candied ginger
¾ cup coconut chips (toasted)

 
Merry Berry Bark
1 cup dried cherry/berry mix

INSTRUCTIONS

Blizzard Bark:

  • Toast the macadamia nuts and coconut separate. 
  • When cool, rough chop the nuts, leaving some large halves. Chop the candied ginger into small cubes. 
  • Keep all ingredients separate and set aside. 
  • Temper the white chocolate. Once the white chocolate is in temper, spread evenly on a parchment lined half tray. 
  • Immediately sprinkle each of the toppings on the bark, evenly distributing the items across the bark. Leave to set in a cool place (60-65°F) for at least 4 hours. 
  • Break into pieces and serve.

 *Chop chocolate before measuring.

Chef’s note: IVOIRE can be substituted for the WAINA in this recipe. If kept in an airtight container, bark with keep for 1 month.
 
Merry Berry Bark:

  • Measure all the ingredients- keep separate and set aside.

  • Once the dark chocolate is in temper, spread evenly on a parchment lined half tray.
  • Immediately sprinkle each of the toppings on the bark, evenly distributing the items across the bark.

Chef’s note: CARAIBE or GUANAJA can be substituted for the ILLANKA in this recipe.  If kept in an airtight container, bark with keep for 1 month.  If made in a humid climate, omit the freeze dried fruit as it will absorb moisture quickly.
