Tips from our bakers

For a tasty peppermint version of this candy, omit the cranberries and nuts. Add 3 to 5 drops peppermint oil to the dark chocolate (optional); reduce the white chocolate to 2 cups, and add 2 tablespoons peppermint crunch or crushed candy canes to the melted white chocolate. Sprinkle an additional 2 tablespoons peppermint crunch or crushed candy canes on top.

For a cookies and cream version of this candy, omit the cranberries and nuts. Add 1 cup chocolate wafer cookie pieces (5 1/8 ounces, from five 2 3/4" cookies) to the melted white chocolate. Sprinkle an additional cup of cookie pieces on top of the bark before allowing it to harden.
