Need a fast and easy to make treat to take to a last-minute party that is both healthy and yummy? This superfood pistachio bark is always a favorite to bring, send in to your favorite teachers, or to just have around the house! Goji berries, also known as “wolfberry fruit”, have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries and are said to improve immunity, vitality, longevity, energy, stamina, and even your mood!  In addition, the dark chocolate and gogi berries pack a powerful punch of healthy antioxidants, while both the dark chocolate and the pink Himalayan sea salt are full of essential minerals! Not to mention, this pistachio bark pairs really well with a full bodied red wine! 😉

Ingredients
  1. 12 oz dark chocolate (72% cacao or higher)
  2. 1 cup shelled pistachios (salted, unsalted or a combination)

  2. In a double boiler, slowly melt the chocolate over low heat.
  3. When chocolate is completely melted, stir in nuts.
  4. Spread the mix out onto the baking sheet as thin as the pistachios will allow, for easy breaking!

  6. Refrigerate or freeze for one hour until set.
  7. Cut or break into bite sized chunks.
Notes
  1. Feel free to get creative and use these substitutes if you prefer: coconut flakes, chia seeds, almonds, dried berries, or any other favorite thing you can imagine! As always, we try to use fair trade chocolate and organic ingredients when possible!
  2. Double the yum, double your recipe!
