This decadent Thermomix Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bark is made with just three ingredients - dark chocolate, almonds and sultanas. It's a delicious homemade treat that takes minutes to prepare.
Tempering chocolate in the Thermomix is super easy and the timing depends on the quantity used and whether it's dark, milk or white chocolate. For this recipe, I've used 70% cocoa as the sultanas add some sweetness and darker the chocolate the better it is for your health. I've tried making this recipe with milk chocolate but it doesn't set very well and tends to be a little on the soft side.
Tips on How to Make
Start by roughly breaking the chocolate up and then grate it in the Thermomix for 10 sec/speed 9. Once grated, scrape down the bowl and melt for 3 minutes/50/speed 2.
Pour the melted chocolate onto a large baking sheet lined with baking paper and spread evening with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle over the toppings and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to set. I've used sultanas and almonds for this recipe but you could add any sorts of dried fruits and nuts. Once set, cut into shards and store in the fridge or cool pantry.
This Thermomix Chocolate Bark is great for keeping in the fridge to nibble on and the higher percentage of dark chocolate used the less sugar which equals less guilt!
It would also make a lovely edible Christmas gift wrapped in a clear plastic bag and tied with a ribbon.
Tips to Make it Different
You could substitute the almonds for other nuts or for a nut-free version I have a recipe for Thermomix Super Seed Chocolate Bark which is made with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and flaxseeds.
How to Store
The chocolate bark is best stored in the fridge or cool pantry for a week or two (if it lasts that long!).
