  • 12 ounces dark or semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 2 cups mixed nuts I used pecans, pistachios, almonds and cashews


  • Find a heatproof bowl that fits atop a 2-1/2 quart saucepan. (You want to be able to simmer a few inches of water without the bottom of the bowl touching the water.) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pour a couple of inches of water in the saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Put chocolate in the heatproof bowl and place atop saucepan. Stir occasionally until chocolate has melted.
  • Pour melted chocolate on prepared baking sheet and spread to even thickness. Sprinkle with nuts.
  • Refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes. Break bark into 18 pieces.
