This past weekend, I had a wonderful time with Kelli celebrating her birthday! She gathered her friends together for some DIY candles, champagne, and tasty food... my kind of night!
I knew I wanted to make macarons for the occasion, but since those finicky little treats are never a guarantee, I wanted to have an easy back-up dessert to bring just in case.
When I was visiting my parents in Minnesota, my mom made this fresh cranberry bark, and it was absolutely delicious! Fresh cranberries are quite sour, so when paired with the creamy white chocolate bark, it makes for a match made in heaven.
Not to mention this dessert takes about 5 minutes to make - can't beat that for easy!
All you need are fresh cranberries and white chocolate (or almond bark).
Line a baking sheet with wax paper and spread out a layer of cranberries.
Melt the chocolate (or almond bark) according to the instructions on the package, and pour the melted chocolate over the berries.
Pop in the refrigerator to harden. Once it hardens, simply break the bark into small pieces.
Not only does this treat taste great, but if you ask me, the red berries are quite festive!
The cranberries and white chocolate couldn't be more of a perfect combination!
Have extra cranberries?!
Freeze them, and pop them into your drink as mini ice cubes - champagne, please! :)
