White Chocolate Cranberry & Pistachio Bark
White chocolate cranberry & pistachio bark is a lovely festive treat that is so easy to make that involves no cooking. Melted white chocolate is studded with dried cranberries and nutty pistachios then allowed to harden, then it’s ready for eating.
I’m feeling very festive with the striking red and green colors of this white chocolate cranberry & pistachio bark. An easy sweet treat of white chocolate studded with dried cranberries and pistachios.
I love the contrast of the colors of the pistachios and cranberries against the creamy white chocolate. It is such an easy and fast way to create a sweet after dinner treat that satisfies those sweet cravings, but you don’t feel so guilty because it has dried fruit and nuts.
Another festive treat that has the same ingredients and also makes a lovely gift is White Chocolate Pistachio Cranberry Fudge. Pictured below.
The richness of white chocolate is cut with the tartness of the dried cranberries and the roasted pistachios give a great nutty crunch.
I buy the pistachios from Trader Joe’s that are already roasted, unsalted. If you cannot find pistachios already roasted, spread the nuts on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes at 350°F/177°C.
This bark would also be a lovely homemade gift for your kids teachers or give some to the mail man to give him and energy boost on his daily rounds. Just wrap a couple of pieces up in clear bags and tie with festive string or ribbon.

Janette, for Xmas when I make this bark (and have done so since 2008), I added crushed Candy canes. to my mixture… not only is it festive, but for the holidays it is truly tasty!!
I love this idea, thank you.
I only could find the salted pistachios, will they still work?
Hi Julie, yes they will work. Just remove some of the salt by spreading them on a towel and roll them around a little.
I use Costco ‘s salted pistachios all the time (without removing any salt) and it turns out great! Maybe the bit of salt works well with all the sweetness?.
This is good to know, thank you for sharing.
This is so pretty and I’m sure it tastes amazing too!
