Serves: 20; Portion size, 1 ounce; Prep: 20 minutes; Cook time: 1 hour.

Ingredients

1 pound

white chocolate chips

1/2 cup

dried cranberries

1/2 cup

pistachios

1/4 teaspoon

sea salt

Preparation

  1. Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 15 seconds; remove bowl from microwave and stir. Repeat process until most of the chocolate has melted and is smooth. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until all of the chocolate melts and is smooth. You can also melt the chocolate over a double boiler on a stovetop by placing the chocolate in a metal bowl that fits over the top of a sauce pan with boiling water.
  2. Set aside 1 tablespoon each cranberries and pistachios. Stir remaining cranberries and remaining pistachios into chocolate.
  3. Spread mixture onto parchment paper in an even (1/4-inch-thick) layer. Top evenly with reserved cranberries and pistachios, and sprinkle evenly with the sea salt, pressing gently to adhere.
  4. Refrigerate 1 hour or until set. Break into bite-size pieces.
