Vegan Chocolate Bark With Dried Fruits and Nuts

Share

This simple vegan chocolate bark is bejeweled with chewy bits of sweet dried berries, apricots, and ginger, and crunch from nuts, seeds, and coconut.

This is the perfect nibble. Use good-quality chocolate chips and organic dried fruit. So satisfying. My favorite going-on-a-car-trip snack. Store dried fruit in airtight containers away from light and heat.
