Black And White Bark

Black and White Bark

2 c. semi sweet chocolate chips or a mix of milk, double and semi sweet (this is what I do)
2 c. white chocolate chips
2/3 c. macadamia nuts or almonds, or pecans coarsely chopped and toasted

Place an oversized piece of waxed paper on the back side of a baking sheet . Place 1 ½ c. of semi sweet chips in the micro wave for 1 ½ minutes. Stir. Take a tiny bit of the chocolate on your fingers and put it under the waxed paper on the corners of the baking sheet (glue). Spread the melted choc. all around the paper. Melt 1 ½ c. white choc and stir. Place globs on the top of the spread chocolate. Take a skewer or something to move the white choc into the semi sweet (kinda like marbling). Sprinkle the remaining chips and the nuts on top and press down into the melted chocolate. Refrig for 30 min (or like I do, put on the back porch). Break up, put in a can and get rave results for doing practically nothing.

One note: You do need to toast your chopped nuts. Just toss in a skillet or put on a baking sheet for a few minutes in the oven. Nuts are always better after being toasted. It brings out their natural oils and makes them sing (not literally)
