Pistachio Mixed Fruits White Chocolate Bark


I have no clue what a chocolate bark is until I stumbled upon a chocolate bark recipe from browneyedbaker. Chocolate bark is actually a sheet of chocolate usually studded with nuts, dried fruits and broken up into irregular pieces with no specific pattern which sounds interesting and easy to pick up.  I'm very pleased with my first attempt and hope to try out other variations.  What's more, as X'mas is just round the corner, why not make some, wrap in decorative cellophane bags, adorn with a ribbon and give as a gift.  Homemade treats certainly are great gifts for the holidays and the festive season!




Recipe for Pistachio Mixed Fruits White Chocolate Bark (adapted from 'here' with modifications)

Ingredients                                                                      

  • 8 oz white chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 oz light roasted shelled pistachios, coarsely chopped
  • 1.1/2 oz dried cranberries, raisins and golden raisins, coarsely chopped
Method
  1. Line a 7 inch or 8 inch baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Melt 6 oz of white chocolate over a double boiler, keep stirring, once melted, remove from heat. Wipe off the water from the sides and bottom of the pot.  Add in the remaining 2 oz of chopped white chocolate and stir till fully melted. (This is the 'seeding' method to temper the chocolate).
  3. Add pistachios and mixed fruits and continue to stir till well combined.
  4. Spread chocolate mixture onto the prepared pan in an even layer, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick depending on the size of the pan and the desired thickness.
  5. Let cool in room temperature and chill in the refrigerator till set.
  6. Break up the bark into pieces, store in an air-tight container and keep refrigerated.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
