Pistachio Cranberry Bark
This Pistachio Cranberry Bark is a perfect Christmas candy recipe or homemade food gift. Holiday Bark is the easiest homemade candy you will ever make. You can make many different varieties of Christmas candy with this one easy recipe.
I love making bark candy during the holidays. As I've mentioned it is one of the easiest Christmas candies to make. You only need a few ingredients like candy bark or chocolate chips and whatever toppings you would like to add.
Last year I made a Nestles Jingle Bark for homemade holiday gifts using Nestle candy. I also made an Easy Peppermint Bark recipe using peppermint flavored toppings and a beautiful Blue & White Christmas Bark that is perfect for Christmas or Hanukkah
So far this Pistachio Cranberry Bark is my favorite. I love the way the dried cranberries and pistachio nuts taste with the white chocolate bark.
