In a bowl over boiling water begin melting the chocolate in batches.

Fruit and Nut Bark (1)

I’ll melt a little bit then add more chocolate to keep it smooth and evenly melted.

Fruit and Nut Bark (5)

I decided to make a batch with just almonds and another with almonds and dried apricots.  I chopped the apricots up into small chunks.

Fruit and Nut Bark (2)

Spread the nuts and fruit (if using) on a foil lined baking sheet. Here I have one side with almonds and the other side almonds and fruit.

Once the chocolate has been completely melted carefully pour it evenly over the nuts and fruit.

You can use a spatula to smooth it out evenly and eliminate any bubbles. Leave it to cool.  If you are in a hurry to get your taste buds on these you can increase the hardening time by placing the the baking sheet in the freezer.

Once completely hard break up into large pieces of  ‘bark’.  The top piece has the fruit in it while the bottom is just plain nuts.  Be warned.  While breaking into manageable pieces you will feel inclined to sample multiple times.
