Three chocolate bark with spiced pecans and dried cherries

  • Preparation Time45 mins
  • Cooking Time120 mins
  • DifficultyMedium
7 tbsp butter
100g brown granulated sugar
200g pecan pieces
Salt
Cayenne pepper
Pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch ground cinnamon
450g dark chocolate, cut into pieces
450g milk chocolate, cut into pieces
450g white chocolate, cut into pieces
350g dried cherries, rehydrated and chopped
1) Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas mark 6.

2) In a large saute pan, melt 60g of butter. Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves and is bubbly. Add the pecans. Season the pecans with salt, cayenne, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the sugar starts to caramelize and coat the pecans evenly. Cook for about 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and spread the pecans over a parchment lined baking sheet. Place the pan in the oven and roast the pecans for about 6 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and cool completely. Break the pecans into small pieces.

3) Fill 3 small saucepans halfway up the pan with water. Place the pans over medium heat and bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. In three separate mixing bowls, add each type of chocolate into the individual bowls. Place the bowls over the saucepans. After about 2 minutes over the heat, the chocolate will start to melt. Stir each chocolate until totally melted. Remove the chocolate from the heat and stir 1 tablespoon of butter into each bowl of chocolate. Pour each type of chocolate over the marble or a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the pecans and cherries over the chocolates. Using a metal spatula, spread the mixture out evenly back and forth to about 1cm thick. Either place the marble in the refrigerator or allow to sit out until set, about a couple of hours. Break the bark into medium pieces and serve.
