There’s only one way to properly look at a gorgeous, decadent, expensive pound of dark chocolate quickly melting into nothing but a big mess all over your counter – as a sign!
Life sends us signs all the time, and it’s important to listen up!
Signs can mean all kinds of crazy things.
Maybe it’s a sign to get more creative with what you already have…
Or a sign to take it easy for a few minutes and let your only worry be stirring an utterly gorgeous pan of melted indulgence…
Or a sign that a little chocolate love will make everything in your day a teeny bit better…
Whatever it is, you should listen to signs. Especially when they involve a pound of melted chocolate.
This sign turned out seriously dreamy!
It was an epic experience in semi-candy making, and I was only active for about 7 minutes. 7 minutes! It’s the little things that get me stoked these days.
Curry, cumin, and cinnamon get melted into our chocolate before we top it with toasted coconut and chopped pistachios – so pretty, so simple!
A little tip… if you plan on sharing this, I’d double the batch. Between my boyfriend and my roommates, mine lasted a little over an hour!
Dark Chocolate Coconut, Curry, Pistachio Bark – Baker by Nature
1 pound dark chocolate (the better quality, the better taste), chopped into small chunks
2 1/2 teaspoons curry powder (use less at first if you’re not sure how much you like curry)
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
pinch of cinnamon
1 cup toasted coconut flakes (preheat oven to 375, place coconut flakes in a shallow baking pan and place in oven for 5-8 minutes stirring frequently)
1 cup chopped pistachios
Line a 9×12 baking pan with parchment paper.
In a double broiler melt chocolate over low heat until completely smooth. Stir in curry, cumin, and cinnamon.
Pour melted chocolate into prepared pan, smoothing the chocolate out only 3/4 of the way to keep thickness. Sprinkle with toasted coconut and pistachios and set aside for at least 2 hours. I placed my batch in the refrigerator for an hour and it was set!
