For this recipe I really wanted to make something different from the usual peppermint or M&M’s Christmas bark. At first I thought of making a healthier version of it filled with dried fruits, seeds, and nuts, but after some protesting from my family (they thought Christmastime was a perfectly good time to indulge) I came up with this version instead. What inspired me was the classic taste of cherry cordial. I have always loved the combination of dark chocolate and cherries, so I was very excited about combining these two flavors in the Christmas bark.


  • 2 Cups Dark Chocolate Morsels (12oz/339.6g)
  • 1 Cup White Chocolate Morsels (6oz./169.8g)
  • 1 Teaspoon Canola Oil (5ml)
  • 1 Cup Maraschino Cherries (10oz/283g)
  1. Melt both types of chocolate separately in a double boiler or in the microwave according to package instructions. Add the canola oil to the dark chocolate and stir until well combined.
  2. Chop the maraschino cherries into small pieces. Set aside.
  3. Pour the melted dark chocolate onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Spread out evenly. Drizzle white chocolate over top and then swirl with a spatula. Sprinkle the chopped cherries over the chocolate.
  4. Refrigerate for 35 minutes or until set. Cut or break bark into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
