How to make it

  • Chop the nuts, set aside.
  • Tear off about 24 inches of waxed paper and having it laying so curl is down.
  • Put all the cubes of bark in a microwave glass bowl. Plastic may work.
  • Have a good glove to be able to hold the edge of the glass bowl it will be very hot when finally cooked. I just one of those total silicone gloves with 3 fingers and it worked well.
  • Regardless of what the package says, it takes about 5 minutes in my 1000watt microwave to full melt all the cubes.
  • After about 2 minutes, open the micro and stir the cubes a little, they should have a little melt going on.
  • Stir after another minute, melting better, cubes getting smaller and getting a liquid.
  • Cook another 30 seconds, stir. It is done when there are not any more cubes, pure liquid.
  • Once it is melted, take from micro, place on counter and stir in vanilla and cranberries, stir well, coating the berries, dump in pecans, stir well, it will get thicker and harder to stir.
  • Dump in walnuts and stir until coated, not is when you need that good bamboo stirring spoon.
  • Careful pick up bowl, spoon out the goob of mix onto the was paper and start spreading it out. You have to hold the paper with one hand the spread with the other using the spoon.
  • Use the underside of the spoon to press the mix down to get it thinner and spread out, work it.
  • Then comes the magic. Just let it set and soon it is very hard and you have this huge sheet. Break off pieces to serve, eat.
  • I just recently added the walnuts, more crunch. First only used pecans. I need to cook the pecans and walnuts in the oven, I think it would bring out more of the nut flavor. If you try this, let me know how it turns out with the nuts bake first.
  • A good Christmas treat. The bark is sometimes hard to find in the grocery store the closer to Christmas time.
