Not that plain chocolate is lacking in the flavor department, but it sure wouldn’t hurt to experience extra taste and texture with some crunchy, chewy additions. This bark recipe uses dark chocolate as its base, and apricots, figs, raisins, and cashews sprinkled throughout for a healthy dose of antioxidants and fiber.
