What You’ll Need
Makes 6 to 8 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours
Line a sheet pan with parchment.
Place 9 ounces of the chocolate wafers in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave, stirring with a rubber spatula every 30 seconds, until just melted. Stir 3 ounces of chocolate wafers into the melted chocolate, a few at a time, until glossy and smooth.
Pour the melted chocolate onto the prepared pan and spread it into an evenly thin layer, stopping an inch before the edge of the parchment. (If you have a small off-set spatula, now’s the time to bust it out.) Scatter about ⅓ cup dried berries, 3 tablespoons pistachios, 3 tablespoons pepitas, and a couple of pinches of salt over the melted chocolate. Let rest at room temperature until set, 2½ to 3 hours.
Break the bark into pieces and serve. Transfer any leftover bark to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
