Dark Chocolate Rose Petal Raspberry Bark:

Ingredients:

  • 1 1lb bar dark chocolate. I get mine from Trader Joe’s
  • 1 tbsp jam of your choice. I used rose petal jam that my friend Georgina had given me. But you can use raspberry jam or strawberry jam.
  • 1 tsp raspberry liqueur or port but not needed
  • 1-cup fresh raspberries cut in half. If the raspberries are small then there is no need to cut them.
  • Rose petals from 1 fragrant rose bud

Directions:

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Chop the dark chocolate bar into bite size chunks. In a microwave-safe bowl melt the dark chocolate until creamy. Do not burn the chocolate!  Melt in the microwave in 20-second increments, stirring after each 20 seconds. After a total of 2 minutes, the chocolate should be melted into a creamy texture.

Take chocolate out of microwave and add 1 tbsp jam and mix-in. You can also add liqueur at this point.

Pour the chocolate on the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Evenly spread the chocolate.  Add the raspberries over the chocolate.  Gently press raspberries down so that they are a little sunk in the chocolate.  Now top with edible rose petals.

Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for the chocolate to harden, approximately 1 hour.  After an hour, take the chocolate out of the refrigerator and dust with powdered sugar, but not necessary. Gently break the chocolate into bark like pieces.

It’s ready to serve.

Cook’s Notes:  You can save the remainder of the chocolate in the refrigerator in a container with a paper towel to absorb the moisture that will get released by the raspberries. Because this chocolate has fresh raspberries, it is perishable and needs to be consumed within 5 days.
