Chocolate bark gets a festive French makeover! If you wander around Paris and make your way through every chocolate shop you see (which is what every food-obsessed gal does, right?), you’ll run across beautiful trays of little palettes. What you’re looking at is essentially chocolate bark, made the fancy French way!
Pistachio Chocolate Bark (Palettes)Chocolate bark is one of the most delicious holiday treats, gifts and the best part is, it’s easy to make. I wanted something just that simple, but a little more fancy, and easy-to-package and give.

I topped these holiday palettes with little bits of dried fruit, candied ginger, those beautiful green, already shelled Wonderful pistachios, and of course some little silver dragees and holiday sprinkles. The kids can also help. Spoon the white and dark chocolate onto parchment and let their little hands sprinkle and arrange the toppings.Pistachio Chocolate Bark (Palettes)

When the chocolate set, I packaged little stacks in mini cellophane bags and tied them up. Very French Christmas if I do say so myself! Take that, chocolate bark! Ohh la la!

A chic version of chocolate bark! The French call these little treats Palettes and they are simply fine chocolate with artfully arranged nuts and fruit. Stick to Wonderful pistachios and add some holiday sprinkles to make them your own.
