This is such an easy dessert and fairly healthy, too, as far as desserts go. Sometimes, holiday baking just becomes too much and I need a little break from all of the measuring and accuracy that comes with baking. It can be nice to just put together a bark that my little nephews can help with and I don't have to think too much about.
Orange and chocolate is one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations--especially around the holidays. Something about it feels so classic and festive. I love the crunch of the pistachios and the green color they add to the top.
No, I did *not* temper the chocolate. Feel free to do that! I was looking to make a simple dessert, here. There is not as much snap to the chocolate because I didn't temper it, but it still breaks off nicely.
This is a great dessert to make with little kids for the holidays!
