This easy recipe will satisfy your chocolate craving—with a little fruity crunch. Makes 8 2-ounce servings.

12 ounces dark chocolate, chopped, divided

½ cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup chopped pistachios

1/3 cup chopped dried apricots

¼ cup slivered almonds

2 teaspoons fresh organic orange zest

Heat 8 ounces chopped chocolate on the stove until completely melted, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining chopped chocolate until melted and combined. Pour the melted chocolate onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread the mixture into a ¼-inch thick rectangle.

Break or cut the chocolate into pieces. Source: Fast & Simple Gluten-Free by Gretchen F. Brown, RD
