Edible Diwali Gifts: An Easy-to-Make Pistachio Rose Chocolate Bark this Festive Season

2 min read

Decadent chocolate bark sprinkled with roasted pistachios, crushed rose petals and cardamom dust.

Who can resist something sweet? Especially chocolate! This holiday season, instead of the same old desserts, why not surprise your loved ones with some homemade chocolate bark that tastes just a good as it looks? Take your chocolate of choice (I chose dark and white) and melt it down, top with roasted nutty pistachios, sweet rose petals, fragrant cardamom dust and finish with a pinch of pink sea salt. It’s a treat too tempting to pass up.

The recipe is easily adjustable by changing up the toppings. I’m planning to try walnuts with dark chocolate next and dried cranberries and almonds with white chocolate. 

Gifting this chocolate bark? Just cut the chocolate into shards, squares or your favorite shape once it’s set and pack it in parchment paper. There you have it, a beautiful homemade edible gift.
