Strawberry Pistachio Bark

If you need a super fast, super delicious treat for the next party you're going to, or to impress your coworkers, or just to enjoy on your own, look no further. This candy is a nice mix of sweet and salty, smooth and crunchy, it has something for everyone! It takes only a few minutes to put together, but will need to be refrigerated for a while to set properly.

Start by melting the almond bark - I did this in the microwave at 50% power in 45 second intervals, stirring between each heating. At the end, stir it well until it is smooth. Hold back some of the pistachios and strawberries to use on top of the candy. Then add the remaining chopped pistachios,

and the freeze dried strawberries.

Stir well to coat the strawberries and pistachios then quickly spread it out onto a waxed-paper lined baking sheet.

Place the remaining strawberries over the top and sprinkle with the chopped pistachios.

Refrigerate for two hours or so until set, then remove and break into pieces.

That's all there is to it! You will love it.

And you'll probably want to share it, or else you might eat all of it yourself, not that I would know anything about that.

Reserve a few tablespoons of pistachios and strawberries. Add the rest to the almond bark and stir well to coat. Quickly spread onto a wax-paper lined baking sheet. Top with the reserved pistachios and strawberries. Refrigerate 2 hours to set, then remove and break into pieces.
