Make your own chocolate bark for the holidays! The dark chocolate, cherries, nuts and wheat germ combine to create a heart-healthy — and delicious — treat your friends and family will love.

Makes 20 pieces

12 ounces semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup shelled raw pistachios

1/2 cup dried sweetened sour cherries, chopped

1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons Kretschmer Honey Crunch Wheat Germ, divided

To toast pistachios, preheat oven to 350° F. Spread nuts in a single layer on baking pan with sides. Cook 7 to 10 minutes or until nuts start to turn golden, shaking pan halfway through cook time.

To prepare bark, place chocolate chips in medium microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 1-minute increments, stirring after each minute until smooth.

Line a 9 x 13-inch rimmed baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Mix pistachios, cherries and 1/3 cup wheat germ into melted chocolate. Pour onto prepared baking sheet and use an off-set spatula to smooth out into a thin even layer.

Evenly sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons of wheat germ on top of mixture. Transfer to refrigerator and chill until hardened, about 1 hour.

Roughly break up the bark into 20 pieces and serve or package for gifts.
