Maple Cinnamon Cashew Bark

White chocolate and semi sweet chocolate are infused with maple flavor, cinnamon and chopped cashews!

White chocolate and semi sweet chocolate swirled together with chopped cashews!

Baking day is Thursday in the Lulu household.  I try to bust out two to three new recipes.  Some recipes fail and end up in the trash while we munch on the successes all weekend.  And that’s the problem.  By Monday, we are fresh out of dessert!  Sure I could go buy cookies, but that’s sort of sacrilege when you are food blogger!  Besides, baking is my job (or so I tell myself).

Somehow we muddle through the week.  My oldest sneaks her desserts from my baking stash (read more on this here), my son is fine with granola bars and cereal, my youngest could live on fruit snacks and my husband will just wait patiently for the next baked good to appear.

Maple flavored white chocolate is swirled with cinnamon flavored semi sweet in this fall inspired bark!

Me?  I’m not so patient.  And sometimes I’m just plain desperate.  I NEED my daily dose of sweets!  I’m not above squirting Hershey’s syrup directly into my mouth!  If I have to, I will snack on some semi sweet chocolate chips or down some hot  chocolate and if there is NOTHING better, I’ll settle for a few marshmallows.  Anything to get my fix.

This was until I remembered how ridiculously simple it is to throw together chocolate bark.  I mean it is S-I-M-P-L-E!  Melt some white chocolate, melt some semi sweet in another, pour, swirl, and set.  Pure gratification in one hour!

Fall flavored chocolate bark has cashews and two kinds of chocolate swirled together!

Since it is fall and I’m in the mood for fall flavors, I jazzed up this bark.  I infused the white chocolate with maple flavoring and the semi sweet with cinnamon then pressed chopped cashews on to the whole slab!  The results were better than anticipated and extremely satisfying!  Better than anything I would’ve purchased at the store!

Chocolate bark made with cashews, maple flavored white chocolate and cinnamon flavored semi sweet chocolate!

Now, the trick will be to keep myself from making (and eating) chocolate bark every day!

  1. I am recently becoming addicted to cashews. Awesome.

    LOL. It is true food bloggers can’t buy cookies unless we are chopping up oreos into something!. hehe

    • Cashews are one of my favorites! And true, I haven’t purchased cookies just to eat in so long!

    I’m used to seeing barks with Christmas-y flavors, so this is a beautiful fall rendition! Fantastic idea to use maple flavoring!

  3. Tanya this looks so yummy! I need to go but white chocolate :)

  4. I need to know how you get white chocolate to melt nicely. I am always in a fight with my white chocolate. And so I buy dark instead. Quick sweet fix: peanut butter on a spoon with some chocolate syrup drizzled on top. Whaaat?! I mean I never did that or anything.
    That first photo is INSANE Tanya. Super beautiful!

  5. All of my favourite ingredients in one. Love this!

  6. You’re right, Tanya. These are easy to prepare — dangerously easy! Knowing I could have some of this bark literally within minutes is both very good and, as I said, dangerous. :)

  7. This is my kind of bark!! I am kind of in love with this combo! 😉
