Fun Dessert Recipes For Your NYE Party

My favorite parties to host are not sit down dinners, they are not formal affairs. My favorite parties are those where the guest are encouraged to eat, drink and socialize the night away. I’m a huge fan of appetizers and desserts in lieu of meals  - let’s be honest those are often our favorite parts anyways. With that in mind, Monk Fruit In The Raw has some really great recipes  and I think a few would be fun to serve at New Years Eve parties.

chocolate bark with dried fruit and nuts recipe

Chocolate Bark with Dried Fruits and Almonds
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1/4c sliced almonds
  • 1/4c dried cranberries
  • 1/4c Hunza or golden raisins
  • 1/4c Thompson raisins
  • 1 Monk Fruit In The Raw® sweetened dark chocolate, preferably tempered
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine the almonds, cranberries, and raisins.
  2. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  3. Spread the Monk Fruit In The Raw™ -sweetened tempered chocolate in a roughly 8-inch x 12-inch x 1/4-inch layer on the baking sheet with a spatula – make sure it is even.
  4. Evenly sprinkl the fruit and nuts over the chocolate.
  5. Set the Bark aside until the chocolate sets firmly, 2-3 hours.
  6. Once set, break the pieces into various sizes.
  7. Place the pieces of Bark in an airtight container.
  8. Tips: Chocolate bark can be made with melted chocolate that is not tempered. To harden, chill the bark until the chocolate is firm, and serve it directly from the refrigerator. The chocolate may look cloudy or streaky and will melt quickly in your fingers, but the bark will taste as good as when made using tempered chocolate.

Tip: The main sweetening ingredient in Monk Fruit In The Raw is simply monk fruit, a taste that works in any recipe that calls for sugar. Since it has zero calories you will be doing yourself a favor by using it in place of sugar – a great way to already get ahead on your New Years Resolution. It swaps cup for cup so no guess work involved.

I’ll admit I have only ever made pudding from a box which is probably why I love the recipe. It’s completely homemade and seems simple enough. Plus the colors are fun and festive.
