  • In a small bowl, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir until smooth.
  • Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or waxed paper. Spread the melted dark chocolate into an approximately 8×5-inch rectangle.
  • If using the white chocolate, melt it in the same manner as the dark chocolate and drizzle it in a zigzag pattern across the dark chocolate.
  • Sprinkle with the chopped pistachios, apricots, and ginger and press gently to set them into the chocolate. Chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Break into pieces and serve. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

    The white chocolate wouldn't melt. It clumped into hard sticky granules. Otherwise the recipe was fine.

    I have now made this recipe over 4 times in 3 months. So easy and I love the taste of salt from the pistachios mixed with the sweetness of the chocolate. I don't use the apricots when I make it, but that's just me.
