This is one of the easiest and most-impressive looking confections you can make during the holidays. Melt the contents of a bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave (careful, it burns easily) or in a sauce pan (or over a double boiler, if you have one). Spread the melted confection on waxed paper. Sprinkle with a cup of chopped, unsalted pistachios and a cup of dried cranberries. It looks festive with the red and green ingredients.
For marble bark (with or without the add-in’s), melt semi-sweet chocolate chips and pour next to the white chocolate on the wax paper. Swirl the two melted chocolates together. Use a toothpick for some fine effects.
Refrigerate until hard, then break it into pieces.
(This is a nice-add on if you are making cookie packages.)
Here’s another variation (but my favorite is still the pistachio/cranberry version!):
