A festive dark and white chocolate bark with golden accents perfect for New Year's Eve!

Today I bring you my last post of 2015. It’s been an absolutely amazing year for Broma Bakery, and I’m so excited to celebrate with my favorite ingredient: chocolate.

When I think of New Years I think of blacks, whites, and golds. I think of champagne and glitter, of chocolate and party dresses. It’s a classy and festive time of year and I love it.

Though I completely agree that the ball dropping at midnight is one of the most underwhelming sights one can see, I have to say that NYE has always been a favorite holiday of mine.

From drinking Andre’s with my girlfriends in high school to working the door at Justin Timberlake’s NYC restaurant’s party to standing in a snowy Michigan street kissing my boyfriend at 12 o’clock, my New Year’s Eves have been memorable.

Oh, and there’s that one year I rode a mechanical bull for the first time after many a glass of champagne.

Though who knows what this year’s night will entail, one thing is for certain that I will be celebrating with this chocolate bark. It’s so perfectly festive and a total crowd-pleaser. It’s artistic, yet so ridiculously simple to make.

The nutty honeyed almonds provide a tasty crunch on top of the velvety chocolate, and the candied ginger gives it a bright zing. The raisins add an extra hint of gold, while the sea salt brings out the flavors of the chocolates even more.

Delish.

A very Happy New Year to you, my friends. This year has been a wonderful milestone in my life, and it’s been truly amazing to see this blog’s growth in the last 365 days. A huge thank you for following along, and cheers to all in the year to come!

Now go make some bark.
