One of my favorite holiday treats growing up were those miniature ritz crackers filled with peanut butter and dipped in white chocolate.  I believe this is when I fell in love with the sweet/salty combination.  Something incredibly magical happens when you combine crispy and salty with creamy, sweet white chocolate…its insanely good.  Oddly enough this was and is the only way I like white chocolate…besides these scrumptious morsels, I am a dark chocolate lover through and through!

Holiday Frito Bark


Well, this Holiday Frito Bark uses gluten free corn chips for the salty component and crunchy texture of this holiday candy, making it a fun and unique gluten free holiday treat!  The addition of toasted pecans adds just the right touch of buttery nuttiness helping to tame the sweetness of that white chocolate and  to top it all off…a drizzle of semisweet chocolate crowns this epic treat!

To make this Holiday Frito Brittle you can use tempered chocolate or almond bark.  Both will work well, but if you are not familiar with how to temper chocolate or don’t want to mess with it, you may want to stick with the almond bark.  Tempering chocolate can be tricky and if not tempered correctly the bark will not harden properly and have that snap that we all look for in the perfect chocolate bar.  If this happens just keep it in the fridge!  If you are looking for a sugar free version of white chocolate to use, check out this recipe for Low Carb Chocolate Bars from Low Carb Yum.
