Making candy sounds like a really complicated thing to do, which is why Ina Garten likes to make chocolate bark, which is quite simple. Temper white chocolate in the microwave, a foolproof way that also cuts down on prep time. Once the chocolate is poured onto a baking sheet, add your favorite toppings and then let it harden. Ina chose items that look good and taste good together: pistachios, cranberries and apricots.
