Dried Fruit Chocolate Barks

I had some strawberries, kiwis, and oranges that are just sitting in the fridge for some time, instead of eating them fresh this time, I dehydrated them for some yummy dried fruit chocolate barks. I used dark Valrhona chocolate I brought back from Wholefoods, combining the bittersweet taste of cocoa to the tangy sweet fruits (with a hint of sourness); the result is fantastic. I can’t even stop nibbling on these colorful beauties!

上禮拜我買了草莓、橘子和奇異果,但一直沒有機會吃,週末剛好拿它們做果乾巧克力磚。從美國Wholefoods帶回來的法國法芙娜苦甜黑巧克力、配上酸酸甜甜的水果,真的超級對味,吃了ㄧ口後完全停不下來了怎麼辦…..

Slice the fruits into thin pieces and then baked them at 100 degrees Celsius in the oven for an hour. Turn and bake for another hour. Out they will come nicely dried with just a hint of remaining moisture. I prefer them this way compared to the really dry and crispy version.

將水果切片後送入烤箱,以攝氏100度低溫烘烤ㄧ個小時。翻面後再持續烘烤一小時,出來的乾果片會帶點微微的水氣。我個人是比較喜歡不是非常乾的果乾,所以這樣對我來說是剛剛好。

Melt the chocolate on a double boiler. Line a square mold with parchment paper, pour the melted chocolate and distribute it evenly. Tap the pan a few times to rid of any air bubble, then refrigerate it for about 15 minutes to set.

將巧克力切碎後放到碗盆中,將碗盆放置在煮水中的鍋子上,利用煮水的熱水氣慢慢地融化巧克力。過程中要不斷攪拌,避免熱氣太盛將巧克力煮焦了。準備一個方形的模具,放入烘培紙,再把融化好、絲絲滑滑的的巧克力倒入模具中。巧克力漿分布均勻後,拿起模具往下敲幾次,避免氣泡留在巧克力中。放入冰箱約15分左右,讓巧克力稍微凝固就好。

The chocolate should be thick and not runny at this point. Place the dried fruit slices anywhere you’d like, and put them back to the fridge for 40 to 60 minutes.

將果乾片分布在有點凝稠的巧克力上,再送回冰箱約40分鐘。

Now the chocolate has hardened. Cut them into square or rectangular bars and enjoy. These are even more fabulous with some red wine!

現在巧克力片已經變硬了,將它切成方形或你喜歡的形狀,然後大口開吃吧。配上一杯紅酒,真的是好享受啊!
