New Year, New Recipe

Happy New Year's everyone! 2009 was an incredible journey for me - lots of highs, some lows, and tons of challenges. 2010 looks like it has even more in store now that I've started this blog, am getting back into screenwriting, and am investigating new work possibilities! (How's that for cryptic?) 

Anyway, this week should be a good one for Living with Annie. I'll have a few new recipes, a new craft, and a very exciting REVEAL of my Stay-cation major decorating project on Friday!

Today, I'm sharing a recipe recently made by my dear friend Ooroo (also known as Laura). I'm hoping to share more of her crafty work later this week and in the future, so be on the look out for it.

Without further adieu, Ooroo's Mint Chocolate Bark! (Originally found here at

1 2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels
1/3 cup coarsely chopped oven roasted or toasted almonds (Laura says to toast them in the oven on 300 degrees)

PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Line small baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

POUR morsels onto prepared baking sheet. Arrange morsels so they are touching each other in a single layer (roughly an 11 x 9-inch rectangle).

BAKE for 1 to 3 minutes or until morsels are shiny. Remove from oven to wire rack. With tip of butter knife or wooden pick, immediately swirl morsels to create a swirled pattern.

SPRINKLE with nuts. Hold baking sheet 3 inches above counter and drop to settle nuts into melted morsels. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

VARIATION: Substitute broken pretzel pieces or another nut of choice for the almonds. 

Minty chocolate-y goodness. Thanks Ooroo for the inspiration!
