Another quick and easy, festive, indulgent dessert in this harried holiday season! It is so moreish that even the people claiming to be ‘off desserts’ are found to be nibbling on this Kesar Pista White Chocolate Bark 🙂

Kesar means saffron. In this recipe, white chocolate is scented with saffron, studded with pistachios and craisins and sprinkled with sea salt…need I say more?

I made the heart healthy Hara Bhara Quinoa Kebab in Christmas tree shapes for the meal….it is all in the balance, isn’t it ? 🙂  Btw, this time I used cooked black beans instead of the green peas in the recipe and love both versions.

Here is the easy step by step pictorial for the Kesar Pista White Chocolate Bark with Sea Salt.
