Mayver’s Christmas Bark Recipe

Mayver’s Christmas Bark Recipe

Recipe by Susie Burrell

Makes: 20-25 pieces

According to leading dietitian Susie Burrell, relaxing our eating habits during the festive months is expected. However consuming foods with high levels of sugar can leave you and your family feeling more like a Christmas grinch, dealing with mood swings, weight gain, skin issues, headaches and energy burnout from a short-lived sugar rush.

For a protein rich snack that will help slow down snacking (and keep you sane), Susie recommends trying one of Mayver’s delicious recipes, such as this Christmas Bark, as a healthier alternative for Christmas gifts and car ride treats.


  • 200g dark or milk chocolate
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 1 cup Mayver’s Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup pistachios
  • 1/2 cup low sugar cranberries
  • 1 cup pretzels


  1. Melt chocolate over low heat. Stir in peanut butter.
  2. Pour into baking tray lined with baking paper.
  3. Top with a mix of cranberries, pretzels and pistachios.
  4. Allow to set in fridge for 2-3 hours. Then break and serve.



Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
