Vegan Cranberry-Kale Popcorn Marshmallow Holiday Bark

Need something quick and easy to bring to a holiday party?  Say hello to today’s Vegan Cranberry-Kale Popcorn Marshmallow Holiday Bark!

This is a really funny recipe because it started as a simple chocolate and popcorn bark but then I realized a had a bag of vegan marshmallows in my cabinet and a bag of dried cranberries and kale chips. How could I say no to an easy way to add red and green (without using food coloring) to this dessert? In the end the”bark” ended up turning out more like bars but I haven’t gotten any complaints!

I recommend making a big batch of kale chips (because they’re a delicious snack) and using the crumbles for the bark. Here’s my easy kale chip recipe.

For all you sweet and salty dessert lovers- this one’s for you!

ps- looking to lighten up on the sweets a bit after the holiday are over? Join me for 21 days of healthy, colorful eating and SO much more!
