Dark Chocolate Almond Bark

Dark Chocolate Almond Bark Recipe

Dark Chocolate Almond Bark


  • 8 ounces dark chocolate (70% cocoa or higher), chopped
  • 1 cup whole almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of sea salt (optional)
  • Optional add-ins: dried cranberries, shredded coconut, or a sprinkle of flaky sea salt


Toast Almonds:

  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Toast Almonds:
    • Spread the whole almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in the preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes or until fragrant and lightly golden. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
  3. Cool Almonds:
    • Allow the toasted almonds to cool completely. If desired, roughly chop them for smaller pieces in the bark.

Melt Dark Chocolate:

  1. Double Boiler Method:
    • Fill a saucepan with a couple of inches of water and bring it to a simmer. Place a heatproof bowl over the saucepan, ensuring the bottom doesn’t touch the water. Add the chopped dark chocolate to the bowl and gently melt, stirring occasionally.
  2. Microwave Method:
    • Alternatively, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave by heating it in 20-second intervals, stirring between each interval until smooth.

Add Vanilla and Salt:

  1. Flavor the Chocolate:
    • Once the chocolate is fully melted, stir in the vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt if desired. The salt enhances the flavor of the chocolate.

Combine with Almonds:

  1. Fold in Almonds:
    • Gently fold the cooled toasted almonds into the melted dark chocolate until the almonds are evenly coated.

Shape and Set:

  1. Line Pan:
    • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spread Mixture:
    • Spread the chocolate and almond mixture onto the parchment paper, forming a thin and even layer.
  3. Optional Add-Ins:
    • If desired, sprinkle additional toppings like dried cranberries, shredded coconut, or a sprinkle of flaky sea salt over the chocolate mixture.

Chill and Break into Pieces:

  1. Chill:
    • Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 1-2 hours or until the dark chocolate almond bark has hardened.
  2. Break into Pieces:
    • Once set, break the almond bark into irregular pieces. Enjoy the rich and crunchy Dark Chocolate Almond Bark!


  1. Store:
    • Store the almond bark in an airtight container in the refrigerator for optimal freshness. It can also be stored at room temperature in a cool place.


  • Experiment with different types of dark chocolate for varying levels of sweetness and intensity.
  • Get creative with additional toppings like chopped pistachios, dried cherries, or a dusting of cocoa powder.
  • Make a larger batch and share this delicious treat with friends and family. It’s perfect for gifting during holidays or special occasions.
