The Very Best Almond Bark, Made with the Simplest Recipe

What is Chocolate Almond Bark?

Chocolate almond bark is a type of sweet candy that features a whole lotta almonds. It’s made in one sheet of chocolate, then broken into smaller pieces for the just-right size of chocolate indulgence.

Almond Bark Ingredients

  • Chocolate Chips – if you want to make vegan almond bark, just make sure to use vegan chocolate chips. All other almond bark ingredients are good to go!
  • Coconut Oil – you can leave this one out, but I like how it gets your chocolate nice and smooth.
  • Almonds – I always use unsalted, roasted almonds because they have the best flavor without adding in any salt. If you’d like to add salt, I suggest sprinkling that on top of the almond bark once it’s all cooled and chilled.

How to Make Chocolate Almond Bark Like a Chocolatier (aka Chocolate Boss)

Wanna learn how to make the best chocolate almond bark ever? Have a seat and grab your favorite chocolate! (Might as well get some munching in while we learn, ya know?)

Line the Pan

First things first, grab your favorite small or medium baking sheet. Everyone has one, right? 😉 Then, line it with wax paper or parchment paper.


Melt the Chocolate

Next, melt your chocolate and coconut oil using the double boiler method or the microwave. Just make sure to stir it altogether until nice and smooth.

Fold Almonds Into Melted Chocolate

Now, it’s almond time! Fold in roasted, unsalted almonds until all of the almonds are fully coated.

Pour Almond Bark Mixture

Pour your almond bark mixture onto the prepared sheet. Then, grab a clean spatula and spread it into an even layer. You can make your almond bark as thick or as thin as you’d like.

Optionally, Top with Almonds

I love giving my almond bark that extra pop by topping it with more roasted almonds! Sprinkle almonds onto that layer of melted chocolate almond bark goodness, then press lightly down on each almond to ensure it embeds nicely. You can skip this step, but I feel that adding it in creates that extra wow factor. 🙂

Refrigerate, Break, and Enjoy!

Place your sheet of melty soon-to-be almond bark into the refrigerator until firm. Once firm, peel off the parchment or wax paper and slice or break that sheet of chocolate almond goodness! You’re making the almond bark, baby! Now enjoy the best chocolate almond bark!

  1. This looks so amazing, I love the combination of roasted almonds with chocolate, here in Spain it is a very popular sweet, such a great and easy recipe…fantastic! giving this a try for sure

    1. Thanks Albert! The combo of chocolate and almonds cannot be beat! Can’t wait to hear what you think. 🙂

  2. Impressed about the 88%! Kroger just got their own brand of 72% chocolate chips and I felt uber sophisticated and healthy trying those in recipes instead of semi-sweet. Will definitely make this. Who needs a fancy chocolatier when you can make it at home so easily? I wonder how pistachios would be in this…

  3. I love nuts and chocolate together! And I adore dark chocolate. I like it much better than milk chocolate. And it’s probably a good thing that more candy bars are milk chocolate and not dark chocolate or I’d be in big trouble. I love how quick, easy and gorgeous your bark recipe is! Almond bark reminds me of my best friend and I can’t wait to make your delightful recipe.

    1. Haha, right? I’d be in the same boat if all/most bars were dark chocolate! Thank you so much for your sweet compliments! I can’t wait to hear what you think, Elaine. 🙂

    1. Right? The nuts adds such a tasty balance to the chocolate! Thanks Marsha. 🙂 Wishing you a wonderful week! xoxo

  4. I’m 100% a nuts and chocolate girl. Honestly, and this feels almost shameful to admit, I don’t really like chocolate without nuts or fruit in it! And the darker the better! I might even sprinkle a few salt flakes over the top!
