Almond Bark with Sea Salt
Yields 1 pound/16 pieces, more or less according to size preference.


  • 12 ounces your favorite dark chocolate (I like Wilbur Chocolate)
  • 3/4 cup whole almonds (see note)
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaky sea salt


  1. Line a 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. If melting in the microwave, heat in 30-second intervals, stirring in between.
  3. Add the almonds to the melted chocolate and stir to coat. Pour into the lined baking dish and spread the almonds out with a spatula.
  4. Sprinkle with the sea salt and refrigerate until firm. When cooled, cut or break into individual pieces. I find it easiest to return the hardened chocolate to room temperature prior to cutting, score with a knife, and then cut into uniformly sized pieces.


  • I like to use Marcona almonds. Blanched whole almonds are another good choice. If using these, toast on a rimmed baking sheet at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. (Check a few minutes early to make sure the almonds are not over browning.) If you like smaller pieces of almond throughout your bark, slivered almonds may be used instead.
