Chocolate Almond Bark

It’s been a while! Yesterday, I made one of my mom’s dessert recipes. This is for what I’m calling Chocolate Almond Bark. It doesn’t come out looking pretty—in fact I looks like a mess, but it tastes quite delicious. The pictures are kind of dark (hate winter lighting!) and they don’t do the dessert justice. I did make a mistake in chilling the bark before breaking it up into pieces. I think it might have been easier to break up if I had just let the pan completely cool. I was just too impatient – it looked so good!

 Ingredients

  • 20-24 graham cracker halves (chocolate or honey-flavored)
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 10 oz. bag sliced almonds
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips

 

This is quick recipe too. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Then, line the bottom of a greased pan with graham crackers.

On the next layer, spread the almonds evenly.

Separately in a small saucepan, place the butter and sugar. Bring to a rolling boil over medium. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove saucepan from heat. After the mixture has stopped bubbling, pour it over the nuts. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes.

 

Remove from oven and scatter chocolate chips over the top. I used a whole bag of Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips.

 

After a the chips have softened, spread the chocolate around with a butter knife.

Let the bark cool before breaking into random sized pieces.
