Almond Dark Chocolate Bark Delight Recipe


  • 500g Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
  • 150g Whole almonds
  • Optional: Flaky sea salt for garnish


  1. Preparation of Almonds:

    • Picture this: your kitchen filled with the warm aroma of roasted almonds. Preheat your oven to 150°C (300°F) and let those almonds bask in the heat for 10-15 minutes until they're gloriously golden. Keep an eagle eye on them to avoid burning! It's all about that perfect crunch.
  2. Tempering the Dark Chocolate:

    • It's showtime for the dark chocolate! Chop it into tantalizing morsels and let the magic begin. Melt two-thirds of the chocolate in a double boiler until it's a sultry 45-50°C (113-122°F). Add the rest, stir like a maestro, and watch as the chocolate transforms into a velvety symphony.
  3. Combining Ingredients:

    • Now, the real dance begins. Embrace the roasted almonds into the tempered chocolate, swirling them together in a heavenly mix of textures. Save a few almonds for the grand finale!
  4. Forming the Bark:

    • Let the creative artist in you shine. Pour the chocolate-almond extravaganza onto a baking sheet, spreading it into a tantalizingly thin layer to suit your desires. Sprinkle the remaining almonds like stardust, and for that extra pizzazz, a touch of flaky sea salt for a taste explosion.
  5. Crystallization and Breakthrough:

    • As the chocolate cools, let it set in its glory at 18-20°C (64-68°F). Behold the masterpiece that crystallizes before your eyes! Once hardened, break it into alluring, irregular pieces for that artisanal touch.
  6. Storage Secrets:

    • Preserve your masterpiece! Store the bark in an airtight container at 14-16°C (57-61°F) to maintain its captivating snap and allure.

Voilà! Your Almond Dark Chocolate Bark Delight is born. Indulge in the symphony of flavors and textures that dance harmoniously on your palate. Ready to embark on more culinary adventures? I'm here to guide you through the gastronomic wilderness. Bon appétit, Chef!
