Substitutions + Alternatives

Can I use regular chocolate?

Feel free to make this recipe your own. I use dairy-free chocolate, but feel welcome to choose your preferred chocolate option without any recipe adjustments. Unless specified otherwise, you have the flexibility to use the chocolate of your choice for the recipe.

How To Make Chocolate Bark with Honey Glazed Almonds

  1. First things first, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grab a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper – this will make cleanup a breeze later!
  2. Now, let’s get those almonds nice and toasty. Spread them out evenly on the lined baking sheet and pop them in the preheated oven for 6-8 minutes. You want them to be just slightly golden brown, so keep an eye on them! Once they’re done, take them out and set them aside to cool.
  1. Time to make that delicious honey glaze! In a small pot on your stovetop, combine the honey and sugar. Heat it over low heat and stir it together until everything is nice and incorporated. Then, take it off the heat – we don’t want to burn the honey!
  2. Add those roasted almonds to the honey-sugar mixture and give it a good stir. You want all the almonds to be evenly coated in that sticky-sweet goodness.
  1. Now comes the fun part – arranging the glazed almonds! Spread them back out on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet, making sure they’re close together in a single layer. Then, pop the whole thing in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the chocolate. 30 minutes should do the trick!
  1. While the almonds are chilling, it’s chocolate melting time! Grab a microwave-safe bowl and add your chocolate gems (or whichever chocolate you choose). Melt the chocolate in 30-second intervals in the microwave, stirring well after each interval. This usually takes about 90 seconds in total, but keep an eye on it to avoid burning the chocolate.
  2. Take out your chilled almonds and get ready for the chocolate magic! Pour the melted chocolate evenly over the almonds, making sure they’re all coated in that delicious chocolaty goodness.
  3. Now, the hardest part – waiting! Place the baking sheet back in the refrigerator and let the chocolate chill for 30 minutes, or until it’s completely set.
  1. Once the chocolate is set, take out your masterpiece and break it into pieces. The size is totally up to you – big chunks for sharing or bite-sized pieces for a quick pop of sweetness.

Variations & Substitutions

  • Sweet and Salty Sensation: Sprinkle some sea salt over the melted chocolate before it sets. This adds a delightful contrast of sweet and salty flavors.
  • Fruity Fun: For a burst of sweetness and chewiness, stir in dried fruits like cranberries or chopped cherries to the chocolate before pouring it over the almonds.
  • Elegant Extra Touch: Drizzle melted white chocolate over the set chocolate bark to create a beautiful and decorative design.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I use other nuts instead of almonds?

Absolutely! This recipe is all about customization. Feel free to substitute the almonds with your favorite nuts. Here are some ideas:

  • Pecans: These add a buttery and slightly sweet flavor that pairs beautifully with the chocolate.
  • Walnuts: They offer a richer and slightly bitter taste that can balance the sweetness of the chocolate.
  • Hazelnuts: These have a nutty flavor with a hint of chocolate, making them a perfect match for this recipe.

Can I use dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate?

Of course! Dark chocolate adds a deeper and more intense flavor to the bark. You can use any type of chocolate you prefer – milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or even white chocolate for a sweeter treat.

How long will the chocolate bark last?

When stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, your chocolate bark can last for up to two weeks. But let’s be honest, with how delicious it is, it probably won’t last that long!
