One of my favorite (and classic) recipes to make this holiday season is also one of the easiest and most crowd-pleasing recipes on my Christmas baking list. For these reasons, I thought it would be an excellent recipe to share first on the blog! It’s so easy – your newborn or fur child could probably make it.
What you will need:
- Milk Chocolate Melting Waffers (I swear by the Merkens Brand available at the Bulk Barn)
- Unsalted Almonds
Now, you may be wondering why I haven’t added portions for these ingredients. What I love about making almond bark, is that you can really make as little or as much as you’d like. You can also make it as almondy (I just made that word up) as you want.
To get started, I recommend adding a cup of your chocolate wafers to a microwave friendly (and safe) bowl and heating for 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval until your chocolate is melted.
Next, sprinkle in as many (or as little) of your unsalted almonds as you would like. For one cup of chocolate wafers, I usually throw in a handful of almonds. Stir these into the melted chocolate.
Line a tray with wax or parchment paper and pour your melted chocolate mix onto the paper to your desired thickness.
Place your tray in the fridge to cool.
Once your bark is hard, you can break into pieces and you’re ready to serve, gift, enjoy – eat the whole darn thing.
It’s THAT easy.
And if you want to switch things up, you can create this same delicious recipe with white chocolate just as easily! In fact, I always make both over the holidays.
Do you have an almond bark recipe you swear by? I’d love to hear it!
