Almond Marble Bark

(2 Votes)
10 Min

Do you know why this is so popular, besides the taste? Because we get to break up the bark into bite-sized pieces. I don't know which is more fun - breaking it up or eating it!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/3 cup (2 ounces) white baking chips
What To Do:
  1. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, heat the 2 cups milk chocolate chips with the shortening on high power for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring often until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the almonds then pour into an 8-inch square baking pan that has been lined with aluminum foil that has been coated with nonstick baking spray.

  2. Place the 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips into a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag and heat in the microwave on high power for about 45 seconds, until melted. Knead the chips until smooth. Cut a tiny corner from the bag and drizzle over the chocolate in the pan. Swirl with a knife. Chill for about 1 hour, or until set. Lift the foil from the pan then break the bark into pieces and serve.
             Makes about 1 pound.

To toast the almonds, place them on a rimmed cookie sheet in a single layer and bake them in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 3 to 5 minutes, just until golden. Watch them carefully to avoid burning.

this is the identical recipe, well except for the typos in this one as noted, as Chocolate Almond Bark.

I love it. Reminds me of when I was a kid and my mom made this.

There's a typo in the recipe: in Step 2, place 1/3 cup white baking chips (not semisweet chocolate chips) in the resealable plastic bag :) Other than that - great recipe.
