Nutty Dark Chocolate Bark

Recipe by
READY IN: 1hr 10mins
YIELD: 18 pieces


  • 16
    ounces best quality 70% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1
    cup whole almond, toasted
  • 1
    cup whole skinned hazelnuts, toasted


  • Line a sheet tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place ¾ of the chocolate in a large glass bowl and microwave on high power for 20 to 30 seconds.  Stir with a rubber spatula.  Continue to heat and stir in 30-second increments until the chocolate is just melted.  Immediately add the remaining chocolate and allow to sit at room temperature, stirring often, until it’s completely smooth, slightly cooled, and glossy.
  • Stir in almonds and hazelnuts.  Pour mixture onto prepared sheet tray and, using a small offset spatula, smooth into a rough rectangle, using the thickness of the nuts as a guide.
  • Refrigerate until firm, 30 minutes to 1 hour.  Crack or cut bark into equal pieces and enjoy.
