Chocolate Salted Walnut Almond Bark

With my sisters both away at school, I turn to my boyfriend to model my recipes. Here's his first shot! So handsome. And the chocolate brittle with sea salt ain't bad either...



Ingredients:
Serves 10-12
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • (or sub with any of your favorite nuts, totaling 2 cups. Next time I am going to try pecan and macadamia! mmmm. Mouth.Is.Watering.)
  • 1 bag dairy free chocolate chips. I used Enjoy Life Foods Dark Chocolate Morsels. They are my new obsession!!! And I love them!!!
  • A few pinches of sea salt
  • Optional add-ins: coconut flakes, raisins, goji berries, cinnamon, vanilla bean
Directions:
  1. Melt your chocolate either in a microwave, or as detailed in this post.
  2. When the chocolate chips are completely melted, mix in your nuts until thoroughly coated.
  3. Spread mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet, and use a spatula to press it down pretty flat, so the nuts are essentially 1 layer and it's holding tightly together.
  4. Sprinkle the top with sea salt, and any additional add-ins that speak to you.
  5. Refrigerate for 4 hours.
  6. Once the chocolate is dried, cut your cooled barked into pieces, or break it using your hands for an uneven but artsy look like mine ;)
