Every year during the holidays I always whip up a batch of homemade peppermint bark and bring it to our family Christmas Eve dinner. While I still intend on making another batch of peppermint bark, I wanted to try something different. Enter Salted Coconut Almond Chocolate Bark.
Inspiration first struck when I was browsing the aisles at Trader Joe’s and stumbled upon their roasted coconut chips. I knew I wanted to do something with the coconut chips but I wasn’t sure what yet.
When I got home I found a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and some roasted almonds and salted coconut almond chocolate bark was born. One of my all-time favorite chocolate bars is Theo’s Salted Almond, so I knew I wanted to recreate something similar. The sea salt and chocolate combo is a game changer for sure. Just trust me.
This is the perfect holiday treat to make for friends, co-workers, or even just for yourself. It’s that good.
Salted Coconut Almond Chocolate Bark
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bag Trader Joe’s toasted coconut
1/2 cup almonds
Sea salt for sprinkling
Melt your chocolate chips either over the stove in a saucepan or in the microwave.
Gently pour your melted chocolate mixture into a large bowl and add your coconut and almonds, Mix until well blended.
Pour your mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread evenly. The mixture should fill most of the parchment paper.
Lightly sprinkle your bark with sea salt and place in the fridge to harden. It should harden within 1-2 hours.
Break your bark into small pieces and enjoy! This stores well in the freezer and makes a great mid-week treat.
