How to Make Almond Bark


Almond bark is a type of sheet candy made with chocolate and almonds or almond flavoring. Traditionally, there are two different types of almond bark--milk chocolate and white chocolate. However, you can use other ingredients to spice up the taste, if desired. This method yields about 1½ lbs. of white chocolate or milk chocolate almond bark. Use whichever you have on hand or the one you most prefer.

Things You'll Need

  • Whole almonds
  • Cookie sheet
  • White or milk chocolate chips
  • Butter
  • Microwave-safe dish
  • Parchment or wax paper
  • Rubber spatula
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread 1 cup of whole almonds in a single layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Place the cookie sheet in the preheated oven, and bake the almonds for five to 10 minutes or until slightly toasted. Remove from the oven and set aside.

  • Place 1 lb. of white or milk chocolate chips and 1 tbsp. of butter in a large microwave-safe dish. Microwave on high for two to three minutes or until melted.

  • Stir the toasted almonds into the melted chocolate mixture. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper.

  • Pour the almond bark mixture onto the paper-lined pan, and spread to the desired thickness using a rubber spatula. Make it as thick as you like, but as a general rule, about ¼ inch is ideal.

  • Place the almond bark in the refrigerator for one to two hours or until set. Break into approximately 2-inch square pieces with your hands. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to one week before discarding.

Tips & Warnings

  • For a change of pace, try adding ½ white or milk chocolate chips and ½ butterscotch chips instead of all chocolate. Add a few drops of vanilla or almond extract to the melted chocolate for added flavor, if desired.
