If Almond Joy candies taught me anything, it's that coconut, almonds, and chocolate work really well together. This recipe is a homemade ode. I like using chopped almonds versus sliced for their chunkier texture, but either will work. —Emma Laperruque
chopped (not sliced) almonds, lightly toasted and cooled
flaky salt, to taste
In This Recipe
Line a rimmed sheet pan with parchment.
Melt the chocolate in a microwave or double boiler. Pour the chocolate onto the lined sheet tray and use an offset spatula to spread out evenly, filling the whole pan. Evenly sprinkle the toppings on top.
Pop in the fridge or freezer until totally firm, about 1 hour. Break into pieces.
