Dark Chocolate Bark with Almonds & Coconut

October 31, 2018

Author Notes: 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
