Nibble on creamy dark chocolate bark from our friend, Dietitian Debbie Dishes. It’s simply made by melting dark chocolate, and adding in your favorite nut and dried fruits. These homemade treats are handy to have around, especially when you need a little pick me up.
Dark Chocolate Almond Bark
- 5 ounces dark chocolate (certified gluten-free or vegan if necessary)
- 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened flaked coconut

Melt chocolate on the stove using a bowl fitted over a saucepan of gently boiling water or a double boiler.
Pour melted chocolate onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Spread out until about 1/8-inch thick.
Sprinkle chocolate with apricots, almonds, coconut and salt. Chill in the fridge or freezer until hardened. Break apart and enjoy!
