What Is Chocolate Almond Bark? 

A popular treat for special occasions and holidays, chocolate almond bark is a dessert made from melted chocolate combined with sliced or chopped almonds. The mixture is spread out on a sheet pan and set aside or placed in the fridge to set. 

Once fully cooled, it sets into a hard, crunchy sheet. This sheet is then broken up into pieces for a grab-and-go option perfect for adding to holiday platters, wrapping up in baggies, or storing in an airtight container. 

Is Almond Bark the Same as Melting Chocolate? 

Before we explain, it’s important to note that almond bark is a dessert made from chocolate, and many people use chocolate bark to do so. However, chocolate bark and almond bark are not the same. 

That said, chocolate bark, also known as confectionery or summer coating, is a type of artificial chocolate made from vegetable fats. Meanwhile, melting chocolate, or dipping chocolate, is made with real cocoa and tempered in a way that makes it easy to melt and work with. 

Is Almond Bark Vegan? 

It depends on the recipe! Some almond bark is and some isn’t. 

To make this coconut chocolate almond bark recipe vegan, simply opt for vegan chocolate, and you’ll be set!

Why You’ll Be Craving This Coconut Chocolate Bark 

We love classic almond bark recipes featuring thick slabs of almond bark chocolate and lots and lots of nuts. However, for this coconut bark, we took the traditional almond bark recipe and gave it a bit of a twist. 

In our version, you’ll find less than ten simple ingredients including real, luscious chocolate. In addition, it: 

  • Requires minimal prep time
  • Has a total time of under 30 minutes
  • Can easily be adjusted to suit your preferences and needs. 
  • Features a unique combination of tastes and textures for a dessert that’s crisp, chewy, sweet, and salty all at once! 

Ingredients You’ll Need

If you’re always baking like us, chances are you already have everything you need for this almond bark recipe. But take the time to double-check the ingredients below, just to be sure. 

  • Almonds – We recommend using raw almonds. Opt for whole, chopped, or slivered varieties, depending on whichever texture you like best. 
  • Shredded Coconut – Unsweetened shredded coconut flakes toast to golden perfection in the oven, adding a soft sweetness and satisfyingly chewy texture. 
  • Dark Chocolate Chunks – These melt down in the oven, holding the chocolate almond bark together. 
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – This helps combine the ingredients, creating a rich flavor and eliminating the need to melt the chocolate ahead of time. 
  • Salt – Just a pinch helps enhance the rest of the ingredients. A little goes a long way! 

Optional Mix-Ins

This bark is so customizable — just mix and match any ingredients and toppings you like best. Simply adjust the amount of chocolate and condensed milk as needed to make sure your bark stays intact. 

Some of our favorite extras to add in include: 

  • Dried Cranberries or Cherries
  • Graham Cracker Pieces
  • Marshmallows
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Chia Seeds
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Sprinkles

Mix, Bake, and Eat: How to Make Easy Chocolate Almond Bark with Coconut 

Unlike typical chocolate bark recipes that require extra prep work and melting the chocolate, this version comes together in a single bowl and is super hands-off! 

So, go ahead and get the kids involved, because you won’t have to worry about chocolate ending up everywhere. 

  1. Prepare. Before you begin, preheat your oven, and line a baking dish or sheet pan with a mat or parchment paper.
  2. Combine. Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl, and stir to combine and distribute all the ingredients evenly. 
  3. Spread. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish, and use a spatula to spread it out in an even layer. 
  4. Bake. Transfer the bark to the oven, and bake until the chocolate has melted and the edges are slightly golden. Be careful not to let it burn! 
  5. Cool. Remove the dish from the oven, and set it aside to cool and set. If you’re in a hurry, you can transfer the dessert to the fridge to speed up the process. Just note that doing so can impact the shine. 
  6. Serve. Once the chocolate has hardened, break the chocolate almond bark into pieces as big or small as you want, and dig in!

How to Cut Homemade Chocolate Almond Bark

Part of the fun of this bark is that it isn’t meant to be perfect! Go ahead and just snap it into pieces with your hands. 

If you really want, you can slice it with a sharp knife. But don’t worry if it doesn’t turn out perfectly.

Can I use a different chocolate? 

Absolutely. Anything goes with this chocolate almond bark recipe! Swap out the dark chocolate with semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate, chocolate bark, or even your favorite candy.

  1. 5 stars
    Made your Coconut Chocolate Almond bark as something sweet for the Super Bowl party. Added some sunflower seeds and dried tart cherries. It was delicious. Will hide some to have with my Espresso tomorrow morning.

  2. So yummy. Love this recipe! Should the container for the bark be kept in the fridge or can it sit out?

  3. Can you use chocolate chips…one cup doesn’t seem like enough. If you seen chocolate chips, how many would you use?

  4. Hello .. I can’t seem to get my almond coconut bark to be crispy 🤷‍♀️after cooling it seems more chewy .. up the temp ? Cook longer? Kind of tacky gooey…any suggestions?

    1. It’s most likely that the chocolate wasn’t heated at a high enough temp for the chocolate to temper!
