This guilt free salted almond and dark chocolate bark is the perfect dessert after dinner. Completely gluten free and vegan!
There is something about chocolate that tastes so much better when its not making you feel guilty with each bite. I am in love with this recipe which is why this is my second variation of it! If you love this one make sure to check out my Pumpkin Seed Dark Chocolate Bark.. because it is just as delicious. Promise!
The best part about his chocolate is that it is completely dairy free and preservatives free. Oh and very easy to whip up, but you need to freeze it until hard.. I usually leave it in the freezer over night. make sure you make a big batch of this chocolate or you will regret it… I speak from experience…
This recipe is super versatile and I have seen so many awesome recipes with unique ingredients such as dried fruit, mint leaves or pretzels.
I mean you could probably get away with hiding vegetables in it! Haha!
Speaking of being sneaky about veggies…
The other night I made a big batch of brussel sprouts. Fun fact – brussel sprouts are one of my favourite veggies .. but they are one of Dylan’s least favourite. So I thought that if I made a cheese sauce and drenched it over top of the sprouts he would eat them.. and you know what he did instead? He dunked his bread into the cheese sauce and literally licked the cheese off the brussel sprouts and left all of the sprouts on his plate.. Please someone tell me how I can get a 28 year old to consume his greens!
Anyways enough about veggies, lets jump into this chocolate recipe!
Enjoy this Salted Almond Dark Chocolate Bark recipe 🙂
