(Dairy-Free) Almond Joy Chocolate Bark

If I did something right this post contains affiliate links.

I’m not sure that you can imagine my pleasure when I recreated the yummy store-bought Almond Joy candy bar with a dairy-free Almond Joy Chocolate Bark that tastes JUST like (if not BETTER) an Almond Joy.  I was inspired by Pinterest and tried a few recipes, I then tweaked them choosing what I did and didn’t  like and ended up with an amazingly delicious Almond Joy Chocolate Bark.  This chocolate bark takes less than 15 minutes to put together, the hard part is waiting for it to chill!

Not only is Almond Joy Chocolate Bark delicious it can change your entire day around.  You don’t believe me?  Here is my story….

Today was not one of my favorite days.  Alex and Audrey slept horribly last night resulting in two tired and cranky kids today.  We were able to enjoy a slow-paced chill morning but needed to venture out in the afternoon.  I had the car packed ready for smooth errand running followed by Alex’s fencing class.

I volunteered to drive a friend home after fencing so I felt it necessary to remove the embarrassing amount of sand and crumbs that had accumulated in our truck prior to running our errands.  After vacuuming the car we were to go to the library, post office, a friend’s house, then finally fencing.  Well, we never made it past stop one.   Are you ready for this?  While at the car wash I vacuumed up my car keys.  Really, who does this??? Uh, me.

I won’t bore you with the (hot & chaotic) details about how we got home, how we got into the house, and how we got our truck back but I want you to know that our day did get better.  How could it, you may be asking?  My answer is simply love and chocolate bark.  We walked in the house hot and sweaty, grabbed the freshly made batch of Almond Joy Chocolate Bark, then jumped in the pool to laugh and play (how could we not?!?).  All was right in our world.

So, now that you know that this chocolate bark is delicious AND can change your day are you ready to make some of your own?  Here you go!  (You can print this recipe at the bottom of the post)

What you need:

What you do:

  • Melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler. To do this, simmer 1/2 inch of water in a small saucepan on the stove top. Place a glass bowl with the chocolate chips in it on top of the sauce pan.

  • Once the chips have melted, stir in the coconut oil.

  • Your chocolate mix will be nice and creamy (and delicious!).

  • I typically line a cookie sheet with parchment paper but I was out so I used wax paper (over foil so you cannot see how badly I need new sheets).  Once the mixture is creamy pour it onto your lined sheet and spread until the mixture is about 1/4 inch thick.  Then sprinkle with coconut and almonds.  This is Audrey’s favorite part!

  • This step it optional, but I take my wooden spoon and gently mix it all together so there are pieces of almonds and coconut inside the chocolate.

  • Stick your sheet full of deliciousness into the fridge or freezer until it hardens then separate it from your paper and break into mouth-watering pieces.
