No Bake Coconut & Almond Bark Recipe

Brix Bark

 

One of the greatest perks of working at Brix is the never-ending supply of chocolate hanging around the office. It’s no secret that we love our chocolate (and wine) around these parts, but we also love finding new ways to enjoy Brix.

On a particularly busy work week, I found myself responsible for providing dessert for an impromptu dinner invite. Pressed for time, I scoured the pantry and ended up making a batch of this irresistible No Bake Coconut & Almond Bark.

The bark is a yummy combination of sweet and savory ingredients, combining our medium dark chocolate with crunchy almonds, creamy coconut and a hint of savory sea salt. The recipe requires just a handful of ingredients and is unbelievably quick and easy to prepare.  Best of all, it requires no baking and is sure to become one of your go-to desserts! (Tip: Swapping out the Medium Dark for our Extra Dark chocolate makes this treat vegan).

Ingredients & Instructions:

8 oz Brix Medium Dark Chocolate Bar                                          2.5 T sliced almonds

2.5 T Unsweetened shredded coconut                                           1 t sea salt

Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. On a cutting board, fracture the entire Brix bar and place in a microwaveable safe bowl. Microwave on med-high power in 45 second increments, stirring on each break until chocolate is melted (or you can melt the chocolate in a double boiler).Pour melted chocolate onto parchment paper and sprinkle with coconut and almonds, lightly pressing the almonds into the chocolate. Sprinkle with sea salt and place in freezer for 15 minutes. Remove from freezer and enjoy!
