Almond Joy Chocolate Bark

I’m slightly obsessed with Mounds and Almond Joy this week.  I’ve been making tons of coconut, chocolate and almond recipes the last few days.

So far, this one for gluten free Almond Joy Chocolate Bark is my family’s favorite.  I like the way the toasted coconut adds a tiny crunch to the bigger crunch of the almonds, all of it enrobed in delicious dark chocolate, of course.  Go ahead and try some, see for yourself!

  1. Love this idea. So simple and really addicting.

    I used unsweetened baking chocolate and then added my own choice of sweetener. I chose granulated coconut crystal sugar. It ended up making the bark sand like in texture. Still fabulous, I mean really great you can’t go wrong with Elana’s ideas, my version was just not smooth and creamy like the masters creation. This sweetener is my sweetener of choice, second would be honey. Was wondering if anyone has tried either with an unsweetened chocolate, and if you were successful. Any suggestions on making the CC more smooth than grainy? Perhaps cook it down like a syrup? Then add it? Thanks!

  2. hello Elena!

    I just wanted to say I love your blog! You do an amazing job. I’m waiting to get off my cleanse ive been doing for about 15 days, in my free time ive been writting down some of your recipes and I’m eager to try them! I’m not celiac, but I do have a sensitivity to gluten that ive ignored and I really want to focus on being healthy and eat gluten free as much as possible.
    ive been craving zucchini bread lately ( amung pretty much everything while cleansing) do you have a recipe?!

    Take Care!

  3. I love your website and I am thankful for it, i use it all the time to cook dessert for my family. We were never disappointed and everything we baked was a success.
    Thank you

  4. This looks really good. I almost always use carob instead of chocolate, so I’m going to substitute carob chips for the chocolate, but I’m all over anything that is made with almonds and coconut, yum!
