White Toasted Almond Bark with Sea Salt

White Toasted Almond Bark with Sea Salt is one of my personal favorite recipes on the blog. This easy homemade candy features deeply toasted almonds embedded in creamy white chocolate ~ the combination is unbelievable, you have to try it for yourself!

A stack of toasted almond bark

Chocolate bark recipes are some of the easiest out there, and every year I’m freshly amazed that so little effort produces such a delicious result. You can’t really go wrong with this simple project, as long as you use good quality ingredients. Barks are quicker to make, keep longer, and ship better than cookies. I think they are a holiday no-brainer. This one involves dark roasted almonds encased in creamy white chocolate and then dusted with sea salt. What sets this bark apart is the extra deep roasted almonds. They will be quite brown and when you bite into them they are extra crisp and super flavorful. I first discovered these almonds at a cozy Italian restaurant my husband and I used to go to when we were looking for a little romance… it was so many years ago I can’t even remember the name. They set out little bowls of these nuts on the table the minute you arrived. They were just plain almonds, no salt or oil added, but they were roasted to a dark rich brown, and they were addictive.

When you embed these almonds in good quality white chocolate and shower it with a little sea salt,  you won’t know what to do with yourself. Do what I did and give some of it away, it makes a distinctive gift for the holidays.

White Toasted Almond Bark with Sea Salt

Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Author Sue Moran


  • 1 cup whole raw almonds skin on
  • 20 oz white chocolate chips or any good white chocolate chopped in pieces
  • 1 Tbsp butter or coconut oil
  • sea salt ground fairly fine


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Put the nuts on a baking sheet and toast for about 20 minutes. Give the pan a shake from time to time, and watch carefully for the last 5 minutes. You want the almonds to get darkly roasted, but not burnt. Set the pan aside to let the nuts cool on the pan.
  • Line a fresh baking sheet with a silpat mat, parchment paper, or non stick foil.
  • Put the white chocolate and the butter or oil in a glass microwave safe bowl and heat on 50% power for a minute. Keep heating, checking, and stirring until the chocolate is melted. If you are using chips they won’t look melted until you stir them.
  • When the chocolate is melted and smooth, add in the almonds and quickly spread out the mixture on the lined baking sheet.
  • Dust the warm chocolate with sea salt, being careful to get it evenly distributed across the bark.
  • Set the pan in the refrigerator to cool until fully set, at least an hour.
  • Break apart the bark into whatever size pieces you choose.
  • Try not to eat it all before you can give some of it away.

Cook’s notes

  • If you have trouble melting chocolate in the microwave, you can always do it in a double boiler. Set a bowl or pan over another pan of gently simmering water and slowly melt the chocolate while stirring.

    I have made this for the last couple of years, and it is always a favorite. When I purchased my almonds and chocolate this year, I inadvertently grabbed sliced almonds. So rather than make a trip to the grocery, I toasted those slices in a skillet and used them. Still absolutely delicious.

      Interesting, did you toast them nice and dark, too? I may have to try this.

      I think 2 weeks would work, chocolate really keeps a long time, but I would keep it in the refrigerator. I hope you love it as much as I do Mary, and be sure to toast those almonds really well 🙂

    oh my gosh, this sounds so easy and delectable! I’m doing this for our neighbor gifts for Christmas. Would throwing on crushed peppermint be too much?? How much does this generally make – a medium sized cookie pan?

      It makes a little less than a cookie sheet, Elisabeth, but you can double the recipe. To be honest, I don’t think peppermint would be good in this bark, but that’s just my opinion. You can definitely try it if it sounds good to you!
