Ingredients

16 oz. dark chocolate
1¼ cup raw almonds

Directions

  1. Line a 9-inch, square baking pan with aluminum foil, overlapping the edges of the pan.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, toast almonds until they become fragrant and have some brown spots, shaking the pan every few minutes to prevent burning, about 8 minutes.
  3. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water. When chocolate has melted, stir in 1 cup of the toasted almonds, reserving the rest. Pour melted chocolate and almond mixture into prepared pan and smooth with a spatula.
  4. Sprinkle the top of the chocolate with the remaining almonds. Set aside until firm, about 1½ to 2 hours.
  5. After chocolate is firm, lift out of pan and break into pieces.
  6. Store at room temperature.
