Smoky Almond Chocolate Bark
8 ounces Nestlé Toll House Dark Chocolate Baking Bar, broken into small pieces
1/2 cup coarsely chopped smoke-flavored almonds, divided
1/8 teaspoon sea salt (preferably large crystal)
Line 8-inch baking pan with wax paper.
In small, microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate pieces, uncovered, on high (100 percent) power for 45 seconds. Remove and stir. If pieces retain some of their original shape, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted. Stir in 1⁄4 cup almonds.
Pour into prepared baking pan and sprinkle with remaining almonds. Tap pan several times to spread chocolate and settle nuts. Sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm.
Remove from pan, and break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature. Yields 1⁄2 pound.
