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.
