Easy Almond Bark – 5 Simple Ingredients

I’ve always had a wicked sweet tooth. Eating healthier has required me to find better options to tame and satisfy my cravings for sweets. I have found that if I keep a couple of good options around, I’m less likely to get off track and eat something with no nutritional value.

One of my favorite treats to keep on hand is almond bark. My recipe is a result of tweaking a few different recipes to get something that works for me.

It satisfies both a chocolate craving and a crunchy craving. I like that it is lightly sweet, just enough to make your sweet tooth happy but not so sweet that it triggers a need for more sweets. And it is super easy to whip together.
