Chocolate Almond Bark

A year of Christmas baking would not be complete without some chocolate almond bark. A snap to make, but always well received, almond bark is something I always like to keep on hand during the holidays. You never know when there will be a pop in visit from friends and I like to be prepared and ready to bring out a plate of sweets. Whenever I make chocolate bark, I usually make two different kinds. So, be prepared for another recipe tomorrow of a different kind of bark. There is a sneak peak of it in the picture below!
