Makes: 1 pound
Chilling Time: 1 hr
Cooking Time: 2 min
What You'll Need:
2 cups (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted (see Tip)
1/3 cup (2 ounces) white baking chips
What To Do:
1.In a medium microwaveable bowl, microwave milk chocolate chips with shortening on high power 1 to 2 minutes, stirring often, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in almonds.
2. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray. Pour in mixture.
3.Place white baking chips in a heavy-duty resealable plastic storage bag and microwave on high power about 45 seconds, or until chips are melted. Knead chips until smooth. Snip a tiny bit off a corner of the bag and drizzle white chocolate over milk chocolate in pan. Using a knife, swirl white chocolate through milk chocolate.
4.Chill about 1 hour, or until set. Remove foil, gently place almond bark on a cutting board, and cut into pieces with a knife.
•To toast the almonds, place them on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 3 to 5 minutes, or just until golden. Watch them carefully to avoid burning.
•This makes a sweet gift, and so do our Cherry Cordials!
