|Yes, I know this looks like sludge - but that's because it's huge chunks of almonds and French sea salt surrounded by a layer of molten and super dark chocolate.|
I needed a big dose of something special last Friday, and I tried to fulfill this craving in a somewhat responsible but decadent manner. In my head, I was chanelling a huge bar of Cadbury's Milk Chocolate and Nut candy. Gosh, in pre-low carb days I could eat one of those things in 3 minutes flat.
In making my own chocolate candy bark, I was able to control the sugar content (very low) and pump up the volume with high-protein and good-for-you almonds. I also chopped up the remainder and used it to make low-carb and dairy-free ice cream.
