Keto Chocolate Almond Bark Recipe

Note that you can make these even more keto (lower carbs) by leaving off the dried fruit and/or only eating 2-3 pieces!

  • About 9 ounces chocolate -- we used this kind with only 3 organic ingredients which she found at our local grocery store.
  • About 1/4 cup slivered almonds -- even better is if you prepare them like this for more nutrition but at the least, roast them in the oven for a few minutes to get them toasty and golden brown. You could use any nuts you have on hand but I like slivered almonds best.
  • About 1/3 cup dried fruit she used cherries, but cranberries, blueberries, or any dried fruit would be good.
  • Optional additions: *sea salt shredded coconut, any other ideas?


  • Melt the chocolate in a pan over top another pan of boiling water.  (Or melt in the microwave for a few seconds, but I like not using the microwave as much as possible <-- that post explains why.)  Spread onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or on a silicone mat.  Don't put directly on the cookie sheet because then you won't be able to break it up easily.  Quickly sprinkle on nuts, dried fruit, and any optional extras.  *Note that I have sea salt as an option, but once you try it, you'll have to add it every time it's so good!
  • Place the cookie sheet into the freezer or refrigerator until it hardens.  Break into small pieces and store in the fridge or freezer so it doesn't melt.


One batch makes about 58 pieces of candy bark.  Each piece is less than 2.5 grams net carbs (141 for the whole batch) or less than 3 grams total carbs (163 for the whole batch).  3 pieces feels like a big cheat with only 9 carbs total, or 7.5 carbs net!  If you leave the dried fruit off, the carbs would be even less, but the tartness of the dried fruit, just one piece in each bite, really adds a satisfying flavor.
