Keeping with the theme of the week, I’m made more holiday food gifts! Today, (another snow day by the way) I made 3 kinds of dark chocolate bark; sea salt, toasted coconut, and almond. All equally delicious, and all will earn you a spot in the food gift hall of fame.
Shh! Don’t tell anyone, but this sweet treat could not be easier. It’s truly a clean recipe with just a few ingredients, most of them you’ll already have in your kitchen. I had saved the toasted coconut from another dish I made but if you need to toast your unsweetened coconut, click here to learn how. I bought a bag of slivered almonds from the bulk food area at my grocery store and had the coarse sea salt already in my pantry.
The hardest part about this recipe is waiting for it to cool so you can eat it!
Local Ingredient: So, this is the first time I’ve not been able to find a local ingredient for a recipe for the My Clean Kitchen site. Shopping local can be really hard. I think it’s important to remember to always think local. If you can’t find a locally grown or produced ingredient, you can still shop at a locally owned store. I bought the chocolate for this recipe from a local health food store that sells non-gmo organic products. So, even though it wasn’t made or grown around here I can at least know that I supported a locally owned small business by purchasing my chocolate there.
