Salty & Sweet Buttery Bark

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c cacao butter chunks (3 1/2 oz or 100 g)*
  • 1/4 c raw cacao powder (1 oz)**
  • 2 1/2 T Swerve Granular (2 T if you want it less sweet and more of a “dark” chocolate ~ but warning, Salty Sweet is awesome!)
  • 2 T butter (I used KerryGold unsalted… yum!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla (I used flavouring here without alcohol, but extract is just fine too)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 c crushed almonds

*You can use coconut oil instead, but cacao butter tastes so much better!

**You can use cocoa powder instead of cacao powder. You can also use around 4 1/2 oz (125 g) of unsweetened chocolate instead of the cacao butter and cacao powder, but it won’t quite taste the same.

Method:

  1. Place all ingredients, except nuts, in order into a pan over low heat.
  2. When melted, mix to incorporate well.
  3. Place wax paper/parchment paper/clear film in a container.
  4. Sprinkle most of the nuts onto the prepared container.
  5. Pour in the chocolate mixture.
  6. Spread well so the mixture is even.
  7. Top with the rest of the nuts.
  8. Refrigerate for a couple of hours. You can also keep these in the freezer, but it’s perfectly buttery out of the fridge.
  9. Enjoy.

We love this at our house! Hope you do too!

NOTE:

Erythritol, which is also the main ingredient in Swerve, is a sugar alcohol. It is not a real sugar and our bodies lack the ability to break it down. Because of this, we can safely NOT include the sugar alcohol amount in our overall carbohydrate count. The net carbs in this recipe without Swerve or Erythritol would be around 2 g.
