Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Vanilla Almond Bark
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Teaspoon Salt
  • 16 Ounces Roasted Almonds
  • 1 Cup Crushed Peppermint Candies, Divided

Instructions

  • Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place the almond bark on a large cutting board and chop into chunks.
  • Fill a medium-sized saucepan with one inch of water and bring to a simmer over low heat.
  • Place a tightly fitting, heatproof bowl on top of the saucepan.
  • Add the chocolate to the bowl and allow the chocolate to melt while stirring occasionally until completely smooth.
  • Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the salt and vanilla extract. Then, stir in the roasted almonds and half of the crushed peppermints.
  • ALTERNATELY: Place the almond bark in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the bark in 5-second intervals, stirring in between just until melted.
  • Spoon the clusters onto the prepared baking sheet in mounds of whatever size you prefer.
  • Sprinkle the remaining crushed peppermints over the top.
  • Allow the chocolate to set completely then remove the clusters to an airtight container and store for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

NOTE:  This recipe will make anywhere from 12-20 clusters depending on what size you make them.
