Ingredients

2 cups unsalted sliced almonds

1 teaspoon sea salt 

1/2 teaspoon maple syrup or honey 

1/3 cup finely chopped dark chocolate 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spread out the almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven until light brown, about 15 minutes, shaking the baking sheet every 5 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Add the almonds to a food processor and process for 5 minutes, scraping down the sides as needed (the almonds should start to clump together). Continue to process for another 5 minutes, scraping down the sides again halfway through. Add the sea salt and maple syrup, and mix until combined. Add the chocolate in two batches, processing until smooth. Transfer to a Mason jar. Store either at room temperature or in the fridge.
