Instructions
 

  • Place the entire bag of chocolate chips in the glass bowl and microwave for 15 seconds. Remove the bowl and stir with the wooden spoon. Put the bowl back in the microwave for 10 seconds then stir and repeat. I needed to do 4-5 intervals of 10 seconds to get the chocolate completely melted. I know this might seem pointless and you might be asking yourself, “What difference does it make if it’s 10 or 20 seconds at a time?” The difference is liquid chocolate that solidifies and liquid chocolate that stays liquid. Be patient and do it right, wasting chocolate is a sin! When you get to the 4th interval stir the chocolate for 30 seconds. If after stirring for about 30 seconds not all the chips have melted in, microwave one more time for 5 seconds and that should do it.
  • Add the chopped almonds and salt to the melted chocolate. Mix until all of the nuts are completely covered in chocolate.
  • Scoop about 1/3 of a cup of the chocolate into each mold and use your offset spatula to spread it into every nook and cranny. Make sure the chocolate it level with the mold, not overflowing and not below. This will give you a more even bar. If you have chocolate left over after filling 3 molds, but it in the 4th one to make a partial bar. Don't waste the chocolate, it's a sin. 
  • Move all the molds to a cookie sheet and place in the freezer or fridge for about 15 - 20 mins. After the chocolate has hardened, turn the molds upside down and gently peel the mold off of the bar. 
  • If the bars last long enough to be stored, store them in a plastic baggy in the fridge or freezer.
