How to Melt Almond Bark

There are a few different methods to easily melt the White Almond Bark:

 

1. Melt in Microwave

This is definitely the easiest option.

  1. For best results, cut your almond bark into small chunks.
  2. Place your almond bark in a microwave-safe bowl. It is important that the bowl be microwave-safe or else it might shatter while cooking.
  3. Heat the bark for 30 seconds. When the time is up, take the bowl out (be careful, it may be hot), stir the bark, and then put it back in the microwave. Continue to >microwave for 30 seconds, intervals stirring in between each time. Do this until the chocolate is nice and smooth. Be careful not to microwave longer than 30 seconds at a time because almond bark burns easily.

2. Use a Double Boiler

Using a double boiler to melt almond bark helps to ensure that your chocolate does not burn while you are melting it because you are heating it indirectly through the use of both pans.

  1. Chop your almond bark into small pieces if it isn’t already in small disks. It is easier to melt almond bark when it has been cut into smaller pieces. 
  2. Boil a small amount of water in a saucepan.
  3. Place the chocolate in a large glass bowl.
  4. Set the bowl on top of the saucepan with the boiling water underneath it. Stir the chocolate until melted and smooth.

    • If children are helping, allow coated ghosts to cool a bit before allowing the kiddies to place the mini-chocolate-chip eyes on each figure.
