Why You’ll Love This Recipe? 

  • Easy To Make: The dessert is relatively easy to make. Anyone who is new to baking also can make this dessert. All elements are simple, and you can make these delicious barks in just a few minutes. 
  • Accessible Ingredients: The dessert requires only six ingredients, which are almost always present in a baking kitchen. With ingredients like butter, sugar, sea salt, vanilla essence almonds, and dark chocolate, you can prepare a dessert so yummy that you would find yourself making it repeatedly. 
  • Flavors and Textures: All the flavors and textures of this dessert are something that everyone loves. Homemade quick toffee paired with dark chocolate and almonds- it’s a combination made in heaven. The crisp toffee and crunch almonds pair well with the smooth chocolate. It’s a symphony in the mouth. 

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Butter: The quantity of butter is good enough to give a lovely buttery flavor to the toffee. When sugar and butter are heated together, the smokiness from the butter gets combined with the caramelized sugar. 
  • Castor Sugar: It is better to use castor sugar because of its size. The sugar will melt easily and evenly in the butter as compared to icing sugar or granulated table sugar. 
  • Vanilla Essence and Sea Salt: Both work as flavor enhancers for the toffee component. Vanilla eliminates the burnt flavor of sugar, while sea salt lifts the entire dessert flavor. 
  • Dark Chocolate: I have used 46.5% dark couverture chocolate by van Houten. It’s perfect for the dessert as it cuts down the sweetness from toffee, making it a beautiful pair. 
  • Almonds: The dessert is topped with Chopped almonds, so use fresh and good-quality almonds for this. 

How To Make Almond Toffee Barks

Preparation: Collect and measure all six ingredients required to make the dessert. Line a square baking sheet (baking tray with low height) using an aluminum foil. 

Melt Butter: In a heavy-bottom saucepan, take the butter and put it on low to medium heat for it to melt. Let the butter melt entirely on low heat. 

Add Sugar: Once the butter is melted, gradually add castor sugar and stir using a spatula. Keep stirring the mixture. The sugar will melt, and the mixture will start to turn amber in color. 

Add Vanilla Essence: When the mixture starts to boil, add the vanilla essence and stir it continuously. Let the mixture turn amber / light brown in color. 

Check Doneness: To check if the toffee is ready, add a few drops of toffee in water. If the toffee hardens immediately, that means it is prepared. 

Transfer Toffee into Mould: After the toffee is ready, pour it into the lined baking sheet and spread using a bent palette knife. Let the toffee semi-set at room temperature. 

Add Chopped Chocolate: Now that the toffee has set a little, sprinkle chopped dark chocolate all over the toffee. Let it sit for a few seconds, and you will see that the chocolate has started to melt. The heat from the toffee will melt the chocolate. Spread the melted chocolate over the toffee using a bent palette knife. 

Add Almonds and Salt: Lastly, add Chopped almonds and Sprinkle sea salt on top of the melted chocolate. 

Freeze: Keep the way in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to set. 

Serve: The dessert takes only 10 minutes to set, so after that, you can de-mould it from the tray and remove the aluminum foil from the bottom. Roughly break the dessert into chunks or barks and serve. 

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Be Careful When Working With Toffee.

Toffee is made of caramelized sugar, which needs particular attention when working with it. Be very careful while transferring and spreading the toffee, as the slightest drop can burn your finger. You may use gloves to be more safe. 


I have added almonds on top. However, you can go ahead and try different nuts like hazelnuts, walnuts and even dried fruits like raisins, cranberries, etc. They all will pair well with chocolate and toffee. 

How To Store Almond Toffee Barks

You can store the bark in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 weeks. 

Storing it in the freezer will increase the shelf life to up to two months.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Can I use compound chocolate instead of couverture chocolate? 

Yes, you may use dark compound chocolate. However, you must know that it will change the taste of the dessert slightly. 

Can I add cream to the toffee? 

I wanted to make hard toffee, which is why I haven’t added any milk or cream to the toffee. In case you want the toffee to be soft and chewy, you may add a little bit of cream to it.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
