And I agree about the mix of sea salt & chocolate!!! Is is heavenly!
Thanks, I just googled the Real Salt and Super Target carries it, so I will try to pick up some from there.

I've never tried the salt in the coco bark but love the mixture of salt off a potato chip eaten with an m&m. I am going to have to at least give it a shot.

When I was little, my mom would add a package of M&M's to our movie popcorn at the cinema. I've always adored the combination of salty/sweet.

I made some today and added the salt. I really like it. I used whole almonds for something different. I like to keep some in the freezer for UD's when I want something sweetish. I used a little stevia but not much.

I used to think that until I tried Chocolove Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate bars (which is always sold out in stores near me). That sea salt somehow makes chocolate taste ten times better, and it's not like I need any more convincing that chocolate is good. I keep forgetting to try and make a CO bark version of this.

re: salt. Most chocolate baked goods, chocolate ice cream, etc, all incl a pinch of salt (regular or whatever it specifically calls for). Salt heightens the flavor of chocolate (within reason) and when you're making something homemade, you should really try it with a just a wee bit.

When I make just plain whipped cream with cocoa, I always add a pinch of vanilla (which is a main flavor in "chocolate" things we enjoy) and a pinch of salt.

DH adds cinnamon, but that's another story altogether

I get this himalyan (sp) sea salt that I have to grind. It's pink and has a very deep deep, mineral flavor, not real "salty" like table salt has.

I put it in a class pyrex, I added almonds (whole and crushed), I used a mix of unrefined and refined coconut oil instead of just unrefined. It was a horrible mess and I wasn't able to break out squares at all. So disappointed.
Wow, I don't see anything that should have caused it to stick. But, is that all you used was almonds and mixed oils?

I use those tupperware things all the time and never had a problem with them sticking. The oil alone should keep that from happening!

That is true, I do add a pinch of salt to my cake icing when I make it.

This is my biggest weakness! I only allow myself 1/3 a bar per UD, but it is wonderfully yummy!

I add HWC to my cocoa/seasalt bark! I am going to try mac nuts as well.

I do the same when I get a hold of some! I wait until I'm plenty full towards the end of the day and then enjoy my 1/3 bar of complete bliss.

Ooh, macadamia nuts are fabulous in chocolate too. I've never thought of putting them in my CO bark but now I'm excited to make some! Mmm...cocoa CO bark with a little bit of macadamia nuts and hwc and a sprinkle of sea salt.

I can't remember who posted to make popcorn with coconut oil, but OMG!!!! I am hooked!!!! It is delightful! Please if you haven't tried this, you will not regret it.

It is so light and fluffy that it is pure yumminess! I spritzed it with small amount of butter and sea salt also.

I think the two together are deadly! Talk about satiety!
