I am a dark chocolate lover that is for sure, and these Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Bites hit the spot every time I make them. The richness of the dark chocolate mixed with the creamy, crunchiness of the almond butter is like a dream!

These bars are so easy to throw together and make the perfect decadent treat to enjoy at any time during the day. I like to keep them stored in the freezer to keep the chocolate from melting and it also gives a bite to the bars. The cold out of the freezer bites give such a nice treat to a hot summer day! These bars can also be made with a little sprinkle of sea salt to add complexity to each bite and a contrast to the dark chocolate.
