After making a first batch of cookie bark I wanted to come up with more creations. They are so easy to make and I think they look different and just pretty!
I decided to go with a chocolate almond combination and at the end drizzled it with bittersweet chocolate which makes it rich but not as sweet as you think. Cookie barks can make a great Christmas gift if you place a group of them in a cellophane bag and a nice gift tag.
Heat oven to 350°F or as directed in the cookie dough package.
Cover an oven tray with sides with parchment paper. Place all cookie dough rounds on the tray and press them together so you form a big flat cookie dough rectangle on the tray.
Mash the almond slivers with a spoon (don't make them so little) and sprinkle them on the cookie dough.
Press the almonds into the dough with your fingers, leave about 1/3 of the total to decorate at the end. Place in the oven and bake for 11 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Take out and cool for about 30 minutes.
Microwave the chocolate chips 30 seconds, take out and stir. Repeat this process until is melted.
Drizzle the melted chocolate carefully with a fork on the cookie bar. Add the rest of the almonds and let stand until set.
