  • Lily’s Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips – The best low carb chocolate ever. You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or semi-sweet chocolate. Lily’s has really raised the bar with their ingredients to make a wide variety of low carb candy.
  • Natural peanut butter – Check for added sugar and make certain it’s NOT listed on the ingredients. 
  • Coconut oil – Love using this healthy fat. 
  • Almonds – I like using slivered almonds as they’re easier to chew. 
  • Pecans – Toast them slightly for a better flavor. 
  • Unsweetened coconut– Optional and totally up to you to add or not.

These chocolate keto-friendly candies make incredibly delicious sweet treats to curb all your cravings for sweets. This low carb candy is not dairy-free due to the semi-sweet chocolate chips. It should be gluten-free, but I always suggest checking every products ingredients you use in your kitchen because added gluten can vary from brand to brand, or there may be cross-contamination.

Pecan Toasting Tips

Toasting the pecans brings out a fantastic flavor and crunch, making this Keto Easy Almond Bark recipe even tastier. If you don’t like pecans feel free to leave them out. This is one of those recipes that can be altered easily without compromising taste.


I would suggest storing them in the fridge for up to 5 days to keep them from becoming soft. 


Even though this simple almond bark recipe is easy and fun to make for yourself, package up a few and share them with your family and friends who follow a low carb lifestyle. This dessert is a great gift idea, too! Make sure to leave a note to keep them refrigerated.

Some of the sugar-free sweeteners used in store-bought candy may be maltitol, erythritol, xylitol, monk fruit, stevia, and allulose name a few sugar substitute options.

  1. Made Choco Almond Bark couple wks ago. Added pumpkin seeds, whole almonds, diced strawberries & sprinkle some sugar free coconut, twas tres nums 😋. Next time try roasting the seeds & almonds together n the oven.

    1. The number of servings is listed near the top left of the recipe card. I just divide my dish evenly by the number of servings.

  2. Can I use unsweetened chocolate bars and add sweetener? If so, how much sweetener do you think I would need to add? Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Patricia! I’ve only prepared the recipe as is, so I am not sure the outcome with unsweetened chocolate bars or the sweetener measurement. If you decided to give it a try, I’d just taste taste and add more sweetener as needed.

  3. 5 stars
    Excellent and very easy. The key is to get the sugar-free stevia sweetened chocolate bits. I didn’t use any peanut butter and bought already roasted almonds. This is going to be a regular treat from now on.

  4. Made this tonight… with a twist (hope you don’t mind 😉 Buffalo sauce and grilled chicken for a more hearty Buffalo Chicken Mac’n Cheese. Great recipe!

  5. Hi Kasey I was just wondering what your thoughts are on sugar free Hershey’s choc. chips? I’m not a fan of Libbys choc chips (I’m a bit picky) ant thoughts are appreciated thank you!

    1. If you scroll to the bottom of the post you’ll find the recipe in the recipe card. There is also a “jump to” recipe button at the top of every post.

  6. Hi Kasey,
    What is the weight of the Choco chips 9oz?
    It just says ‘bag’

    Thanks for sharing , looking forward to making the recipe.

  7. I enjoyed the recipe as is so much, I improvised next time, I used the Lily’s white chocolate chips, skipped the peanut butter, added macadamia nuts and low sugar craisins, yummmmmmm.

    1. Nothing. Your hands are warm so it will begin to melt the alond bark. Perhaps try just picking up a small amount at a time.

  8. 3 stars
    I just made this for my husband for a Christmas present, I normally do cocoa dusted almonds so thought this would make a good alternative. I’m gutted as it hasn’t set properly, if I take it out of the fridge it goes soft again. It does, however, taste delicious so I’m going to wrap it in the Tupperware and keep it in the fridge instead of the tin I’d bought. Such a shame it didn’t quite work out but could have been worse.

    1. In the post, I included the following info in regards how to store the almond bark.

      I would suggest storing in the fridge for up to 5 days to keep them from becoming soft.

    2. 5 stars
      I have made this quite often and we really love it. I just wanted to come back and share that I made it today with Lily’s Pumpkin Spice chips and what a great treat! Everything else is the same just subbed the pumpkin spice chips for the chocolate. I only used pecans as well. I wish I could share a pic with you.
