Almond Chocolate Bark

It really is impossible to find an easier recipe than this almond bark. All you need do is melt a bar of fine Belgian chocolate (100grams/3.4 ounces) and mix in plenty of roasted sliced almonds (at least a cup or more). 

-Using a double boiler or if you do not have a double boiler; take a small saucepan or tempered glass mixing bowl that will fit into a larger saucepan.  
-Fill the larger pot with enough tap water to provide heat but not touch the bottom of the saucepan
(or  glass bowl)
-Heat the water on the stove top until it begins to simmer. Turn off the heat.
-Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in the small saucepan (or glass bowl)
-Place the smaller saucepan (or glass bowl)  in the larger saucepan.
-When the chocolate begins to melt, start stirring gently with a wooden spoon until the chocolate is melted.
-Remove from the stove top. Wipe off the water from the bottom of the saucepan containing the chocolate. Be careful not to allow any water to get on the chocolate.
-Stir in the roasted almond slices and coat with the melted chocolate.
-Spread on a parchment lined cookie tray and allow to harden.
-If desired, melt white Belgian chocolate and drizzle on the almond bark.
