Ingredients

  • 400 g good-quality dark chocolate (about 14 oz) chopped
  • 300 g good-quality milk chocolate (about 10 1/2 oz) chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds toasted

Method

In heatproof bowl set over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt dark chocolate. Scrape into parchment paper–lined 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) cake pan, smoothing top. Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, in separate heatproof bowl set over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt milk chocolate. Spoon over top of dark chocolate, smoothing top. Sprinkle with almonds. Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes. Cut into shards. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 5 days.)

Tip from The Test Kitchen: To toast almonds, spread them in a single layer in a dry skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring often, until fragrant and light golden, about 5 minutes.
