"Almond Bark" formula anyone?

My wife has requested a layer of Almond Bark in a recipe, but I don't really want to use that crap they sell at the grocery store if I could use some Guittard white chips and Almond Paste (I have plenty of both). And this is my professional reputation, but I have no clue where to even begin.

Im making bark this week for part of a dessert.

For my bark I will temper some dark chocolate and spread it on a baking sheet lined with a silpat.

Then top that layer with some milk chocolate.
Then the white chocolate.

Put some roast almonds in the white chocolate. Drizzle red and green candy melts, then some crushed candy cane in the melt.

Last is a craisen. Then cutout into rounds to top my cake.

Dunno if thats the kind of bark you meant but its something haha

Sounds awesome, thanks for sharing.

What I'm trying to reproduce is the insipid "almond flavored white chocolate coating"

they sell in the baking aisle at the local grocery market.

Are you referring to like a "turtle shell" type of coating? If so mix white chocolate with almond extract and coconut oil. That should get that instant hard shell coating I think you are describing.
