Homemade Paleo Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bark

I used to work for a British company, and the top request from oversees trips was Cadbury’s Dairy-Milk Fruit and Nut Bar. 

The combination of raisins and toasted almonds in milk chocolate was a crowd favorite.  But oh, are those bars sweet! 

Dark chocolate is definitely my favorite way to enjoy chocolate.  Plus, paleo dark chocolate is easy to find and it is both dairy-free and refined sugar free!
