Today I’d like to share one of my favourite winter treat recipes with you: Chocolate Almonds.
Here’s how you do it:
Take 600g of almonds, scatter them over a baking tin and evenly cover them with sugar powder. Bake at 160°C for about 45 minutes (or until the sugar has melted) and let cool afterwards.
Heat 200g of milk chocolate in a bain-marie. While it’s melting away, sift 200g sugar powder (and have more at hand, just in case) into a bowl with a lid (that part is important, but a large plate will do, too, if nothing is at hand).
When the chocolate is done spice it up with ground cinnamon and coriander and mix in the almonds until they are evenly covered in molten chocolate.
Pour the almonds into the bowl of sugar powder, close the lid and shake until they’re covered with sugar. You can do this in more than one step if your bowl isn’t big enough, and you might have to refill the sugar at some point.
Let the almonds cool, and then give them away. Or eat them yourself. Definitely eat them yourself.
This recipe proved to be incredibly popular with my family (including me) and I already had to send it to both of my parents for seconds.
The original recipe is from here (German), and the picture is, as always, by me.
