Ingredients
  

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup dark baking chocolate or chocolate chips (choose a good quality baking chocolate with 60 – 70% cocoa solids)
  • ½ cup almonds, chopped into chunks (the pieces should not be finely chopped but instead should have a bite to them)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • Sea salt (for sprinkling)

Instructions
 

  • Toast the almonds in a skillet (over medium heat), stirring regularly to ensure that they don’t burn Remove from heat once they’ve started to brown; set aside.
  • Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate: place a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (be careful to ensure the base of the bowl is not touching the water). Add the chopped chocolate/ chocolate chips to the bowl and stir regularly (scraping down from the sides as needed) until the chocolate has melted. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Once the chocolate has cooled down a bit, add the vanilla and fold in the almonds until they’re evenly mixed and completely coated in chocolate.
  • Scoop out the almond-chocolate mixture in spoonfuls, pouring them into whichever moulds you have at hand. I used silicone muffin moulds, but an empty ice cube tray could also work. Alternatively, you could scoop it out onto a plate lined with grease-proof/ waxed paper or aluminium foil. Just note that this method can get a little bit messy!
  • Pop the mould/ plate into the fridge for a couple of hours until firm and set. Store refrigerated in an airtight container; or alternatively, you can also wrap each one individually in foil if you plan on gifting someone a batch!
