  • Melt chocolate in top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides to avoid scorching, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; pour in almonds and stir until evenly coated.

  • Chill until set, about 10 minutes.

You can make these chocolates in silicone molds if desired.

Doesn't get much easier than this. I sprayed an empty ice cube tray with cooking spray. Easy removal - twist and pop out. I would think a mini muffin tin would also work, too. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Rock on!! How can you go wrong with dark chocolate and toasted almonds? You can't. Period. PS. I suggest using moulds. I tried with and without and freeform just made a mess. Read More

Simple and delicious! I LOVED the flavor of the roasted almonds with the chocolate (I used milk chocolate b/c that's all I had on hand). This is going into my regular candy rotation and I could totally see adding some coconut to this as well...a definite keeper YUM!!!!! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I used 1/4c walnuts, 1/4c raisins, and added a few shakes of salt--VERY good. However, as I'm going for more of a "chocolate-covered" type of treat, I will try it again with half the chocolate. Oh! I also just put the chocolate chips (minis) in a glass bowl in the microwave--30 seconds on high, stir, 30 seconds on high, then stir until completely melted. Read More

Wow what a good recipe - so easy and delicious. I didn't have the dark chocolate required so I used what I had which was a mix of pure chocolate baking squares: bittersweet semi-sweet and unsweetened. I waited a few minutes for the mixture to cool slightly so that they would keep a nice shape on the waxed paper. The only change I'd make next time is to increase the ratio of almonds to chocolate as the last few flattened out more because they had less nuts in them. They made a nice hostess gift; I will surely make these again. Read More
