Easter almonds…


I realize that I’ve a few days off but I can’t believe it… Easter arrives as a bless after so many crazy weeks.
I forget the watch. I own my time. The day lasts forever…


Chocolate truffle almonds

150 g dark chocolate, chopped
100 g cream
36 almonds

Pre-heat the oven to 160ºC.
Spread the almonds on a baking sheet.
Roast until golden brown.
Remove from oven and let them cool down.

Dark chocolate truffle:

Place the chocolate in a bowl.
Bring the cream to boil and pour over the chocolate stirring constantly.
Cover the bowl with wrap film and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight).
With greased hands coat the almonds with the truffle mixture and refrigerate until firm.
Gently roll each truffle in cocoa or icing sugar to coat.
Refrigerate until serving time.

    I would love to try these.
    I made your coconut bars, they come out perfectly. Although I made more of a truffle and topped them with a salty almond.
