Dark Chocolate Almonds



My favorite nut just got healthier and more delicious than ever with a gentle ,smooth decadent chocolate coating.My initial plan was to use cocoa powder,but some how the recipe never turned out right ,then I got the idea of using Dark chocolate which magically coats the almonds to make this whole new healthy snack.
Remember there is Chocolate and then there is Healthy Dark chocolate with more than 60% cocoa,in other words check the label of the brand you buy,go for the one with lower sugar and more concentrated cocoa,the power house of anti-oxidants(I personally prefer the Ghirardelli brand)

A little effortful task,coating almonds one at a time,but its all worth it.


Recipe : Dark Chocolate Almonds

Ingredients
30-40 (about 2 cups) raw almonds
1 cup Dark chocolate chips(with at least 60% cocoa,I use Ghirardelli)

Method
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in microwave until glossy and smooth.
Dip one almond at a time in to the warm chocolate and lay on a parchment paper.You may have to melt the chocolate again if it starts to set.Let the almonds cool completely about an hour or lesser depending on room temperature. Transfer to a clean air tight container,if at all there are any left overs,most likely not.

Very interesting and yummy! But I am not sure my kids will like chocolate flavour. I liked the one at divine taste and this one is equally beautiful.
