Roasted Almond Chocolates

Share with friends and family

Chocolate is absolutely irresistable. There hardly shall  be a person who dislikes chocolates. Seeing a chocolate the child in us comes out and we forget our surroundings and happily enjoy the chocolate journey.
As kids we have had our favourite chocolate brands like Cadbury's Dairy Milk, Five star,Nestle Milkybar,Nutties,Fruit and Nut and the list is just endless.
My favourite has always been The Fruit n Nut from Cadbury's. I would just wait to bite onto the roasted almonds infused in the chocolate bar and it would be such a wonderful taste to feel the roasted almond and the melting chocolate ...aaaha...pure bliss !!!
Well,today's chocolate is loaded with roasted almonds and with every bite you can feel the flavor of the crunchy almonds.
You can make these chocolates and store them ahead of children's birthday parties or any get togethers. They definately taste better than the store bought ones, fresh and eggless as well.

©Sweet Spicy Tasty©Double Boiler
A double boiler is  a set of two pots: a large one that looks a lot like a regular saucepan and a smaller one, more shallow pan that is placed above the sauce pan. The sauce pan has hot water and the upper pot should be so placed such that the base does not touch the water but only feels the steam and melts the contents in it.Double boilers are generally used when the contents need to be melted in lower temperatures.

Chocolate Moulds (Plastic or Silicone)
Chocolate mould is used to set the chocolate.They are available in different shapes and sizes . Silicone moulds and plastic variations are widely available in the market.

200gms dark chocolate
20-30 almonds roughly chopped

In a sauce pan ,take some water and boil it .Turn off after the water starts boiling.

Keep the mould ready and fill each mould with a spoonful of the chocolate almond mixture  and tap the mould on the platform to release all the trapped air bubbles.  lean all the chocolate droplets using a tissue so that the chocolates come out clean on demould. Freeze it in the refrigerator to set for 5-8 minutes.
