Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Spread almonds in a large skillet; toast over medium heat until starting to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour almonds into a bowl.

  1. This recipe is fast and so easy. Plus SO DELICIOUS! We even mixed semi-sweet and milk chocolate it was still great. We just keep in fridge! Yum.
  2. Love almonds and dark chocolate. But my mind is going all over the place!!! Heath chips, coconut, walnuts, mixtures of these, layering, OMG, the possibilities are endless!

  4. 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.

  5. Loved it
  6. 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.

  7. 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!
  8. 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.:)
  9. 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.
