A tasty snack.
For the past few weeks I’ve been enjoying snacking on salted chocolate covered almonds, as I feel like they are the perfect pick me up for when you are craving something sweet, but they are small enough that you can just grab a few and be satisfied with how delicious they are.
I can only find these almonds (pre-made) in a particular store, so if I’m not nearby I cannot get the exact ones I like, so I figured I could try to recreate them.
I’m sure this snack is not new to most of you, but I can say I had never had chocolate almonds before and only now realised how great they taste!
To make mine slightly healthier, I opted for some Vegó chocolate, which is vegan, just so even if I indulge in these my stomach won’t pay the consequences.
Start by melting the chocolate (I used 10 vegolino ‘bricks’ for this recipe).
Once it was all soft, I added half a teaspoon of salt (adjust to taste, but I found this to be a pretty good mix for me).
Bathe the almonds in the salted chocolate and let dry in oven paper, overnight.
I put mine in the fridge as we are experiencing a heat wave in the UK, so as I took them out they looked a bit ‘wet’, but they were totally ready to be eaten, and tasted amazing (you can’t really fail!).
I placed mine in a jar, storing them in a cool place.
Have you tried some before?
Any other combinations I should try myself?
