Chocolate & Caramel-Coated Almond

This snack is extremely addictive, I'm sure you won't be able to stop at one!

Chocolate & Caramel-Coated Almond Recipe

150g almond
50g sugar
20ml water
A dash of salt
5g unsalted butter
50g bittersweet chocolate, melted (I used Valhona Guanaja 70%)
Cocoa powder, for dusting

1) Roast almond at 130 deg C for 25 minutes. Let it cool to room temperature.
2) In a saucepan, cook sugar and water until caramelised. Turn off heat. Stir in salt, follow by almonds. Add in butter and continue to stir until combine.
3) Pour the almonds onto a large baking tray. Spread out the almonds quickly and let it cool to room temperature.
4) Stir the almonds into the bowl of melted chocolate, making sure that every piece of almond is covered with chocolate. Spread out onto the baking tray again, and then keep in the fridge until the chocolate hardened.
5) Dust the almonds with cocoa powder, serve.

Those are beautiful and very tempting... I've never made them sweet, always spicy or sweet and spicy, this sounds marvelous.

A great idea to make in advance and always have ready to give out as small gifts!

Hi all - Thanks so much for your comments! :-D

Leemei - I've not eaten cinnamon almonds before and I'll definitely let you know if I come across the recipe.

Thibeault's Table - white chocolate almonds sound yummy! Glad that you like the recipe. :-)
