Fit for a festive day, but made without much sweat! Who can resist crisp, perfectly roasted almonds coated in chocolate? Cool well, and treat yourself to these crunchy delights, or wrap them up in attractive papers and gift them to a dear one.
Ensure that the almonds are well roasted so that they remain crisp. Making almond rocks in the microwave retains the aroma of chocolate, without any charring or unnecessary morphing of the flavour. It is as good as melting the chocolate in a double-boiler.
- Spread the almond slices evenly in a plate and microwave on high for 2 minutes or until light pink in colour. Keep aside to cool.
- Put the chocolate into a small microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring once in between after 1½ minutes.
- Remove from the microwave and continuously stir the chocolate until it cools a little.
- Add the almonds and mix well.
- Put small pieces of coated almonds on a tray lined with grease-proof paper or aluminium foil. Keep in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
- Wrap each rock in a decorative foil and store in the refrigerator.
