Happy October! Anyone else been feeling like this year just whizzed by? I’m drowning in a sea of assignments and midterms, but I’m still trying to maintain some semblance of a healthy lifestyle. It’s been difficult, I won’t lie! It’s especially hard when there’s free food on campus all the time. Did I mention the fudge cart on the way to my 8:30 AM morning class on Monday? I’m drooling…
Like I said, I’ll focus on delicious (but modest) desserts for a little while so I don’t buy a pound of fudge for myself every Monday morning. Almonds are so delicious, made more delicious smothered in tempered dark chocolate!
I constantly see bags of chocolate covered almonds at the grocery store that tempt me, but the homemade version is must cheaper, I guarantee it. What are some other things that you love to cover in chocolate?
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup toasted almonds
- In a double boiler, let chocolate chips melt. Stir until smooth
- Let the chocolate cool for a few minutes, and then stir in almonds to coat each almond completely
- On a lined baking sheet, place each almond separately and put into the freezer for a minimum of 1 hour
- Remove with a spatula
