Crunchy, roasted almonds dipped in chocolate. A surprisingly easy chocolate recipe to fix those sudden sweet attacks.

Ingredients of Chocolate Almond Rock

  • 1 cup confection chocolate (200 grams)
  • Handful of Almonds
  • Regular Kitchen Foil or Butter paper.
  • Any kitchen tray that you can spare.

How to Make Chocolate Almond Rock

  • 1.Pre-heat oven at minimum temperature of your oven (usually about a 100 degrees celcius) for 10-15 minutes.
  • 2.Let the almonds roast for 3-4 minutes and keep tossing them.
  • 3.Repeat 3-4 times till the insides almond - when cut - turn light brown.
  • 4.Remove from oven and let cool.
  • 5.Break confection chocolate into similar size pieces by hand or using a knife.
  • 6.Place in a glass bowl and microwave for 30-40 seconds.
  • 7.Remove the bowl and give the confection chocolate a good stir with a large spoon.
  • 8.Repeat the process till all chocolate pieces have melted and the temperature has reached 45 degrees Celsius +- 1degree
  • 9.Spread out the foil on a regular kitchen tray.
  • 10.Put 3 almonds in the bowl and toss to cover with confection chocolate on all sides.
  • 11.Take out an almond and place on the foil.
  • 12.Top it with another almond.
  • 13.Repeat this procedure with the third almond.
  • 14.Let these settle for 1-2 minutes.
  • 15.Let these chill in fridge for about 10 minutes.
  • 16.Notes:
  • 17.While roasting almonds, always use the middle rack of the oven for even roasting. Else you will end up burning the almonds from one side and under-cooking them from the other side.
  • 18.To make these almond rocks, extra delicious, I suggest you roast them first. (You could use plain almonds, but they don't pack in the same punch as roasted almonds) So cut out a big sheet of foil and nicely cover the tray of your oven and spread out the almonds on this.
  • 19.You can use this recipe to make almond rocks, walnut rocks, cashew rocks - any nuts or even a mix of nuts! You could use extra dark, dark, milk or white confection chocolate
