Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds
A sweet and simple recipe for Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
- 1 3/4 cups whole almonds (245g)
- 6 oz dark chocolate I use 60% dark chocolate Ghirardelli bars (170g)
- 1/4 cup Turbinado sugar (50g)
- sea salt for sprinkling
Preheat your oven to 350F (175C). Scatter almonds evenly over an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake almonds in 350F (175C) oven for 10-15 minutes, using a spatula to turn the almonds every 5 minutes. You will smell a roasted nutty aroma when they are finished baking. Allow almonds to cool before coating in chocolate.
Coarsely chop your chocolate and place in a small bowl. Microwave on 15 second increments, stirring well in between, until chocolate is melted and smooth.
Pour your prepared almonds into the bowl of chocolate and stir well.
Use a fork to lift almonds out of the chocolate and drop almonds individually and separately onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper. You want most of the excess chocolate to drain off of the nuts before they make it to the paper, and the fork allows much of the chocolate to drain through the tines. I usually use two forks, one to lift the almonds out, and another to carefully drop the almonds separately onto the sheet.
Sprinkle almonds with turbinado sugar and sea salt. Allow the chocolate to harden before enjoying (this can take over an hour at room temperature, or you can speed things up by moving the almonds to the refrigerator).
