Almond Chocolates

These were another alternative I came up with instead of regular store bought chocolate over Easter.  The shops were absolutely busting at the seams with all sorts of chocolate so I came up with these and the Coconut Chocolates from the previous post.  I was certainly not wanting for anymore chocolate that’s for sure!  The Almond meal in these is a bit different and manages to give a fair bit of body to the chocolate, you could be convinced you were eating all sorts of filthy things!  Plus there is something really satisfying about not buying from the HUGE display of chocolate you have to walk sideways through to get to the checkout.  It’s like sockin to” the man”……hahaha you know “the man”……anyway.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Almond meal

1 tbs honey

1 tbs 100% Maple Syrup

1/4 cup Coconut Oil

1 tbs Cacao butter

1 tsp Natural Peppermint extract


How To Do It:

Melt down the cacao butter and coconut oil using a double boiler or in the microwave. Add all other ingredients and spoon into moulds to set for several hours or overnight.  Leave out the Peppermint if you wish but I reckon these choccies would be lost without it.  Once set pop out of moulds and keep in the fridge or freezer.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. Hi Sarah, I made this recipe today, but my cocoa butter is a creamy colour so the end result wasn’t chocolate. I have added cocoa pdr & coconut. Hope it turns out, am looking forward to trying it. I haven’t eaten chocolate for ages!!! A sper of the moment thing before going to work. Cheers Heather
