Easy chocolate almond crunch

Description

No baking required to make this chocolate almond crunch, and this makes this recipe very suitable to let the kids cook with you.

Ingredients

3 oz almond (slivered)
10 oz chocolate (melted, to coat)

Instructions

  1. Toast the slivered almond in a frypan, no need to add any cooking oil, for a couple of minutes. Mix them with corn flakes.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave oven. Let it cool down and thicken and then melt again.
  3. Mix the melted chocolate with the almonds and corn flakes.
  4. Layer baking parchment on top of a tray, set a 3 inch ring on top. Fill the ring with 2 Tbs of the mix, pressing down slightly to shape it. Repeat until you have 12 cookies.
  5. Let it cool down. It will take about 2 hours at room temperature.

Notes

If you don't have a weight at hand, 3 oz slivered almonds are about 3 tablespoons, heaped - 4 oz cornflakes are 2-3 cups, depending on the brand - 10 oz chocolate are about 2½ cups, grated.

Make three batches, one with dark chocolate, one using milk chocolate and a third using white chocolate. A real treat!

And consider this recipe dairy free if you only use dark - milk free - chocolate.
