Wickedly indulgent but healthy chocolates. In just 15 minutes and with minimal effort you can prepare a special gift for someone or some treats for yourself and your family.
  1. pre-heat oven to 200ºC fan or 220ºC static.
  2. place almonds on a baking tray and roast for 6-7 minutes until fragrant.
  3. let almonds cool down then put them in a zip bag or similar and bash them with a meat hammer so they are evenly crushed (you don't want fine crumbs).
  4. in a microwave proof bowl, brake chocolate and add hazelnut oil.
  5. microwave for a few minutes on very low setting, stopping and stirring often to ensure you don't overdo it and burn the chocolate (you can melt it in a bain-marie if you prefer).
  6. add almonds and stir well before pouring into your moulds.
  7. place in freezer for a few minutes until set.
  8. remove chocolates from moulds and enjoy.
If using silicone moulds, make sure you place a rigid mat underneath them, to help you carry them to the freezer without accidents.

Pour the almonds-chocolate mix into moulds using an ordinary teaspoon, it will be much easier than if you try and pour from a spouted jug.

Makes 265g of chocolates in total.

Metric kitchen scales are an inexpensive yet invaluable gadget to ensure accurate measurement of ingredients. Store them upright in a cupboard or over your worktop and they'll only take up a tiny bit of space. Click HERE for the ones I use. For U.S. option click HERE.
