Skill Level:

A delicious combination of rich dark chocolate and tangy orange


    • 120g whole natural almonds (Raw Natural Almonds)
    • Pared zest of 1 orange (use a potato peeler)
    • 2 tsp caster sugar
    • 100g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken into pieces


      1. Put the almonds onto a sheet of non-stick baking paper.
      2. Using a sharp knife, shred the orange peel finely. Put it into a saucepan with the sugar and 3 tbsp water. Heat to dissolve the sugar, then simmer gently to cook the orange peel until soft (about 2-3 minutes). By this time the water will have evaporated. Cool.
      3. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir, then drizzle over the almonds. Scatter the shreds of orange peel on top and leave until the chocolate has set. Serve.
      4. TIP: Add a handful of raisins or sultanas to the almonds, if you like (Sultana Raisins).Created by:  Almond Board of California
