Chocolate Covered Almonds

created by: Almond Board of California

1/2 cup almonds, roasted
2 ounces dark chocolate, bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

Place a metal bowl of chocolate on top of one inch of water in a small saucepan.  Bring water to a low simmer; stir chocolate until melted.  Remove pan from heat.  Working quickly, mix almonds in with the melted chocolate.  Let dry on waxed paper, and serve.

To roast almonds: Spread in an ungreased baking pan. Place in 350ºF oven and bake 10 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant; stir once or twice to assure even browning. Note that almonds will continue to roast slightly after removing from oven.
