Chocolate almond clusters
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- 1 tablespoon icing sugar
- 100g good quality dark chocolate, chopped
- Finely grated zest of an orange
Preheat oven to 180C.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread almonds in a single layer. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Bake for 5-7 minutes until golden brown, remove from oven and cool slightly.
Melt chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stir until melted and smooth.
Stir in almonds, icing sugar and orange zest.
Place teaspoonfuls of mixture onto a clean sheet of baking paper, refrigerate for an hour until set, then store in an air-tight container.
- A wonderful adult treat for Easter afternoon tea/coffee or evening tea/coffee, for that matter.
