Dark chocolate with almonds

Not really a recipe, but just an idea how to spice up your favourite dark chocolate. I love it plain, but sometimes I look jealously on supermarket shelves, full of milk chocolates in endless variations. Its difficult to find anything that is not higher than 30g carbs, and still a bit more exciting and flavoursome. I decided to make my own then J Nothing difficult, but makes a massive difference. Just melt your favourite dark chocolate and pour it over some almonds or nuts.  Maybe pinch of chili or a bit of cinnamon would make an interesting addition too.

  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • About 100 g of nuts (avoid cashews as they are a bit higher in carbs)
  • Spices of your choice (sea salt, chili powder, cinnamon)

  • In a bowl, over simmering water, melt the chocolate.
  • Line a tray with the cling film.
  • In a medium bowl combine the nuts with the spices and melted chocolate. Spread the mixture evenly on the tray and let it cool down. Place in a fridge for about 30 mins and then carefully turn over and pill the cling film. Break into pieces and store in the air tight container. 

Enjoy :)

Im afraid you will have to do your own calculations:) It all depends what chocolate and nuts you use.
