Homemade Chocolates!

Now that the food processor AND the spice grinder have decided they no longer want to participate in the kitchen I’m going to have to be creative!  🙂

But I still ‘heart’ cuisinart!

These are actually pretty simple to make.

Make the caramel sauce first… find this recipe on our blog.

Let the caramel cool and add in about a cup of almonds – or whatever edible nut you like.

Scoop three or four of the almonds and some caramel onto a parchment lined cookie sheet… place them on the sheet almost like you’re going to bake cookies.

Put them in the freezer for about half an hour.  This way, the caramel is firm and when you roll the almonds and caramel in the melted chocolate the chocolate will firm up PDQ!

Melt some beautiful dark chocolate and a little bit of coconut oil in a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water and roll the nut/caramel combo in the goodness until completely coated.  Place them back on the parchment and sprinkle a little bit of sea salt on the top and they’re done!

Probably best to keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to share them!  🙂
