Chocolate-covered Almonds and Hazelnuts Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 11/2 tbsp. (20 g) sugar
    • 2 tsp. (10 ml) water
    • 1 cup (125 g) almonds and hazelnuts
    • 1 tsp. (5 g) unsalted butter
    • 6 oz. (180 g) dark chocolate, melted

Method :

    1. Put the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
    2. Add the almonds and hazelnuts, then cook until the sugar is amber in color. Stir in the butter, then pour the mixture onto a baking sheet to cool, separating the almonds and hazelnuts.
    3. Once the nuts have cooled, put them in a large bowl and add about a quarter of the chocolate.
    4. Stir so that the chocolate does not solidify, keeping the almonds and hazelnuts well separated.
    5. Repeat until you have finished adding all of the chocolate. Transfer the chocolatecoated nuts to a large-mesh sieve set over a bowl, and let the excess chocolate drain off. Transfer the nuts to parchment and let them set. Store in a dry place at room temperature, preferably in sealed glass jars or in cans with a lid.
