Chocolate Almond Crunchies

Here’s a nice simple sweet snack to make that’s well tasty. And I dare you to not lick out the bowl when you’re done.

tea and crunchy

150g dark cooking chocolate (I used Dr Oetkers Continental Plain Chocolate)
50-75g of cornflakes
1/3 of a cup of almond flakes
1/2 tsp almond essence

( makes 8 )

melting chocolate

Break up the chocolate and put it in a medium glass or ceramic bowl with almond essence. Put a medium pan on a high heat with about half an inch of water (so that it doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl) and bring to the boil.

Remove from heat and stir chocolate until melted. Return to heat as needed to achieve this.

adding cornflakes

Add the cornflakes and stir in until completely covered by chocolate. How much you put in is up to you, but if they’re not covered properly the crunchies won’t hold together.

Stir in the almond flakes until mixed. Don’t worry too much about covering them with chocolate too.

put in bun cases

Dish out into bun cases and then let cool completely. You can put them in the fridge if needed to cool them faster, it won’t make any difference to the flavour.

Enjoy with a nice cuppa char. 🙂
