Chocolate Cinnamon Almonds

A quick little sweet that is surprisingly tasty. I came up with this one for Christmas but it’s taken me a wee while to get the amounts right. I’ve been eating chocolate almonds for weeks!

chocolate cinnamon almonds

125g blanched almonds
60g dark chocolate (2/3 of a bar)
1/2 cup of raisins
40g poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water (you only need a little water in the pan – keep it from touching the bottom of the bowl). Once melted take it off the heat.

Add the almonds and raisins and stir until completely covered.

Put a sheet of greaseproof paper on a baking tray. Mix the poppy seeds and cinnamon in a bowl. Sprinkle a layer of seed mix on the paper, then spread the almonds and raisins evenly on top.

Sprinkle generously with remaining seeds. Put in the fridge to cool.

Once cooled break up into individual pieces (they’ll probably be all stuck together), eat, and enjoy.
