Chocolate Almonds- your own piece of Chocolate Heaven!

Who doesn't love Roasted Almonds? Chocolate. Roasted. Almonds?!
Even just roasting your own Almonds are great, and a really good snack! 
Well, they are fantastic and easy to make at home. Just get your preferred type of Chocolate. We use Lindt most of the time. I love a good Dark chocolate, but Chef not so much. Sometimes he will mix Milk chocolate and Darker chocolate together, so we both stay happy!

Always melt your chocolate well. The technique is simple enough. Have a pot of simmering water on the stove and use a metal bowl over it. This allows for good heat to melt your chocolate, but it will prevent it from overcooking.

If you buy Almonds from your supermarket, they are best if you roast them first. That way you know they have an awesome crunch to them, and they will stay that way rather than becoming soggy within a couple of days.
