Dark Chocolate Salted Almond Toffee
Dark chocolate with salted almond toffee is a hit among those who love contrasting flavors. The bitter, rich taste of dark chocolate mixed with toffee’s gooey goodness and almond’s crunchiness is a perfect recipe for yumminess. Prepare two cups of unsalted almonds, a cup of butter, half a cup of water, a cup of sugar, teaspoons of corn syrup, and chopped dark chocolate. Don’t forget some sea salt to sprinkle your toffee delight.
The sweet, tangy flavor of strawberry is a perfect match to milk or hazelnut chocolate. This recipe is simple enough to replicate at home. Simply get some fresh strawberries and grab your jar of Nutella or melted chocolate chips. You can either dip the strawberries wholly or cut it in halves. Show a bit of creativity with the plating by adding some candy sprinkles. This treat is best when chilled.
Perfect for the Easter holidays, doing chocolate bunnies will surely entertain the kids. Chop some milk or white chocolate and melt the bits in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Use a rabbit shaped mold to form the chocolate — you can use other animal shapes, as well. Carefully break the molded chocolate in half to put the candies or other sweet treats in the center. Use the melted chocolate to join the halves.
These three simple recipes make the perfect dessert or snack for any occasion. Share these sweet treats with your loved ones and enjoy the irresistible taste of chocolate.
