Fit for a festive day, but made without much sweat! Who can resist crisp, perfectly roasted almonds coated in chocolate? Cool well, and treat yourself to these crunchy delights, or wrap them up in attractive papers and gift them to a dear one.

Ensure that the almonds are well roasted so that they remain crisp. Making almond rocks in the microwave retains the aroma of chocolate, without any charring or unnecessary morphing of the flavour. It is as good as melting the chocolate in a double-boiler.

Nothing like these rich tasting homemade Almond Rocks. Almonds plus chocolate make a fab combination. Made this recipe many times.
