::super snack:: Ch-Ch-Chocolate Almonds

I love chocolate.  Milk chocolate especially.  I also love spicy foods.  Combining chocolate and cayenne may be one of my favorite food trends this past year.  I want to put cayenne in everything I make with chocolate.  It doesn’t always work.  But sometimes it works quite nicely.  These almonds were no exception.  Chocolate covered almonds with a spicy after-burn that could make you cry if you weren’t expecting it.

I might not make these for Mother’s Day Brunch since we don’t have a ton of spice lovers.  But I will probably be making some of the Chai Spiced Almonds.

What You Need
275F oven
Bowl One
1 egg white
Tsp water
Bowl Two
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp salt
Step Three
3 cups raw almonds

Mix each bowl of ingredients separately.  Add almonds to the egg white mixture.  Mix dry ingredients into almonds, coating thoroughly.

Spread almonds onto parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the majority of almonds are dry.  Cool on wire rack and enjoy!
