Recipes Almonds with Dark Chocolate and Orange A delicious combination of rich dark chocolate and tangy orange Difficulty Easy Ingredients Serves: 4 120g whole natural almonds Pared zest of 1 orange (use a potato peeler) 2 tsp caster sugar 100g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken into pieces Preparation Put the almonds onto a sheet of non-stick baking paper. Using a sharp knife, shred the orange peel finely. Put it into a saucepan with the sugar and 3 tbsp water. Heat to dissolve the sugar, then simmer gently to cook the orange peel until soft (about 2-3 minutes). By this time the water will have evaporated. Cool. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir, then drizzle over the almonds. Scatter the shreds of orange peel on top and leave until the chocolate has set. Serve. TIP: Add a handful of raisins or sultanas to the almonds, if you like.
