Salted Almond Buttons

Ingredients

  • 75g of Dark Chocolate
  • 1 Teaspoon of Coconut Oil
  • 25-30 Almonds
  • Coarse Salt

I make these ALL the time. They’re my favourite thing to have before bed and a delicious way to switch it up from your usual squares of dark chocolate. They’re amazing with a cup of tea and I’ve even let one melt slowly into my porridge, basically they’re good with everything!

Start by dry roasting the almonds at 200’C for about 3 minutes. Melt your chocolate and coconut oil together until its glossy and smooth.

Lay out a piece of parchment paper on top of a chopping board or flat plate. Swirl 1-2 teaspoons of chocolate into each button.

Pop 2-3 almonds on each one and a pinch of coarse salt.

Let them set in the fridge until the chocolate hardens and then enjoy!

  3. I love this idea! There’s a beautiful little chocolate shop/cafe near my work that sells little buttons like this, they do a few variations of flat ones and also one with slivered almonds made into a kind of chocolate ‘nest’. Great idea for an afternoon pick me up!
