Homemade Chocolate Almond Spread

By: Unknown
Region: Indian
Dish:Vegetarian - Breakfast/Tiffins/Snacks

Ingredients

70 grams or 1/2 cup almonds
200 ml cream (I used 20% fat cream)
120 grams milk chocolate
120 grams dark chocolate
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

To make this easy Homemade Chocolate Almond Spread Recipe, blanch and peel the almonds.

Pat dry completely and then toast in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Or you could toast them in a skillet for few minutes, alternatively.

Grind half the almonds into a fine flour using a mixer or food processor.

If you want a chunky spread, coarsely chop the remaining almonds. If you want a smoother consistency, grind the remaining almonds to a paste.

In a saucepan, heat the cream and finely ground almond flour (at least half, in any case) together until the cream bubbles around the edges. Take off heat, cover and let rest for an hour.

Pass this through a sieve. You may need a spoon or spatula to pass the mixture through the sieve.

Chop up the chocolates into small pieces and melt until smooth in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water (double boiler method).

Mix the chocolate and cream together.

Mix in the salt and vanilla.

Fold in the chopped almonds/ almond paste to the choco-almond spread.

Store Homemade Chocolate Almond Spread Recipe an airtight container and use it as required.

Comments
