Almond Rock (Nut rock)

 It’s been so long that i have posted an entry...
Summer was good and fall is not every weekend, we are doing something with little S, She is all of 1.5 years and a bundle of u can say i was lazily busy :)

Smitha of Smitha's spicy Flavours is guest hosting an the MEC festive event for Srivalli of cooking4allseasons

And I have an easy and "can be very popular recipe of your kitchen" without much sweat in the kitchen.

I have used 100% cacao...coz i am a chocoholic and i can control the amount of Sugar
I have sweetened the chocolate with honey and sugar
You can try with any percentage of cacao...if ur using lesser percentage than remember that chocolate already has some sugar and milk solids


8 oz 100% Cacao chocolate
10 tbsp sugar powdered
5 tbsp honey
2 cups Nuts(Almonds and Walnuts)


Roast the nuts in the microwave (Roasted the Almonds and Walnuts separately)
30 seconds each time and keep tossing them every 30 seconds for 2 mins.
Cool and chop the nuts

Chop/grate the chocolates roughly and microwave it for 1 and 1/2 minutes

Add all the ingredients mix well. as the mixture can start to harden
Spread it on the Parchment paper or silver foil. i think u can shape them as laddoos(round) too.
Cut now so that it would be easier to cut once the chocolate cools. Allow it to cool

i usually refrigerate it for 1 to 2 hours...i know u don’t refrigerate the chocolate...but believe me its not bad

The Nut ratio is like more than the chocolate...basically like a cheekii
If the mixture hardens and u find it a little difficult to spread
Put it in the microwave for another 30 seconds.
