Do you have a friend in need of some chocolate?
If so, I would suggest making these most delicious Chocolate Covered Almonds. They are seriously good.
They involve all sorts of the very best things.
Like roasted almonds.
And cinnamon sugar syrup.
Lots of melted dark chocolate.
And we can't forget the cocoa!
All in a pretty little box.
These sweeties may look humble, but believe me, they are not. One taste and you will be smitten.
Yep, it's true. You will be smitten over almonds.

I recently baked cupcakes for a retirement party.
When I asked the retiree to name her cupcake preference she said, "Chocolate. Chocolate, chocolate". And, so I baked.
There was a lot of chopping involved.
|With Chocolate Ganache|
Devil's Food, indeed! They were delicious. I didn't wait for the ganache to fully set, as called for in the recipe . . . it was getting late! Instead, I dipped the cupcakes in the thickening ganache and left it at that. Not pretty piping, as I had planned, but perfect all the same.
