Zesty Almond Crunchies

225g plain chocolate
15g unsalted butter
150g flaked almonds
Grated zest of 1 medium orange
This week I’ve attempted to make a couple of baking delights. I’m currently writing this waiting for some blueberry cupcakes to bake, so watch this space! But these chocolate crunchies are something I made yesterday. Sadly they’re dark chocolate, which I don’t personally like (all the more for my boyfriend) but I did try one and they seem pretty good. Next time I’ll try them with milk chocolate.
They’re so easy to make, I found the recipe in the sweet book my friend Millie gave me to look at. All you do is melt the chocolate, add some orange zest and mix in the almonds. Spoonful the mixture out in to even amounts on a baking tray and leave to cool in the fridge. Then store them in an air tight container 🙂 They’re basically like chocolate cornflake cakes you used to make when you were younger (or still do like me) but with almonds instead! 

Hope everyone’s having a lovely weekend! Sorry for the lack of blogging this week. My parents have been away, so every night when I’m from work my routine has been cook food, wash up, shower, make lunch for the next day, catch up with jersey shore. I’ve been so tired I haven’t actually done anything worth blogging about. 🙁 x
