Total Time12 mins
Servings: 8 people
- 20 ounces Semi-sweet chocolate
- 12 ounces Blue Diamond Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
Using a cutting board, chop 6 ounces of Blue Diamond Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds into small pieces using a large chopping knife, and set aside.
Dump chocolate chips into a shallow glass bowl.
Place bowl in the microwave, and microwave for 20-30 seconds.
Stir well. *
Return to microwave for another 20-30 seconds.
Stir again. **
Repeat process until most of the chocolate has melted and is smooth. (You will likely melt for a total of 1.5-2 minutes, or in other words, 1 or 2 more times, but it depends on the voltage and power of your microwave, and how small the chocolate pieces are)
When most of the chocolate is melted, and you have stirred it smooth, let it stand for a minute or two to allow the rest of the chocolate to melt.
Pour chopped almonds into the melted chocolate and half of the remaining whole almonds.
Stir the almonds and chocolate together.
Pour chocolate and almond mixture onto the lined baking sheet, and use a silicone spatula to spread it around into an even layer.
Place in refrigerator to let set.
Once chocolate is set up, break it into evenly sized pieces.
Package for gifts or enjoy. Will keep in an airtight bag or container for several weeks.
*It will feel unnecessary the first time you stir the chocolate, and maybe even the second time, but this is key to good results, because you want to make sure the heat is evenly distributed amongst the chocolate.
**The edges of the bowl are going to melt faster than the center and distributing their heat will melt everything more evenly and quickly, without overheating any one piece of chocolate.
