  •  Sometimes keeping it simple is best. Like these toasted slivered almonds coated in chocolate. Crunchy and chocolaty!

    3 bowls with milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate.o

    Today I want to share a super quick and easy chocolate recipe with you. It doesn’t take longer than 15 minutes and there are 3 different variations you can make. The best thing is- you only need 3 ingredients! Almonds by themselves are great, but add some butter and chocolate and you got yourself little piles of deliciousness. If you’re in a hurry but want to make a gift for someone (or treat yourself to something), these chocolate almond clusters are for you!

    This is a family recipe which has been passed down from 3 generations of women. We all love it so much due to it’s simplicity and yet amazing flavor. (Is there anything more delicious than almonds toasted in butter? OMG that smell!!) Plus, another thing all women in my family agree on, is that the version with white chocolate is the best one. Now I don’t want to talk smack about the other two versions, they are great as well. I especially enjoy making all three kinds: white, milk and dark, because it’s not much extra work and it makes a great presentation.

    For best results use couverture which melts better and has a beautiful glossy sheen due to a higher fat content. Oh and it also tastes better, trust me. 😉

    Almond Clusters- Three Ways

    • Prep Time: 10 minutes
    • Cook Time: 4 minutes
    • Total Time: 14 minutes
    • Yield: 20 1x


    Easy, quick and super crunchy almond clusters- 3 ways!


    • 100g dark/milk/white couverture or high quality chocolate (3.5oz)
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 100g slivered almonds (3.5oz)


    1. Start by chopping the couverture into small pieces and melt over a double boiler or nuke in short intervals in the microwave.
    2. Melt the butter in pan and once melted, add in the slivered almonds and roast until fragrant and browned (careful, as they burn easily).
    3. Add the almonds into the melted chocolate and stir until they are evenly coated.
    4. With a teaspoon form little piles of almond clusters and set on parchment paper.
    5. Let the chocolate cool completely.


    Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.

      Schaut echt grandios aus ! (Bei dir zumindest, bei mir war es noch ein Gatsch. hahah) Schmeckt aber echt toll und ist schnell gemacht, werde mich da nochmal dran probieren, eventuell kriege ich es ja noch besser hin.

      Nebenbei: Ein sehr schöner blog, gefällt mir richtig gut, dass du auch auf Sachen wie: Kochzeit und Bilder während des machens (und nicht nur am Ende, wenn es fertig ist) denkst. Weiter so ! 🙂
