Choco Almond Rocks


One of the easiest chocolate recipes ever made. Perhaps the fact that I am not a chocoholic (unlike S and daughter) made it possible to make this and not eat this too. How can any event be complete without desserts, and this one doesn't take too much time either. Almonds are great for the skin and hair and has loads of Vit E (which depletes faster during winter), and chocolate....errr,,is Chocolate (do you need a reason to eat it?) .. Well, this is one super quick dessert you can put together for potlucks and kids parties alike. Of course, you can make it richer with butter, but we enjoyed it as it is. So, lets get on to the recipe now. Rushing this delicacy to Siri's event - Vegetarian Thanksgiving, hosted by Sreelu, Valli’s Snacks MelaRadhika's Winter Carnival as well as BM Day 6 and Vardhini’s BakeFest.

  19. @pradnya - by milk chocolate meant the normal Cadbury Dairy milk chocolate (which is brown in colour). havent added dark chocolate to this as my kid doesnt prefer the bitter taste.
