Christmas Candy: Chocolate-dipped almond toffee


Here's a recipe I heartily recommend for your christmas candy making! It's really easy and fast, and more importantly, delicious! It's a very soft toffee (so it won't pull out all your fillings) and you can coat it with any chocolate you'd like. I chose milk chocolate here, but a nice, dark chocolate would certainly make it less sweet.

Chocolate-dipped almond toffee

4 tsp cocoa powder
4 tbsp all-purpose flour
100 g butter
100 ml (about 0,4 cups) flaked almonds
200 g sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup

200 g chocolate, to coat

Mix everything, except for the chocolate, in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, and let it boil for 3-4 minutes. Pour into a lined tin, and leave to cool completely. Later, dip it in chocolate. (Which you can temper if you master that particular technique, or not if you're like me.) Keep cool.
