To celebrate making it through this week, I found it only appropriate to create a candy recipe, this being of course my favorite category of recipe and possibly my favorite food group. Yes, for some of us, candy is a food group.
2 cups dagoba chocodrops
1 teaspoon orange extract
1 cup almonds, toasted then coarsely chopped
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted
In a medium saucepan, melt the chocolate over very low heat
Stir in the orange extract
Allow the nuts and coconut to cool, 10-15 minutes, then stir them into the melted chocolate
Drop by heaping tablespoonful onto a parchment lined baking sheet
Allow to cool
If need be (as in it’s too hot in your kitchen for these to set) transfer clusters to a plate and cool in freezer
