I can't believe how such a wonderful recipe hasn't been tried for sooooooo long!! These are absolutely yummy! I used 1 cup of plain whole walnuts(toasted lightly)and 1 cup of plain broken cashewnuts(toasted lightly) on the pan. Since I have alot of whipping cream on hand, and I didn't mind making these richer, I used 6 tbsps. of whipping cream and 57 gms.(or 4 oz.) of semisweet chocolate chips, 1 tsp. of Nescafe Instant coffee powder and 1/2 tsp. of Sunflower cooking oil to melt the choc chips. These are wonderful - the burst of coffee flavour is unique! Thank you so much for sharing!
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped fine or use good quality chips
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil (I use walnut oil)
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee powder
- 1 1⁄2 cups unsalted nuts (use anykind, it's all good)
Directions See How It's Made
- Roast the nuts in a 350 degree oven until aromatic and lightly browned.
- Depending on the nut's it could be 5-12 mins Melt the chocolate with the oil and coffee in a double boiler over low heat.
- The water should not touch the pan and shouldn't be over 160 degrees f.
- Remove the chocolate as it starts to melt and stir, the ambient heat should be enough to finsih melting it.
- If not return to heat for a couple minutes.
- This can be done in a microwave if you stop it every 15 seconds to stir.
- Stir chocolate until it's, add nuts, drop onto sheets of wax paper with a heaping measuring teaspoon.
- Let cure, will take 1-4 hours depending on heat and humidity.
- Note, you may have too much chocolate depending on the nuts you use.
- This amount worked well for pecans and walnuts, but was a bit too much for almonds and cashews.
- Store in an airtight container for weeks.
