DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
