A cozy winter feeling is finally taking over our hearts by indulging all our senses. We’ve decorated our houses with fir branches, fairy lights and Christmas ornaments. We listen to Christmassy songs almost 24 hours a day. And countless scented candels fill the air with fragrant wintry flavours. So, there is only one thing left to top off the wintry coziness – a sweet little treat for our taste buds. It should be a typical christmas treat with all the flavours that pop into our minds while thinking about the best time of the year. Of course, we could bake cookies. It’s THE season for lots of cookies. But I am thinking about something else. Something you won’t need your oven for – Homemade roasted almond chocolates with a dash of Orang liqueur.
In there are roasted almonds. For me, those super sweet and cruncy nuts belong to Christmas like roast apples and Christmas stollen. You can find them everywhere on the Christmas markets. And I can barely go home without buying one or two bags of them.
Additionally the chocolates are flavoured with Orange liqueur. A perfect ingredients especially during those cold days. Citrus fruits strengthen the body’s defenses after all. Although I doubt that orange liqueur has the same effects. At least it will keep us warm from the inside.
And then there is chocolate… lots of chocolate. Do I have to say more?
I think, those roasted almond chocolates with a dash of orange liqueur are an explosion of christmassy flavours. You could even add cinnamon for a little extra. And the best for last: these fellas are damn easy to prepare. You won’t need special chocolate making tools. Only your hands and a few kitchen supplies you already have in stock.
An easy-peasy recipe for all those chocolate making rookies and workaholics among us. But take a look for yourself:
Instead of eating them all on my own (it’s really hard to resist the temptation), I will give a few of them to my family and closest friends.
With this in mind,
Have fun eating and giving them away!
