Around this time of the year I love to create my own little chocolate treats to give away to family and friends over the Easter break. Last year I made a batch of these Salted Almond Dark Chocolates and they were a hit!

This chocolate treat contains three of my favourite things: dark chocolate, almonds and fleur de sel. The recipe is super easy and quick to make (yes even tempering the chocolate, who would have thought?!). I found a really helpful method for tempering chocolate without a sugar thermometer over on 'The Kitchn' website. I have used this method a few times now and it has worked perfectly every time! Thank you Kitchn.com!

I also just posted a Salted Honey & Almond Toffee with Dark Chocolate recipe that’s worth checking out!

Enjoy friends!
