Standard 1 cup measures 240 ml

Equipment

  • Instant Pot 6 qt or Sauce pan
  • Heat proof bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Almonds
  • 7 oz Dark Chocolate or 200 gms approximately

Instructions 

  • In a cast iron pan dry roast the almonds in a low flame for 5 - 8 mins. Alternatively you can roast in the oven. If you are using roasted Almonds you may skip this step.
  • Switch on the Instant Pot in saute mode. Add in 1 cup water to the inner steel pot. Wait till the water comes to a boil.
  • Now press the cancel button and then press the keep warm button.
  • Place a heat proof bowl that fits on top of the Instant pot. (I dint have a big bowl so placed a steel wire mesh and then my bowl on top of that). Add in 200gm of dark chocolate.
  • Slowly the chocolate starts melting. Stir gently until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Now add the roasted Almonds to the chocolate . Stir everything so that the Almonds fully coat the chocolate.
  • Transfer the Almonds one by one to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Try removing the excess chocolate as much as possible before placing them in the parchment paper.
  • Let the almonds rest for 1 hour in room temperature or in the fridge. Let them dry completely.
  • After drying remove the Almonds from the parchment paper and store in air tight containers. Chocolate coated Almonds are now ready to munch on.
