  • Toast almonds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Stir frequently until fragrant, about two to three minutes. Let cool.
  • Place a heat proof bowl over a saucepan filled with water (or use a double boiler). Pour dark chocolate chips in the bowl over medium heat. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and vanilla extract.
  • Stirring constantly, heat chocolate mixture until smooth and melted. Turn off heat.
  • Pour almonds in chocolate mixture and stir so that all the almonds are coated.
  • With a tweezers, pull out each almond individually* and place on a parchment lined sheet pan, keeping almonds separated. You may need to reheat the chocolate if it starts to solidify.
  • Place in the freezer or the fridge, depending upon how patient you are for the almonds to set. Store in the fridge.


Alternatively, you could use a spoon and lift out clusters of almonds if you don't mind them being stuck together.
