Cranberry Almond Bark and Hazelnut Rochers

In today’s chocolate class we made Cranberry Almond Bark and Hazelnut Rochers. Yum yum yum!

I think most people know what chocolate bark is. We made ours today with whole natural almondswhich we roasted after we covered them with sugar and triple sec. Then we pre-crystallized the dark chocolate and mixed in the roasted almonds and dried cranberries. We also sprinkled extra roasted almonds and cranberries on top. Then we spread it onto parchment paper to set. Then we cut into bite sized pieces. 🙂

We also made Hazelnut Rochers (or in other words, little nutty chocolate piles). We roasted slivered almonds in the oven, and toasted the whole hazelnuts. We then chopped the hazelnuts to smaller pieces. We tempered our chocolate (or pre-crystallized it), added the almomds slivers, chopped hazelnuts and feuilletine. We then very quickly spooned out the little piles onto parchment paper to set. Delicious!! 😀
