Chocolate Almonds Recipe History

“In 1742, William Parks printed a copy of Eliza Smith’s cookbook, The Compleat Housewife. “Chocolate almonds” was the only chocolate recipe it contained despite the popularity of chocolate among the wealthy at the time.”

“Many places on the internet claim that July 8 is (American) National Milk Chocolate with Almonds Day, while November 7 is National Bitter Chocolate with Almonds Day.” Wikipedia

Ingredients
  1. 8 oz. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
  2. 1½ c. roasted salted almonds
Instructions
  1. On large cookie sheet, arrange 48 paper or foil mini-muffin or candy cups in a single layer. (Or, line large cookie sheet with waxed paper.)
