Almond Rocher introduction

Simple and quick preparation, without cooking, baking is another additional plus of this wonderful sweet.

The mixture for almond rocher is composed of only three ingredients in the base, and the glaze is made of chocolate and almonds. You do not need to be an expert in the kitchen to prepare, it is enough to follow a couple of very simple steps in the preparation. Prepare the ingredients, combine everything and leave in the fridge for about an hour. And believe it or not that’s it.

When the almond rocher balls have tightened and cooled they are ready to shape. If you are uncomfortable, you can always slightly wet your palms with water and thus facilitate the process of forming rocher balls. When you form the balls, then roll each one individually into chocolate with almond flakes, and you can first roll the ball only in almond flakes, then leave it in the fridge for a few more minutes, and only then roll the balls in chocolate, it is up to you to choose.
