chocolate almond cookie just out of the ovenChocolate almond cookies are chocolate cookie heaven. Laden with chocolate and almonds, moist with a little skirt of chewy crunch and very possibly addictive…..you won’t be able to stop at eating just one! Melting pockets of chocolate and almond crunch in every bite…..delicious! If you love the combination of chocolate and nuts try our chocolate chip cookies with macadamia for another unbelievably good chocolate chip cookie.

THE MIXTURE AND ELBOW GREASE!

Chocolate almond cookies are easy peasy to make but……the mixture is a very thick…very, very thick so you will need a bit of muscle to mix in the chocolate and almonds.

BAKING THE CHOCOLATE ALMOND COOKIES

All ovens differ. Check your cookies at the 11 or 12-minute mark as they will be soft but if you lift one up and check the bottom of the cookie it should be a nice deep brown colour. Remove and allow to cool on the tray. As the cookies cool they will dry a little and you should have a slightly crunchy outside.
