.:Orange Creme Almonds:.

It’s been awhile since I shared a recipe with you all. And to be honest, it’s a bit of a stretch to call this a recipe. But they were delicious, and super simple to make, so I figured you might like it.

Here’s a little backstory on these babies. My husband was sent some orange crème almonds at work and loved them. After he gave me some to sample, I sneakily saved the packaging so that I could order him some for Father’s Day. So, I go to order them, and as I expected they are slightly overpriced, but I was okay with that since it was a treat for Father’s Day. But when I went to check out, the shipping chargers were horrendous! I don’t have it in me to spend that much on shipping for something so small, and I know my husband would have been less than thrilled if I had done it. So I set out to make some of my own!

Here’s what you need:

- raw almonds
- white chocolate almond bark
- red and yellow food coloring (or orange if you have some!)
- orange extract
- wax paper

Start off by melting the almond bark in the microwave in 45 second intervals. Stir in between intervals. It took me about three or four for this entire package of almond bark.

Mix in your food coloring,

until you get the lovely shade of orange you desire.

Add in orange extract to taste. I probably used close to a quarter of my bottle, but it’s totally a personal preference.

Dip the almonds, and lay on wax paper to dry. It’s totally okay to sample some if you need to. You’ve got to make sure they taste alright, don’t you?

Once they are hardened, package them up and deliver to your intended recipient. Or just eat them all yourself. I won’t judge.

Now I feel like I want to go buy a bunch of different extracts and go into a dipping frenzy. Who’s with me?

    1. I'd say they took no longer than about a half hour to dry; it wasn't long! Enjoy!
