Cinnamon and Chocolate Almonds


  • 180 grams almonds (unshelled)
  • 500 grams sugar
  • 200 milliliters water
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (plus some for sprinkling)
  • 1 cup dessert (cinnamon)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar syrup


  1. Put the almonds on a tray and toast in a hot oven for 5 minutes.
  2. Place 500 g. of sugar, 200 ml of water, 2 teaspoons of chocolate, and the cinnamon in a pan.
  3. Stir well and cook over high heat until it begins to boil.
  4. Lower the heat and stir occasionally.
  5. When the sugar reaches 240ºF (when it starts forming a lot of foam and balls can be made by blowing in the skimmer), add the toasted almonds.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and continue to stir.
  7. The sugar will begin to form balls and to cluster with the almonds.
  8. Undo the balls of sugar, remove the almonds and put them in a container.
  9. Cook the remaining sugar in the pan on medium heat until it melts and add the almonds while stirring constantly so it can coat them.
  10. Keep on low heat so that the sugar does not burn.
  11. When the sugar is sticking to the almonds, turn off the heat and sprinkle with two tablespoons of sugar while stirring.
  12. Place the almonds on a tray and separate them from the lumps of sugar.
  13. Pour the clumps back into the pan and add a small amount of water (50-75 ml).
  14. When they start to melt, let them make a light caramel, remove from the heat, and add the almonds again.
  15. Stir until cool.
  16. Place the almonds on the work surface again and release those that are stuck.
  17. While they are warm, strain some chocolate and sprinkle them with it.
