How To Reheat & Store Milk Chocolate Covered Almonds
Best Way To Store Chocolate Covered Almond Leftovers
The greatest place to keep leftovers of chocolate-covered almonds is in an airtight container or a ziplock bag. Chocolate-covered almonds may be kept on the kitchen counter for up to 4 weeks if properly sealed in an airtight container.
How Long Will Chocolate Covered Almonds Last In The Refrigerator?
Chocolate-covered almonds can be kept for up to four weeks in the refrigerator. Always remember to use an airtight container or ziplock bag.
Can I Freeze Almonds Covered In Milk Chocolate?
You can freeze chocolate-covered almonds. They will keep for up to six months in an airtight container or freezer bag. When you take frozen chocolate-covered almonds out of the freezer, and they begin to thaw, they will produce condensation and not look as lovely as they did when stored in the freezer, but they will taste just as fantastic.
How To Reheat Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds
I do not suggest heating chocolate-covered almonds because they will melt if heated. When the chocolate coating becomes too warm, it will liquefy, resulting in a huge chocolate mess.
Chocolate Covered Almonds FAQs
Will chocolate chips work in place of chocolate bars for this recipe?
Yes. You may use whatever type of chocolate you have on hand. Chocolate chips are ideal since they are already small and melt quicker. If you're using a bar of chocolate, make sure you cut it into little pieces. Smaller pieces of chocolate help to speed up the melting process and avoid burning.
Can I use a double boiler in place of a microwave in this recipe?
Yes, of course! It's just easier for me to use the microwave than lugging out more dishes, but you may melt the chocolate in a double boiler. You can also make a homemade double boiler by heating a normal saucepot and heat-safe bowl over medium-low heat.
Do raw almonds and roasted almonds have different flavors?
Yes. While raw almonds covered in chocolate are delectable, roasted almonds are crunchier and have more of a nutty flavor than raw ones. The flavor of the milk or dark chocolate is enhanced with roasted almonds as well.
Will this recipe work if salted almonds are used?
Yes, if you love the salty-sweet flavor combination, using salted almonds would be an excellent way to make chocolate-covered almonds.
Can I turn these into chocolate-covered almond clusters?
Yes. Simply spoon 4 to 5 chocolate-covered almonds out of the melted chocolate and arrange them in a pile so they will stick together to form clusters.
