An easy to make dark chocolate made with lightly toasted almonds, cayenne pepper and fresh orange zest. —Angela Brown

What You'll Need

  • 10 ounces dark chocolate

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • zest from 1 orange

  • ½ cup toasted almonds, roughly chopped

  • sea salt

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. When the chocolate is melted, stir in the cayenne, ¾ of the orange zest and ¾ of the toasted almonds. Spread the chocolate mixture onto the prepared sheet, being sure to smooth it into as thin a layer as possible. Sprinkle with the remaining zest, almonds and a generous pinch of coarse sea salt. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the chocolate is firm, about 30 minutes. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
