Organic Chocolate Kisses

by Barbara Kahn, Barbara Kahn Fine Arts

( all of the organic ingredients can be bought at a natural foods store and many at the supermarket like Ingles)
15 minutes        
Yield: about 24 kisses

Ingredients, All Organic:
1/2 cup almonds, hazelnuts or pecans
1 cube sweet butter
9 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
6 drops almond or hazelnut extract
pinch of cinnamon

  1. Chop nuts in a mini-food processor first, or put in plastic bag and roll over them with a rolling pin or hammer with a wooden mallet. Put aside
  2. Melt butter over low heat in sauce pan.
  3. Add sugar and cream and stir until blended and smooth for a few minutes.
  4. Add cocoa, one tablespoon at a time, stirring each spoonful into the liquid. Stir until the chocolate gets shiny and will leave the spoon easily.
  5. Add almonds and extract and mix well. Allow to cool in sauce pan for a few hours, covered on counter. then refrigerate 12 to 24 hours.
  6. Put one tablespoon cocoa powder in saucer and if you wish, add a few sprinkles of ground cinnamon. Mix. Option: set aside some chopped almonds to roll the balls into also.
  7. Remove mixture from fridge and make individual balls by rolling about a teaspoon in palms of hands (the chocolate softens in the warmth of your hands), then roll in cocoa cinnamon mixture and then chopped almonds.
  8. Wrap in aluminum foil. Refrigerate balls, covered. Remove from fridge about two hours before serving. Delectable and almost impossible to eat just one!
This easy recipe is a wonderful Valentines Day treat.
Chocolate is actually good for you, so enjoy it!
