Almond horns are a quick and easy afternoon treat! They’re moist and chewy, and covered with crunchy almonds. Almond horns taste a bit like chocolate-covered marzipan. And they’re flour-free, gluten-free and dairy-free.
These almond horns are made from scratch. You’ll just need four ingredients for these almond horns: almonds, sugar, egg whites and chocolate. Almond horns are a great way to use up leftover egg whites!
- 8 oz/ 225g almonds + 1 handful almonds
- 2 egg whites
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 oz/ 60g baking chocolate
With a sharp knife, slice the handful of almonds (or use sliced almonds). Preheat the oven to 356°F/ 180°C.
Now make the almond paste: Place the 8 oz almonds and the sugar in a food processor and process until smooth. Stir in the egg whites. Now roll the almond dough between your hands into logs. Roll the logs in the sliced almonds and form into crescents. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Dip the cooled almond horns into the melted chocolate.
