Dark Chocolate Almond Lace Florentines

I love chewy cookies specially lace cookies or florentines , its Italian cookies which is paper thin and you can absolutely experiments with any ingredients and come up with new ideas. My favorite is Oatmeal Raisin Lace cookies. But as I mentioned in my previous post, my stock of after dinner , dessert was done, so have to make something , and I just got nice chopped almonds, wanted to use it and I always have all kinds of chocolate chips in my pantry. This was just pure experiment which was successful so didn't took a step wise pictures because I was not sure that its going to be successful or not. So when end result I see , that time I thought lets take at least this pictures so I can share it with you all. so here is my experiment of absolutely yummy crunchy and delicious chocolate covered almond lace florentines.

Ingredients : 

3/4 cup very finely chopped lightly salted almonds
2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted  butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1 tablespoon cream or half-n-half
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 oz. dark chocolate 

2 oz. Milk chocolate - optional 


Stir together almonds, butter, sugar, corn syrup, cream and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil.  Boil 1 minute.  Remove pan from heat and stir in vanilla and flour until combined.  Place mixture in a medium bowl, and chill 30 minutes in refrigerator, or until cold.  

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Roll teaspoons of dough into balls.  Place on cookie sheets, spacing about 3 inches apart.  Bake 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.  Cool 2-3 minutes before transferring cookies to wire racks to cool.  

Melt chocolate in a small bowl, in the microwave for 1 minute, or until melted.  Spread a thin or thick (as per your love)  layer of chocolate on the bottom halves of cookies.  Press two cookies together to form a sandwich; repeat process.  I used Milk chocolate also so just to try it but you can just do it with one chocolate.
