Rocas de Chocolate (Chocolate Rocks)

Hello! 

I’ve been thinking about my next trip to Spain. Beach, good food, good wine … hmmm… I can’t wait. 

Every time I go to Spain to visit my family, I go to a chocolate shop. Oh boy, I would buy everything in that shop. Since I was thinking about it, I got inspired by one of their chocolate treats, chocolate rocks. 

I swear this is the easiest recipe on earth. All you need are chocolate and almonds, a two ingredient dessert. 

For the recipe, I used dark chocolate and white chocolate. You could easily use dark, milk or white chocolate, totally up to you! Just make sure to use a good quality chocolate. 

This recipe doesn’t really need any explanation at all. Simply melt chocolate, mix in almonds and spoon out onto baking paper in little piles. Easy right?! If you make this recipe, or any other recipes from my blog, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @joyofspanishcooking 

Ingredients makes 25 to 30 chocolate rocks.  

  • 10 ounces roasted slivered almonds 
  • 1 cup white chocolate 
  • 1 cup dark chocolate 
  1. Line a baking sheet with baking paper/silicone mat.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave in 30-second bursts until melted. 
  1. Stir in half of the almonds and mix until they are well coated in the chocolate.
  2. Scoop up spoonfuls of the mixture and place them in little piles on the baking sheet. Leave them to set in a cool place.
  3. Repeat the process with the other chocolate.

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
