Oh tonight’s creation was a hum-dinger! Chocolate Almond Empanadas are amazing! This chocolate dough is very easy to work with. It is a very thick one but it is really easy to mold it into whatever shape you desire. I had first rolled it into a ball shape, then decided to flatten it out and I found it was easy to almost “stretch” it to a flat pancake shape. “Hmmm, I thought, I could fold it over and stuff it with something!” I had some fresh almond butter in the fridge and thought, “Well shoot, that would compliment the almond in the dough really well.” But gosh, you could use about anything; peanut butter, jams, coconut, the list goes on. I had one left to make but had run out of my almond butter so I searched the fridge so I could complete my very last one. I found some raw peanut butter and used that. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it and get a feel of creamy almond butter in there.
