  1. 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  2. 3 tablespoons water
  3. 1 1/4 cups blanched whole almonds, toasted
  4. 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
  1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and water and boil over moderate heat without stirring until the syrup reaches 248° on a candy thermometer, 10 minutes. Add the almonds and stir to coat. Spread the nuts in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet; let cool.
  2. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the candied almonds and refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 15 minutes. Serve cold or at room temperature.
