Sugar almonds are enjoyed throughout the year, with great importance over Easter. They are a symbol of fertility and renewal, similar to that of the Easter egg.

2 cup almond kernels (with skin)
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of water poorly filled
1 tsp of chocolate powder

In a pot, bring all ingredients to the heat for half an hour (stirring occasionally). Lower the heat when the mixture is thicker and keep it low until the sugar is entirely white. Keep stirring and wrapping the almonds. Increase the heat so that the sugar begins to melt and turns into caramel. Wrap the almonds in the caramel and place them on a tray.
