Oro Cacao

Oro Cacao is Spanish for “gold cocoa” which is what you get when you mix the best almonds in the world with deep dark cocoa, sugar, and salt.  Marcona almonds from Spain are sometimes referred to as the “Queen of Almonds” because they are sweeter, richer, and rounder than the California variety.

In Spain, macrona almonds are usually blanched to remove the outer skin and then sold in bulk or packaged. Traditionally, Spaniards carefully sauté the nuts in hot olive oil until the nuts reach a light brown color and then drain the nuts on paper towels.  While warm, the nuts are sprinkled with salt and served as a snack or appetizer.
