Queso De Bola Crisps With Chocolate & Sea Salt

Procedure:

  1. Preheat oven to 350oF. Line two large baking sheets with wax or baking paper.
  2. Toss cheese and almonds together in a bowl. Form 12 mounds of cheese mixture on each prepared baking sheet, spacing these 3 inches apart. Using the back of the spoon, press down on each mound to form a 1/4 inch thick circle. Place one baking sheet at a time in middle oven rack.
  3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and let crisps cool on baking sheets. Once crisps are completely cooled, line a baking sheet with wax or baking paper.
  4. Toss chocolate with oil in a small bowl. Set bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  5. Dip about one-third to one-half of each crisp into melted chocolate then hold a few seconds above chocolate then place on lined baking sheet. Sprinkle some sea salt over chocolate. Let chocolate set before serving. Chill to set if desired.
