I really like doing recipes that remind me of my childhood. It is not that I don't like cooking the others, but it I find it especially fun to make them, as it did when the tigreton that I so much enjoyed preparing for my son. To these petit ecolier of almonds that I bring today it happens the same: they remind me of my childhood.
As always the recipe is not the traditional one. They are cookies with ground almonds, which together with chocolate, create a delicious special touch. They are not difficult and these were beautiful with Christmas chocolate molds, so here they are. Take advantage of these special days to make them with your sons, nephews or neighbors. You can use any chocolate mold, and even placed on a piece of chocolate on top. The effort is worthwhile. You will love these delicious chocolate pills.
