Video From the Tropics: Chocolate Snowballs with Almonds (en/es) edit

We love the land and the many gifts Mother and Father nature share with us, specially in the Tropics. After traveling the world and experiencing the wonders and learning one step at the time, we feel proud for always coming back to our country Panama to share the bounty. Just share what you know and love, after that...everything will make total sense. It maybe is your purpose in life or just a hobby, but just do it and you will feel reinvented and well loved.

It feels fantastic to me, but...how about you, how do you feel when you share your love?

Oh! Regarding the video, it is show #6, cooking segment of "Living Made Simple in Panama." It has been really exciting to work with Aimee Arnold de Lindo. Now you will be able to learn how to prepare "Chocolate Snowball Cookies with Almonds." Let us know how do you like them!

There will be many good things to come, we will keep you posted. Its a promise!

Have a fantastic and extra tasty rest of the week!

Wonderful video, Melissa! The cookies look absolutely delicious. I wish I had my own cocoa from the farm.

Hi Melissa, I really enjoyed making the cookies and they turned out well.  I’ll probably make them a bit smaller next time though & I used ground hazelnuts instead of almonds.
However, on the subject of preparing chocolate, I raise my cacao & have always done the fermentation method & drying (in my oven with only the pilot light).  I went out and got a dehydrator to try this new idea.  It was on 24 hours and still not dry.  That is an unacceptable use of energy.  I tried to finish the process on racks in the oven, but they were still sticky after a week & I threw them out.  What is missing here?
Aloha, Claudia in Hawaii
