Cover a baking tray
with baking paper. Mix the almonds with the honey and form 12 little
heaps on the paper. Sprinkle the icing sugar on top. Bake them at 180
degrees Celsius in the oven, approximately
8-10 minutes, but watch out that the sugar does not burn. If they look
hopelessly flattened, don't worry, just allow them to cool off a little
bit and shape them back into heaps with your fingers and a teaspoon.
Allow them to cool down completely. Melt the chocolate and pour this
on top. Only eat them when they are completely cool.
Cut the peel off the orange in long strips. Bring
1 liter water to the boil, add the orange peel and the tea and let it
simmer for five minute. Pour the tea through a sieve, stir in the sugar
and put the orange peel back in. Chill the tea completely and serve
with ice cubes.
