step 1

Start by adding the almonds in a baking tray and roasting them for 10 mins at 200ºC.

step 2

Add the dark chocolate, vanilla extract and orange zest in a heat proof bowl and place it on top of a saucepan with boiling water to melt everything (bain-marie).

step 3

Add the roasted almonds, cranberries and melted chocolate in a large bowl, and stir them until everything is well combined.

step 4

Cut the halve in large cubes and add it to the chocolate mixture. Fold everything together until you cover each halva piece with chocolate, without breaking the cubes.

step 5

Lay down two sheets of cling film (or parchment paper) and pour the chocolate mixture in the centre.

step 6

Fold the cling film slightly to cover the mixture and using your hands, form it into a cylinder shape.

step 7

Twist the cling film excess on both sides to compact the mixture and form a log, almost like a salami.

step 8

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
