  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 375 mL
  • 1 cup icing sugar 250 mL
  • 1/3 cup Fry's* Cocoa 75 mL
  • 1 cup butter softened, 250 mL
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds toasted, 125 mL

Chocolate glaze:

  • 1/4 cup Fry's* Cocoa 50 mL
  • 3 tbsp Water 45 mL
  • 2 tbsp butter 30 mL
  • 2 tsp corn syrup 10 mL
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla 2 mL
  • 1 cup icing sugar 250 mL


  • 2 tbsp chopped almonds ground or finely, toasted, 30 mL
  • 1 cup icing sugar 250 mL
  • Garnish:
  • 2 tbsp ground or finely chopped almonds toasted, 30 mL


  • Preheat oven to 325 F (160 C). Stir flour with icing sugar and Fry's* Cocoa until well combined. Reserve. Cream butter in a large mixing bowl until light. Gradually blend in reserved dry ingredients. Stir in almonds until well combined.
  • Using about 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, shape the dough into crescent shapes. Do not flatten. Place crescents on a greased or parchment lined baking tray and refrigerate for at least 5 minutes.
  • Bake chilled cookies for 12 to 15 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool completely on a rack.
  • Glaze:
  • Stir Fry's* Cocoa with water, butter and corn syrup in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring, over medium-low heat until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Beat in icing sugar until mixture is smooth and satiny. Spread glaze over cool cookies. Sprinkle evenly with almonds.
  • Set cookies aside until the glaze sets, about 1 hour.
