3.Stir chocolate in a small heatproof bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water until smooth (don’t let water touch base of bowl). Pour into a heatproof jug.
4.Dip the end of one stick into the chocolate, then push it about halfway into a ball of cake. Return to tray. Repeat with remaining sticks and balls of cake. Freeze for about 5 minutes to set.
5.Meanwhile, toast almonds, by stirring them over medium heat in a medium frying pan, until golden brown. Transfer to a small heatproof bowl; cool.
