Chocolate Almond Flatbread

This Chocolate Almond Flatbread is a fun way to end the night on a sweet note!

This Chocolate Almond Flatbread is a fun way to end the night on a sweet note!The other night, Laura and I pulled out the photos from our trip to Scotland a couple of years ago.  This was seriously one heck of an awesome trip, and it was fun reliving the memories via our photos.  We’ve been thinking about going back again either next year or the year after, so we enjoyed looking at our photos from the first trip!

For starters, Scots drive on the wrong side of the road.  And to make matters worse, the steering wheel in Scottish cars is also on the wrong side of the car.  Put those two together, and you’ve got a real challenge on your hands.  (I recognize that ‘wrong’ is relative here!)  I managed to get out of Glasgow fairly easily in our rental car…mainly because it was 6am on a Sunday.  As we made our way into a smaller town, I run straight over the sidewalk curb.  Like hard.  As in, I had to stop and look at the tires on the car because I was almost certain I managed to blow a tire 30 minutes into our trip.  (Somehow the car was unfazed.  It was a tank.)

This Chocolate Almond Flatbread is a fun way to end the night on a sweet note!We proceeded to spend the next 8 days touring up and down Scotland, and I seriously can’t wait to go back!  That is one amazing country, and the scenery is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.  I wanted to grab a photo of Glen Coe (seen in movies like Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the James Bond film Skyfall and Monty Python and the Holy Grail)…but remember that whole driving on the wrong side of the road thing?  Yeah, it was still the first day, and I didn’t dare pull off the side of the road!

Towards the end of the trip, we were making our way back towards Edinburgh to drop off the car…uh, I mean see this amazing city…when we saw a sign on the highway for the Clan McPherson museum.  I’m related to the McPhersons somewhere on my mother’s side of the family (my sister’s middle name is McPherson), so we decided to pull off and check out the museum.  After about 10 minutes, we found ourselves dead-ended in the middle of a field.  And there was no museum in sight.  I kid you not.  The road just ended in the middle of a field.  We decided to turn around and get back on the highway, but hopefully we can find that museum on our next trip!  (I suspect we either just missed a turn, or the sign was gone.  My vote is for the missing sign.)

No clue how this is related, but I saw this on a store window in Inverness. And it’s hilarious!

As Laura and I were sitting there scrolling through our Scotland photos, we had a glass of wine and pieces of this Chocolate Almond Flatbread.  Wait, Chocolate Almond Flatbread?  Yup!  And it’s as delicious as it sounds!  We love Flatout flatbreads around our house, and we particularly love their Artisan Pizza Thins.  They make for a great (and very easy) lunch or dinner depending on what toppings you add.  We’ve used those pizza thins to make everything from Thin Crust Breakfast Pizza to Blue Cheese and Roasted Grape Flatbread Pizzas to BBQ Chicken Flatbread Pizzas.  But I decided to take a sweet twist and use those flatbreads as the base for a dessert.  And, woah.  Just woah!

This Chocolate Almond Flatbread is a fun way to end the night on a sweet note!For this Chocolate Almond Flatbread, I created a “crust” by sprinkling sparkling sugar around the edges of the flatbread.  Then while those flatbreads were getting crispy in the oven, I melted some chocolate and caramels.  The melted chocolate got spread on top, followed by toasted almonds and then the Chocolate Almond Flatbread was finished off with a drizzle of caramel.  Let those bad boys cool off a bit, and you’ve got one delicious dessert!  Who knew flatbreads could be used in so many ways?  Breakfast.  Lunch.  Dinner.  Dessert.  Grab a pack of Flatout’s Artisan Thin Pizza Crusts, and you’re covered for all of the above!  (Click here to find Flatout products in a store near you.)

  1. Hi David! What’s not to love about dessert pizza? A sprinkling of flaked coconut wouldn’t hurt this a bit. Yes, I have a coconut obsession. 🙂

    1. Oooo…I like where you are going with that flaked coconut idea, Dorothy! Why didn’t I think of that?? I’m definitely doing that next time I make these! Maybe even toast the coconut up lightly, too. Yum!!

  2. One of my goals in life is to drive, even for just a few feet, in the UK. This strikes fear in the heart of everyone who’s ever been in a car while I’m behind the wheel, but maybe I could handle driving a few feet on a road that randomly dead ends in a field. You’ve given me hope today :). This flatbread sounds just divine! I the sprinkling of turbinado sugar under the chocolate!

    1. Hahaha…driving in the UK is definitely doable, but I have to admit that it was an adventure. It took 2 of us to get around Scotland. Me driving, and Laura reminding me constantly to look the “opposite” way for traffic. It’s a bit nuts…but it’s the only way to see some of the castles and out-of-the-way distilleries there! Thanks for the kind words, my friend! I hope you had a great weekend out there in P-town!

  3. Wow! Did you say chocolate Almond FLATBREAD? You never steer me in the wrong directions actually you’ve opened up my taste buds on many different occasions so I’m totally down to try out this mashup. I hope to visit Scotland sometime soon. I would get super turned around driving on the opposite side of the road. It would be a total disaster.

    1. This mashup is totally easy, too, Mary! I know you aren’t the biggest fan of wraps, but what if you take those wraps and toast ’em up first? And then cover ’em with chocolate and toasted almonds? 🙂 Also, Scotland is an amazing place to visit. Do put it on the short list! Hope you had a great weekend, my friend!

    1. We love travelling overseas! It does take quite a bit of advance planning and saving, but taking those “big trips” is one of our favorite things to do. The memories really do last a lifetime! 🙂 And, yes, this flatbread was super fun to make (and eat). Just toast it until crispy and then it’s a blank canvas for your own creation! Thanks so much, Dawn!!

  4. Firstly, this trip sounds amazing, and the photographs are so beautiful. You should definitely come back soon. Secondly, the terms “wrong” and “right” side of the road/car (Although I prefer the just left/right side) reminded me one fun story. My father, when being the captain would bring many things (from food to clothes) to Russia from his international trips. This was a normal practice since a) many things were not simply available (e.x. nothing imported until almost the beginning of the 90th with a few exceptions b) many of the available things were more expensive c) well, what woud you do in your spare time rather than some shopping during 5-6 month trips, David? So twice my dad bought a car abroad which was a common practice too. However, one of that car was manufactured in England, designed for the left-hand side traffic and thus with the steering wheel located on the right side. If this doesn’t sound funny to you, well, Russia has a right-hand side traffic so might have been quite awkward (but the parents loved this car and style of driving). And lastly, this chocolate caramel flatbread sounds fantastic too, David! Although I haven’t made any similar things yet, I feel this is my “sweet&savory” influence, am I right?

    1. Why thank you very much, Ben! We definitely do want to make it back to Scotland soon. We’re talking about planning a trip for either next year or the year after….we shall see! What a fun story about your Dad bringing English cars back to Russia. That sounds about as confusing as us trying to drive a car in Scotland! Once we got the hang of it, it was ok…but we had to keep reminding ourselves that we were on the opposite side of the road. It’s easy to slip back into “normal” driving! Also, I’m thinking you should totally experiment with some flatbreads! Toast ’em up, and then they’re just a blank canvas for your own creations. Perhaps some lavender-Irish cream creations? Haha! Thanks so much, my friend. I hope you had a great weekend!

  5. Your trip sounds so much fun David! The pictures look amazing and beautiful! You should definitely revisit Scotland soon, and also look for the museum :D. This dessert flatbread sounds delicious! I love the idea of using the eggwhite and sugar at the edges to give it a nice golden crispiness! Chocolate, toasted almonds and caramel, what’s not to love about it! And the best part is, it doesn’t hours to make this!!

    1. Oh, we absolutely loved Scotland! In fact, we’ve been talking about going back there either next year or the year after. We shall see! And I would love to find that darned clan museum on this trip…if we decide to rent a car again! 🙂 And you’re totally right about this flatbread. It’s super simple to make, and it’s a great sweet treat whenever you crave chocolate. (And let’s be honest, I’m always craving chocolate over here. Haha!) Thanks so much, Deepika!

  6. You’re making me want to visit Scotland! So cool that you have family history there. And I’m laughing at your driving story – I’ve never rented a car where the steering wheel is on the other side, and I can imagine that it takes awhile to get used to that.

    On another note, this flatbread sounds so good! It reminds me of the restaurant where my husband & I had our first date. It’s this very authentic Italian place, and one of their dessert options is always a sweet flatbread pizza. We had a pizza drizzled with Nutella one time & it was amazing!

    1. Oh, you should totally scout out a trip to Scotland, Nicole! It really is a gorgeous country! So the driving thing is a bit scary, but as long as you’ve got a good co-pilot in the seat next to you reminding you of how to drive on the “wrong” side of the road, then it’s totally doable.

      What a fun story about your first date! I say you should recreate that flatbread at home. Just toast it up, and then you’ve got a blank canvas for fun toppings…like Nutella! Mmmm…Nutella. 🙂

  7. Oh, yes! Bread and Chocolate – one of my favorite combinations! We have a local chocolatier who makes a bar called “Bread and Chocolate” that is so divine, you will want to buy a case of it. It’s a match made in heaven! I love your vacation photos – I’m really wanting to go to Scotland (and Ireland, for that matter), I understand it’s one of the best places in the world even if they do drive on the wrong side.

    1. Bread and Chocolate? That sounds like such a fun flavor, Laura! And after snacking on these chocolate almond flatbreads, I can definitely say that it would be an addicting flavor! 🙂 And, yes, you should put Scotland on your travel plans for sometime in the future. We haven’t been to Ireland yet, but that one is on our list for sure, too! Thanks so much, my friend!

  8. I headed over to your delicious blueberry scones (from those biscuits) and realized you made them awhile ago and then I got distracted by this flatout bread! How genius is that sprinkling of sugar on flatout to take it to a whole other divinely decadent dessert level! And you threw chocolate into the mix! GAH!!! So so insanely wonderful!
    And wait – you drove while in Scotland?! Dude, my hats off to ya! While driving around in London with my uncle and cousins I almost had a heart attack thinking they were turning into oncoming traffic! Crazy about that museum! Yes, Lil Shashi and I often look through our old trip albums and photo books – in fact that’s one of the reasons packing up our photo bookshelf took so long! Hopefully unpacking it next week will go quicker! Yup – closing is on for next week – hopefully!
