We are a pretty health conscious family. But, even people who enjoy eating healthy meals love yummy snacks. One of my personal favorite treats is dark chocolate covered almonds. Love them! I get them as a treat for the children, of course. But, I cannot resist partaking of the yummy goodness with them! But, you may have noticed that dark chocolate is not cheap and dark chocolate covered almonds are really not cheap. So, I thought I’d see if I could make a less expensive and healthier version of what we buy in the bulk section of our local grocery store. They are BETTER than the ones we buy! I love that they are easy to make, better for us because we know exactly what’s goes into making them and, of course, that they are cheaper! This has just opened a whole new world to me…uh, I mean, us! 😉
Here’s the quick, easy recipe.
8oz dark chocolate (at least 72%)
3/4 cup whole roasted, salted almonds
1/4 cup coconut oil
Directions: Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
In a double boiler, slowly melt chocolate and coconut oil until almost smooth.
Add almonds and stir until chocolate is melted.
Spoon mixture onto parchment paper and spread out.
Let cool in the refrigerator for about 45 minutes.
Flip onto a cutting board and cut or break into desired pieces.
Refrigerate pieces (or freeze) until ready to eat.
