Chocolate Drizzled Almonds

Almonds + dark chocolate = love. It’s as simple as that.

In my youth, I used to pop chocolate-covered almonds regularly. In those days, I didn’t give a second thought to how much sugar or calories I was racking up. Now that I’m older and wiser, I’ve discovered I can enjoy this timeless combination by drizzling dark chocolate onto unsalted almonds.

A recent study showed that eating nuts can help with managing your weight and lower your risk of dying early. The key, of course, is portion control. One-quarter cup a day seems to do the trick.

And if you need another reason to enjoy almonds and dark chocolate, you may want to know that February is Heart Month. What better way to celebrate than to enjoy two heart-healthy foods.

Chocolate Drizzled Almonds

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsalted almonds
  • 1 square semi-sweet chocolate (28 grams) – I used Baker’s chocolate

Instructions

  1. Lay almonds in a single layer on a sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe dish in 30 second spurts, stirring in between sessions (mine took one minute in total).
  3. Using a fork, drizzle melted chocolate on almonds.
  4. Let the chocolate air dry (approx. an hour).
  5. Store in an airtight jar. Enjoy!

Package it up in a Mason jar for a hostess gift with a special touch. I took this to a neighbourhood party and got rave reviews.

What’s your favourite chocolate and nut combination?
