Chocolate Covered Almonds

Chocolate Covered Almonds

Before Christmas I saw Tessa’s recipe for paleo dark chocolate nut and fruit clusters.  I adapted the recipe a little and made them for a couple of family gatherings.  These chocolate covered almonds and cherries were a real hit.

This recipe is super easy.  With just a few ingredients you can put together a great party snack in no time!

Chocolate Covered Almonds
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 2 cups whole almonds
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips
  • unsweetened coconut
  • sea salt
  1. Toast the almonds by placing them on a baking sheet and putting them in a 350° oven for about 10 minutes. This enhances the flavor.
  2. In a microwave safe dish that is large enough to hold the chocolate, almonds, and cherries, melt the chocolate chips according to package instructions.
  3. Add the almonds and cherries to the melted chocolate and stir to coat.
  4. Drop spoonfuls of the almonds and cherries onto a wax paper lined baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt and unsweetened coconut.

    I don’t know why but clustering the almonds, and adding both cherries and the coconut makes the idea of the trouble of CCAs a lot more bearable with short time. And I do have a lot of almonds hanging around the house. Thanks for a great idea!
