I Heart Chocolate. Dark Chocolate. Milk Chocolate. Chocolate-Covered/Smothered Anything! Chocolate is my true love:)
I also love almonds, but chocolate and almonds is truly a heavenly match. Have you tried the Cocoa-Dusted Almonds from Trader Joe’s? Um, well, they are AMAZING! I had a slight addiction to them, and found myself polishing off the entire bag in a day! Oops.
(Glazed with Agave)
I decided since I was going to single-handedly put Trader Joe’s Cocoa Almonds out of stock, I decided to make my very own. It would also save me some trips to the store to stock up on these addictive chocolatey nuts.
Almonds are a great source of energy, and they are of my favorite snacks. I always have a stash of almonds hanging around the house, and grab a handful when I am feeling hungry or need a bump of energy. But plain ole’ almonds can get a little boring.
If you are in an almond snacking slump you must try this recipe. It adds a little dash of sweetness and burst of chocolatey goodness. You will be impressed!
You can whip these babies up in under 10 minutes, and it only takes 3 ingredients. That’s it!
(HOT out of the oven!)
Hot Chocolate Dusted Almonds
These addictive sweet and chocolate roasted almonds will be your new favorite snack.
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1/4 cup agave
- 1 package hot chocolate mix or cocoa power
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder optional- to make them extra chocolatey
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
Toss the almonds into a bowl and mix in the agave. Stop to coat all the almonds evenly.
Transfer the coated almonds to a parchment-lined cookie sheet and spread them out.
Last them in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 8 minutes. Check them every few minutes to make sure they do not burn.
Remove the almonds, and transfer them back to the bowl. While they are hot mix in the hot chocolate powder and cocoa (or just cocoa). Stir to ensure they are all coated evenly.
You can leave them in the bowl to cool (some may stick together), or spread them back out on the parchment to cool.
Wait a few minutes, them snack away!
