Ingredients Needed

These dark chocolate covered almonds taste rich and decadent, but they are shockingly easy and require a few basic ingredients! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Chocolate. Use your favorite type of chocolate that melts well. For Keto, use sugar-free chocolate chips. For Paleo and Vegan, use Vegan dark chocolate chips. If you have white chocolate that melts well, that can also be used.
  • Almonds. Feel free to use raw or roasted almonds. 
  • Sea salt. A little sea salt on top balances the sweetness and adds the perfect salty flavor!

How to Make Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds

These chocolate almonds are so easy to whip up and even easier to eat!

Please see the recipe card for the full, printable recipe with all of the details.

  1. Melt chocolate. Place the chocolate in a medium bowl and melt either in a double boiler or in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until fully melted.
  2. Coat the almonds. One at a time, dip the almonds into the chocolate and roll to fully coat. Pick up the almond with a fork and tap the fork on the side of the bowl to drip off excess chocolate. Transfer the almond to a parchment-lined baking sheet, using a toothpick to slide it off of the fork. Repeat until all almonds are covered. Sprinkle with a little flaky sea salt, if you’d like.
  3. Freeze to set. Place in the freezer to harden the chocolate and ENJOY!

Tips for Recipe Success

  • Roasted almonds. For the most flavor, I recommend roasting the almonds. It’s very simple to do. Follow this guide for how to roast almonds.
  • Melting chocolate. If your chocolate is not becoming very smooth when melting, stir in a drop or two of coconut oil to the melted chocolate.
  • Double batch. Highly recommend making a double batch because every time I make these chocolate covered almonds, half of them mysteriously disappear!

Recipe Variations

  • Make clusters. Instead of spreading out each individual almond on your baking sheet, clump them together in small piles or pour all the chocolate and almonds into a thin sheet, then freeze and break apart in chunks, once set.
  • Add spice. If you’d like a little kick of heat, mix a pinch of cayenne pepper into the melted chocolate or for a bit of smokiness, use chili powder.
  • Citrus. Add about 1 teaspoon orange zest for a lovely citrus flavor.
  • Nuts. You can make this recipe with other nuts. Pecans, cashews, macadamia nuts or peanuts all work great!

Storage

Store the chocolate almonds in an airtight container on the countertop or in the fridge, if you aren’t eating them all within a few days. You can also store them in the freezer for several months.
