Three Fun Facts About Almonds

  1. Almonds are found all over the United States, but the almond tree is actually native to the Mediterranean and Middle East. Almonds have been cultivated in that part of the world for over 3000 years. There is even a mention of almond trees in the first book of the Bible!
  2. Scientists have found almonds to be associated with many health benefits. One study found that participants that ate tree nuts, such as almonds, at least twice a week, had around 15% lower risk developing of cardiovascular disease and about 20% lower risk of developing coronary heart disease. [1]
  3. Almonds can be transformed into many different nut-based products. Some of the most popular for people following a Keto diet are almond milk, almond flour, and almond butter.

Four Variations on Basic Chocolate Covered Almonds

One of the best parts about this recipe is that it can be a blank canvas for flavors. With some thoughtful additions, you can make many different varieties of chocolate covered almonds and banish boring snacks for good.

  1. KISS – Keep it simple: salt! A little salt goes a long way in this recipe. Sprinkle a pinch of kosher or other large grain salt over your almonds before refrigerating.
  2. A taste of Europe – When I visited Prague, I bought little bags of chocolate almonds from the corner shop. They were the best almonds I had ever tasted, and the secret ingredient was cinnamon. Add 1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the sweetener before mixing with the chocolate.
  3. Citrus surprise – What goes together better than chocolate and almonds? Chocolate and orange of course! Add a teaspoon of orange zest or a few drops of orange extract to the chocolate before adding the almonds.
  4. Sweet and spicy – If you like your snacks with a kick, add ½ teaspoon of cayenne to the chocolate. If you’re feeling fancy, you can try other chilies too. Aleppo and chipotle peppers both pair well with chocolate.
