I just discovered your blog and I love it. I think we all need to pay much closer attention to our kids’ eating habits and nutrition. Have you heard of a Bear Balanced Belly? It’s a new health nutrition toy that helps both kids and parents think more about what we out into our bodies and my kids love using it. Check it out http://www.bearybalanced.com. I got one for each of my children to help us start the school year off on a healthy start!

We recently discovered cocoa almonds – but the store bought ones from Emerald. They are so yummy and have only 1g of sugar, but I think I would love the homemade version even more. Will definitely give it a try soon.

That is exactly why I tried to make these! We bought some of those emerald ones this summer and LOVED them! But, I couldn’t figure out how to do a powdery chocolate like they did, or how to get it to stick to the nuts. Any ideas?

If you like the taste of dark (like 100% chocolate) that you would like it like that for sure!
.. or you could reduce the sugar. It’s definitely a dessert though, and you still wouldn’t want to eat more than 1 ounce at a time!

Thank you Amy for an awesome recipe. We are pure vegetarians, hence can you suggest a replacement for egg in the recipe.

Would love to give this a go, my daughter loves her dark chocolate but could I substitute the egg as we are vegetarian ?? Thanks for sharing, your recipes are very inspiring!

@kara, Kinjal, and Soneshree- Although I’ve never tried it, you could see if a vegan butter would be enough to make the cocoa stick to your almonds.
If you do, please let me know how they turn out as many people want to know!!

3/4 cup granulated sugar??!!
Did I read that right?! That’s a lot of sugar!!! I am really surprised to find that much sugar in a recipe on this website !!
