Chocolate covered almonds are the best fix for a sweet craving! Here’s how to make this easy dessert or snack at home.


  • 1 cup roasted whole almonds
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips (like Guittard or Ghirardelli — about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon refined coconut oil
  • Flaky sea salt, optional


  1. Prepare baking sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Place a separate sheet of parchment paper next to the baking sheet. 
  2. Melt the chocolate: Place the chocolate chips into a heat proof bowl. (Make sure it’s completely dry or the chocolate will seize.) Microwave on High power for 30 seconds, then stir. Microwave another 30 seconds, stir, and 30 seconds more and stir. At this point it should be mostly melted with a few chunks: keep stirring until all the chocolate chunks disappear and the chocolate is perfectly smooth. Add the coconut oil. (Keep stirring if it doesn’t fully melt. You can try another 10 second burst and stir again, but you’ll want to avoid getting the chocolate too hot. Read more at How to Microwave Chocolate.)
  3. Add the almonds: Add the almonds and stir them until fully coated. Then dump them onto the separate parchment sheet, leaving any excess chocolate in the bowl. Use a fork to pull them off of the sheet one at a time, shaking the fork to let excess chocolate drip off, then place on the parchment-lined baking sheet. (Tip: Doing this with a partner or friend makes it quicker!) If desired, sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  4. Refrigerate: Refrigerate the tray for 20 minutes until the chocolate hardens. Serve immediately or store refrigerated for 1 month.
