  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (60-70% cocoa)

  • 1 pinch sea salt

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the dark chocolate chips with the coconut oil.
  4. Microwave the mixture on high in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth (about 1-2 minutes).
  5. Remove the almonds from the oven and let them cool slightly.
  6. Dip each almond into the melted chocolate, using a fork to shake off excess chocolate.
  7. Place each chocolate-covered almond back on the lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.
  8. Chill in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set, approximately 30 minutes.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Try milk chocolate or white chocolate for a different flavor profile.
  • Garnishing Options: Sprinkle a bit of crushed pistachios or drizzle melted white chocolate for a decorative touch.
  • Cooking Tips: Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate if you don’t want to use a microwave. Be sure the almonds are fully cooled before dipping to avoid soggy nuts!
