Cocoa Dusted Almonds- Easy and SO Good

Cocoa-dusted-almondsHave you ever tried cocoa dusted almonds?  Oh. My.   I am in love.

They are easy to make and they are better than I expected them to be. You can find a plethora of Cocoa Dusted Almond recipes on Pinterest. I tried a recipe my friend told me over the phone. This was my first attempt so I have nothing to compare it to, nevertheless  I am calling it a success! Here’s how I made them:

About 1 tsp coconut oil
1 1/2 TBSP of unsweetened cocoa poweder
1 1/2 TBSP powdered sugar
1 cup Almonds (mine were salted, which makes them taste even better in my opinion)

Heat the oil on medium then add almonds. Stir them for 1-2 minutes just until they are coated in oil and warm. Put almonds in bowl. Sift cocoa powder and sugar over almonds and stir until they are all covered. Let them cool, then enjoy!

Store them in an air tight container. My friend said they would last for a week or two this way but I don’t think long term storage will be a problem in this house. 🙂
