You might have thought that sweet and salty was the best flavor combination ever, but that is probably because you have never tried sweet and smoky! These Smokehouse Almond and Dark Chocolate Bites have the perfect amount of sweet and smoky and in the words of my husband tonight, “These are so addicting!”.
Yes, football season is upon us and as I have said before, there are those who love the game and love the snacks and others who don’t care for the game but love the snacks so they are willing to put up with it. I’m slowly trying to get myself into that first category, but I guess I’m not doing such a great job considering my husband is out in the living room watching football while I am in the office writing this post! I guess I have next weekend to practice enjoying it more!
I do love football season for bringing friends together around a large TV and an even larger snack table though. Savory snacks like chips and dip and pizza are a must for football games, but I think it is important to cater to everyone’s sweet tooth as well because really, no one can say no to chocolate. These chocolate bites are so easy to make and only require two ingredients: dark chocolate and these delicious Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds. All you gotta do is chop the almonds, melt the chocolate, spread the chocolate into small discs and then toss on some almonds and voila: you have the most delicious and addicting sweet and smoky snack bites!Print
- 1/2 cup Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds, chopped
- 1 (10 ounce) package dark chocolate chips
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or over a double boiler until just melted. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate at a time onto the parchment paper and use the spoon to level out the chocolate and form into a nice circle. Immediately top chocolate disc with a small handful of chopped almonds. Re-peat until chocolate is gone.
- Refrigerate bites until chocolate has hardened, about 20 minutes.
