How to Make Flavored Almonds

Save

The almonds that people consume across the globe is the fruit of the almond tree, and is a relative of the peach, apricot and cherry trees. Almonds are rich in magnesium, potassium and contain the cholesterol-lowering monounsaturated fat. Coating almonds with cocoa will enhance the nut's already sweet flavor, although it will add a few calories to this otherwise healthy snack.
