Sugar Free Cocoa Dusted Almonds

Sugar Free Cocoa Dusted Almonds

I needed a snack that was sugar free. I was craving chocolate covered almonds, but didn’t want to run to the store looking for them. These sugar fee cocoa dusted almonds did the trick for me and I already had all the ingredients in my pantry. I will say if you are not a dark chocolate fan this is not for you. But I am a dark chocolate fan so I loved it. If you are a dark chocolate fan you’ll have a yummy snack in minutes.

Prep time: 3-5 minutes     Cook time: 10 minutes

  • 2 tbsp. butter, salted
  • 2 cups plain almonds
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 Pyure or any powdered sweetener substitute
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Combine cocoa powder, sweetener and a pinch of salt to a bowl. Mix ingredients together well and place to the side.
  2. Melt butter on medium heat in pan.
  3. Add almonds to pan and toss, making sure almonds are coated with butter.
  4. Add butter coated almonds to the cocoa and sweetener mix. Toss almonds in mix making sure all almonds are coated with cocoa and sweetener mix and enjoy!

You can say I was on a sweet tooth fix the day I made these because I even dipped these almonds in a sugar free whip cream/cream cheese dip. My husband loves taking these to work to snack on. My kids love snacking on these when I won’t let them eat much right before dinner.
