    Eh. Not the best thing you could eat, but not the worst either. Enjoy some and don't beat yourself up over it.

      I assume the soy lecithin is no good, but I figure if I have these on hand for when I get that sweet tooth, it can't be TOO bad. Main thing is just not eating more than 6 or 7.

        Yeah, if you can avoid scarfing handful after handful...not so bad.

        If not, bad enough.

        Don't sweat it.

          The soy lecithin should be such a small amount that it shouldn't hurt.

          It's a bit weird that there seems to be more chocolate than almonds in this though.

            I wonder what "food glaze (pure)" is.

              Make your own!

              Use raw almonds. Stir up some chocolate in a pan (high % of cacao). Pour it over the almonds. Job done.

                Yeah, but almonds and dark chocolate separately.

                  You could mix chocolate with some coconut oil and then dip the almonds in that. Chill in the fridge for a bit. Yum.

                    I make my own dark chocolate almond bark, and hazelnut bark, and cashew bark at christmas time. OMG it's the best thing EVER!!! (mostly because I know what's in them, and control the amount of sugar!)

                      Hi lil,

                      Can you give me the recipe of your almonds covered with dark chocolate? Do you calculate the calories as well? My main issue is when I cook, it's so hard calculating calories per serving...

                        Use this: Recipe Calculator

                        It's awesome for calculating recipes! Very simple and easy to use.

                        As for almonds/hazelnuts/macadamia nuts etc covered with dark chocolate:

                        Melt dark chocolate with a couple tbsp of one of these: heavy cream/coconut cream/butter/coconut oil
                        optional dash of vanilla extract

                        Stir in nuts
                        pour into greased parchment/wax paper lined dish and smooth flat
                        chill until hard. Break into peices and enjoy! Mmmmmmm!

                        The other one is 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 2 tbsp of honey, 1 tbsp vanilla, and nuts. Mix everything but the nuts until smooth, fold in the nuts and spread and chill. It will cut more like hard fudge.

                          dump the almonds, get yourself some dark chocolate & macadamia nuts & make your own. Seriously, it takes 5 mins.
