These 3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds with a cocoa dusting are a homemade treat that are perfect for gifting or for enjoying all to yourself. Use quality dark chocolate to smother your roasted almonds. This recipe is dairy-free and vegan.

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped dark chocolate (about 2 3.5-ounce dark chocolate bars)
  • 1 1/2 cups roasted whole almonds
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder


  1. Line a small baking sheet or plate with parchment paper. Use a baking sheet or plate that will fit inside your freezer.
  2. Place the chopped dark chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Melt the chocolate in the double boiler or in 30 second increments in the microwave, stirring the chocolate every 30 seconds until completely melted and smooth.
  4. Remove the chocolate from the double boiler or the microwave. Stir the almonds into the melted chocolate, ensuring that they are all coated with the chocolate.
  5. Use a spoon or fork to transfer the coated almonds to your baking sheet or plate. Place the sheet or plate in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to set.
  6. Transfer the chocolate covered almonds to a bowl and toss with the cacao powder.
  7. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


  1. If you are on a vegan or dairy-free diet, be sure to look for bars of dark chocolate that do not contain dairy.
  2. Dark chocolate is usually at least 70% cacao. Don’t use 100% cacao bars (or any higher than 80% cacao) as the chocolate will not be sweet enough.
