Yes, you read that right. We took all the deliciousness you’ve come to know and love from some of the best indulgent desserts and made it healthier. BUT we didn’t sacrifice taste! This sweet treat truly tastes like a famous candy recipe you can make at home. It’s such a wonderful combination of sweet, salty, and bitter. We even like to make this recipe as a party favor for our dinner parties and hand out small bags.

Try different versions of the recipe. If you feel like indulging, dip in a milk chocolate ganache and top with coconut while the chocolate is drying. You can even make a swirled dip by melting peanut butter chips with the chocolate chips. As for the almonds used, we’ve also tried this recipe using peanuts, cashews, and macadamia nuts. All of the variations came out delicious, with their own unique flavors.
