    to Kiranerys: When putting cinnamon and sugar on almonds you must first coat them in beaten egg whites. (a little added protein). Just whip up with a fork for a minute to break it up. Sprinkle cinnamon mix and bake in oven or cook on the stove while stirring. I am not sure of time and temp. - 11/12/09

    I also wondered how the cocoa powder and sweetener would stick to the almonds. I used fat free cooking spray (like Pam) and Truvia instead of Splenda. The cocoa gives an intense chocolate flavor, but doesn't overwhelm the almond, and it's not too sweet. You can toast them for a few minutes too! - 8/1/10

    This recipe take a wholesome food like almonds and make it very unhealthy by adding "splenda" to it. Please, avoid splenda and ALL similar sweeteners because they have devastating effects on the human body. - 6/27/10

    If you don't want to use artificial sweeteners you can adapt the recipe with real sugar.

  • These were good but I am a chocolate lover and these didn't have a strong chocolate taste. They are good for a snack but I actually prefer plain almonds toasted to these (they smell like popcorn and bring out an almonds amazing flavor, just put in toaster oven on 350 for a few minutes!) - 11/19/09

  • Not enough chocolate for me. I had to look around to figure out how to prepare this. I added a tablespoon of water and shook with cocoa and splenda in a baggie then baked at 350 for 15 minutes until "dried out". We had them at a SP taste test party. Good but not much different to plain almonds. - 11/16/09

  • I love this! I'll use just a little bit less cocoa next time, as it was just a bit much to me, but they're awesome! I separated into snack baggies fora grab and go, and so that I don't overdo it. ;) - 11/14/09

  • Does the cocoa powder stay stuck to the almonds? I tried to make cinnamon sugar almonds like I saw in the store by just sprinkling cinnamon and splenda on raw almonds and it just didn't stick and taste like the store bought ones. Wondering if the cocoa powder is different. - 11/12/09

  • thanks for the great recipe. Almonds are natural fat fighters too. Use some really good cocoa with lots of flavonals (sp?) I will be using stevia instead of splenda. not a fan of artificial or modified sweetners. - 11/12/09
