How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth. (Psalm 119:103)
Does including the word sinless in the title of this candy make you less interested in this recipe or more interested? Do we somehow associate really decadent chocolate candy with naughtiness?I'm here to debunk the theory that decadence equals sinfulness when it comes to chocolates! Click To Tweet
After writing this full post yesterday, I went on Facebook LIVE this morning to demonstrate the quick and easy process for making this candy. It really does take only three minutes to stir everything together. Surprisingly quick!
Please excuse the brief camera debacle at the beginning. It’s been a long time since the last time I made a FB LIVE video. But, it was fun, and I really enjoyed pretending you were there with me. 🙂
The beauty of this recipe is that you can make your candy as chocolaty as you wish. All you need is roasted and salted almonds, sugar-free chocolate chips, and a tish of coconut oil.

You can buy a package of roasted and salted, or you can roast raw whole almonds yourself. (That’s what usually I do.) When making your own, you have the option of using a really good oil (like coconut oil).
Place your 16-oz. bag of roasted and salted almonds in the freezer overnight or several hours before making this candy. (Actually, it’s best to keep nuts in the freezer at all times to keep them from going rancid. Then, they are ready for candy-making at any time – grin.)
You see in this picture below that my bag reads raw almonds, but this is a bag I roasted immediately when returning from the grocer. I really should label the bag as “roasted”, but I don’t pass up an excuse for quick taste tests. 🙂
Melt 1/3 cup chocolate chips (I recommend Trim Healthy Mama Chocolate Chips* – Stevia sweetened and very tasty) with 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil (optional) over low heat. Stir continuously, as the chips melt quickly and may begin to burn. On my gas stove, it only takes 30 seconds to melt the chips completely.
Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 cup of toasted, salted almonds.
When fully coated with chocolate, pour them into a wax paper lined dish. My dish is small – 5’x7′.
Pop into the freezer and check after 20-30 minutes. It doesn’t take long to freeze the chocolates since the almonds are already frozen. Break chocolates apart, store in a freezable container. Keep them in the freezer, and remove any time you want a chocolaty snack!
3-Minute Sinless Chocolate Almond Candy
You can make a clean and healthy chocolate sensation in a snap with this recipe!
- 3/4 cup roasted, salted almonds (frozen)
- 1/3 cup Stevia-sweetened chocolate chips (your choice, but I use THM brand)
- 1/2 tsp coconut oil
Heat chocolate chips and coconut oil, stirring constantly until melted - takes about 30 seconds.
Add almonds and stir to coat completely with chocolate.
Spread into a wax-paper-lined dish (I use a 5"x7") until nuts are in a single layer on the bottom of dish. Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
Remove from freezer and break almonds apart. Store in an air-tight container in the freezer. Ready for snacking when the chocolate craving hits!
Warning: No matter how big a batch you make, you’ll wish you made more! That’s a pretty harmless regret, if you ask me.
So, would you like me to share recipes on Facebook LIVE more often? I can notify you in advance if you want to be there when I record – which is way more fun and less nerve-racking with you actually there with me. (Sister embracer support is so nice!)
Now you have a wonderfully healthy alternative to those chocolates you received for Valentine’s Day. Will these treats help you resist the sugar-laden chocolates? It works for me, and I am thankful for this treat!
