Chocolate Covered Nuts with several types of nut clusters including chocolate covered almonds, our most popular chocolate dipped nut.
A generous array of chocolate covered nuts are hand-dipped. This freshly roasted nut variety is dipped in our smooth American-made chocolate. An all-nuts selection of assorted chocolate clusters and fork dipped Brazil nuts. Selections can include milk chocolate peanut clusters, dark chocolate cashew clusters, salted pecans in milk chocolate and the most famous of all, chocolate-covered almonds.
The Best Chocolate Covered Almonds are hand dipped and this is why: California NonPareil Sweet Almonds are hand-dipped in gourmet chocolate. Each cluster is irregular shaped and thick so you can sink your teeth into them. Most chocolate almonds sold are panned - the smooth round almonds that have a carnauba wax, a confectioner's glaze, coating. Those machined panned glazed almonds are easy to make and do not require specialty handling the way our fresh almond clusters require. Freshly hand dipped chocolate covered almonds require a trained chocolatier to use their individual technique and experience chocolate tempering the coating, dipping the clusters and then lining them up for cooling. Once cooled, the chocolate clusters are packed into individual candy cups and then into gift boxes.
