Cocoa Roasted Almonds

Cocoa Roasted Almonds
Christopher Mohs



1 lb. raw almonds
3 tbls. vegetable oil
1/4 cup Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix (sweetened)


Place the raw almonds on a sheet pan, drizzle the vegetable oil over the almonds and toss so they are well coated.  Then dust with hot cocoa mix (dry do not actually make the hot cocoa).  Toss more until almonds are well coated.  Make sure almonds are spread evenly in one layer on sheet pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.  You will want to stir after 5 minutes and 8 minutes.  You’ll know they are done when you can smell the cocoa and the nuttyness of the almonds strongly but not burnt.  Remove from oven and place almonds on paper towels to cool.
