I only grew to love chocolate covered nuts when I became an adult even
though I've been a huge chocolate fan for as long as I can remember.
True, I enjoyed peanut M&M's as a kid, but other than that, I preferred my chocolate nut-free.
Now that I am older and wiser I have matured my tastes to really savor the delicious combination of sweet chocolate and crunchy nuts and the various flavors that each kind of nut adds to the palate. :)
In other words, these days I enjoy my chocolate almost any way I can get it!
There really are
so many different combinations and varieties that there are always new flavor
combos to experience and learn to appreciate.
I guess it's true that everything tastes better when covered in chocolate! :)
If you're eager to try chocolate dipped nuts, you can order for yourself or someone you love an indulgent gift of chocolate nuts from one of my favorite chocolate sellers online.
You can buy in bulk or just enough for a generous sampling...
Let me make a suggestion for a wonderful chocolate party favor.
Order your favorite chocolate covered nuts in bulk from the Candy Warehouse or from one of the suppliers above. Second, pick up some favor bags and ties at Candyland Crafts and create your own unique chocolate party favor bags.
Your party favors will be a hit!
Of course, there's always the option to make your own chocolate peanuts at home. If you have the ingredients on hand, you can get started right away with one of our simple chocolate nut recipes.
You can enjoy chocolate covered peanuts in a number of different ways. First of all, you can stick to the basic chocolate and peanut combination.
Of course, there are so many different kinds of nuts to choose from. You can try cashews (my favorite), almonds, pecans, walnuts, or macadamia nuts, just to name a few.
Then the fun begins. I happen to love caramel, too. Add caramel to the mix and I'm a goner! Remember the chocolate turtles? You can even learn to make your own.
And what about marshmallows, or dried fruit? There seems to be no end to the combinations you can come up with for delighting your taste-buds. Use your imagination.
To get you started, I've gathered a selection of chocolate covered nut recipes for you to put to the test. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.
