Default Flavored Almonds

Last week I bought these flavored 100 calorie packs of almonds in walmart and the family loved them. I thought I would make them more SB friendly and cheaper One was cocoa the other plain (but had some onion powder in them which I was not overly fond of).

I saw the pecan recipe above which sounded great - has anyone adjusted that for almonds? Also - I wanted to add some cocoa in there to make chocolate dusted almonds - anyone try that?

This is the recipe I use. I've used walnuts, almonds, pecans & cashews....they've turned out great!

Great idea! I purchased some prepackaged almonds once, when I was in transit and really needed a snack but usually try to stay away from "salty fixes". I'm going to check your recipe, Jersey Girl.
