So a can of plain roast almonds at my grocery store is $2.79, and the cocoa almonds, same weight, same brand is $4.79!

Does anyone know how to make them? How do you get the cocoa to stick?

Hi shh, my computer died and I lost all my bookmarks (along with everything else) and I forgot about this thread! Anyway, I found it again (Ms. Obvious is my middle name) and I'm going to try the 2nd recipe tomorrow. Low carb, low cal. I'll return and report.

They're done and cooled, and almost as good as the Emerald brand. I was surprised at how well the cocoa stuck to them. I used dutch process cocoa, and it's good, but next time I think I'll use the regular stuff to see if I can get just a little more chocolate flavor in them.

If anyone else is making them, I pretty much followed the recipe. I used butter flavored cooking spray just because that's what I had. Was out of Stevia so used half nutra sweet and half Sweet n Low. I eat low carb right now, so I only used 1 tsp corn starch, I will try none next time. I'm not sure what purpose it is supposed to serve. Used foil to line a big cookie sheet, and just cooled them on the pan instead of transferring to a paper towel. Seemed to work just fine.

Thanks for finding the recipe for me shh! This is gonna save me a bunch of money.
