With chocolate covered almonds, you get the best of both worlds in terms of flavour and health benefits. Dark chocolate, contrary to common belief, can actually be healthy for you. The cocoa solids contain antioxidants. These aid in repairing and preventing the damage of free radicals in the body, and strengthening of the immune system. Almonds are a rich source of protein, and nutrients such as zinc, calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, vitamin E and B vitamins.
