Chocolate-covered almonds are a candy created by covering almonds with chocolate.


In 1742, William Parks printed a copy of Eliza Smith's cookbook, The Compleat Housewife. "Chocolate almonds" was the only chocolate recipe it contained despite the popularity of chocolate among the wealthy at the time.[1]

Many places on the internet claim that July 8 is (American) National Milk Chocolate with Almonds Day,[2] while November 7 is National Bitter Chocolate with Almonds Day.[3]
