Almonds + Chocolate = The perfect pair

Hey friends!  For today’s Tuesday’s Simple Snack, I am sharing my go-to pick for satisfying my sweet tooth.  This has been the perfect combo to keep me from picking at all the Halloween candy.  However, I do have a secret ice cream bucket full of chocolate candies in the garage freezer from trick-or-treat that my kids do not know about. The idea was to use up extra candy for baking Christmas goodies, but honestly, frozen Snickers are even better frozen, gaah! We will see how many candies I have left by December, lol.

Anyway, I have found these cute little chocolate squares at Aldi for only $1.99.  The almonds I buy bulk at Costco (which I need to make a trip back because you can see we have almost finished up the bag).  These almonds always call my name when I am looking in my pantry. 

Dark chocolate and almonds offer many healthy benefits for an amazing treat after lunch or even as a simple snack with a latte for the afternoon (my favorite).  This snack shown above includes two chocolate squares plus 10 almonds for 130 calories; 8g carbohydrates; 2g fiber; 2g protein.  (FYI:  Each chocolate square is only 32 calories and 3g carbohydrates)

   Enjoy this treat!  There is always room for chocolate!  DD
