Chocolate tastes amazing on its own, but is also perfect in so many flavor combinations. It’s great with peanut butter, sea salt, citrus, berries, almonds, and you might even enjoy it with mint (if you’re into that). Chocolate and almonds specifically are very yummy treats. The crunch of almond pieces in a chocolate bar or pastry is heavenly. Or if you’re gluten-free, almond meal/flour is a flour alternative for baking chocolate pastries!

We put together 10 dairy-free chocolate almond recipes from the Food Monster App to help you get creative with this flavor combo!
