Crunchy Candy Components: Almonds, Cashews, Peanuts, and More
Before we dive into the wide world of candy with nuts, let’s explore nuts themselves. Common additions to chocolate candy include almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, peanuts, pistachios, and walnuts. While many people refer to these ingredients as nuts, they are really only nuts in the culinary sense; hazelnuts are the only true nut of the bunch. Peanuts are technically the seeds of legumes, and the rest of the nuts mentioned above are seeds from varieties of stone fruit. Botanically, only hazelnuts are considered true nuts. Still, you’d have to be nutty to say that the rest don’t belong in chocolate, too!
Nuts Take Center Stage in Almond Bark, Cashew Bark, or Almond Butter Crunch
Chocolate bark and toffee are two common confectionery uses for nuts. Almonds are a natural addition and the star of our almond bark, which consists of a rich slab of dark or milk chocolate laden with roasted California almonds. For cashew lovers, our milk or dark chocolate cashew bark is a luxurious alternative. If you’re looking for candy with a bit more crunch to it, try our almond butter crunch! Pieces of buttery toffee are drenched in milk chocolate, then rolled in chopped almonds.
