Crunchy Chocolate Reishi Almonds


  • 6 ounces dark chocolate (at least 70 to 80% cacao)
  • 1 teaspoon reishi mushroom extract powder
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup raw almonds (unblanched, preferably soaked for at least 4 hours)


Step 1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over low heat, about 10 minutes. Add the reishi powder to the melted chocolate, stir well to combine, and set aside.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine cinnamon, and 1/3 cup water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. When the mixture begins to simmer, stir in the almonds. Cook the nuts for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.

Step 4

Add the almonds to the chocolate and stir until evenly coated. Spread the chocolate-covered almonds over the prepared baking sheet and set aside to cool, allowing them to harden for at least 1 hour before serving. ***Reprinted from Healing Mushrooms: A Practical and Culinary Guide To Using Mushrooms for Whole Body Health by arrangement with Avery, an imprint of Penguin Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Random House LLC.
