Many of us have a sweet tooth that sometimes needs to be fed with something sweet and delicious. Cookies, candy, cakes, ice-cream, and other treats can all help satisfy a pesky sweet tooth, but whatever your favorite dessert may be, there is one sweet concoction in particular that almost everyone craves: chocolate.

Chocolate has been around for centuries and is enjoyed by people worldwide today. Chocolate exists in many forms, from bars and candies to powder for cooking and drinking. The smooth, rich, intense flavor chocolate offers makes it one of the most popular tastes out there, and there is a type of chocolate to tempt just about anyone's taste buds.

Of course, a delicious chocolate treat does not always consist solely of chocolate. In fact, some of the best sweet snacks and desserts feature chocolate as a prominent ingredient, but also get extra flavor from other elements as well. Specifically, nuts and chocolate go very well together, and chocolate-covered nuts are a deliciously sweet snack that packs protein and nutrients as well.

If you're craving chocolate-covered nuts, there are many places to find them. Most grocery and candy stores sell a good selection of almonds, peanuts, pecans, cashews, and more covered in a sweet layer of dark, white, or milk chocolate. For the best variety, you can browse online options to find exactly what you're looking for.

If you are into cooking, you could try making your own chocolate-covered nuts. This way, you can make this treat however you like and possibly save money at the same time. To make a basic recipe, use a package of your favorite nuts (or a variety mix) and about 1 ˝ cups chocolate. After heating the chocolate, stir in the nuts, and then spoon small amounts of the mixture into candy cups. Let these refrigerate for about an hour, then they'll be ready to enjoy. You can try different ideas and ingredients to make all kinds of delicious snacks. For instance, use white chocolate instead of milk chocolate for a different taste, or use a fun mixture of nuts. You can create a kind of bridge mix by adding chocolate-covered raisins as well as other goodies.

Chocolate-covered nuts are a great way to enjoy the delicious taste of chocolate whenever you have a sweet tooth. Either shop around for the perfect kind at the store or online, or try making your own chocolate-covered creations.
