Tero recommends using dark chocolate with at least 70 or 80 percent cacao.

Reishi Chocolate Almonds

These delicious little morsels—which are stupid-easy to whip up—make the perfect afternoon snack or a post-dinner treat.

Makes about 1 cup

6 ounces dark chocolate

1 teaspoon Reishi Mushroom Elixir Mix

⅓ cup raw honey

Pinch of ground cinnamon

1 cup raw almonds (unblanched; preferably soaked for at least 4 hours)

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

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

3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the honey, cinnamon, and ⅓ 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.

4. Pour the honey-coated almonds into the chocolate and stir until all are coated evenly. 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.
