Nuts and Chocolate Candy: A Winning Combination!

Nuts and Chocolate Candy: A Winning Combination!

Nuts and chocolate candy go together like peanut butter and jelly — both are great individually, but they’re out of this world as a pair!

Nuts and chocolate candy go together like peanut butter and jelly — both are great individually, but they’re out of this world as a pair! Chocolate candy often features nut butter, whole nuts, chopped nuts, and nut-flavored fillings. Whether they’re almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, peanuts, pecans, or cashews, nuts and chocolate candy just belong together.

Chocolate Candy + Almonds = Rich, Crunchy Goodness

While Jordan almonds and marzipan are some of the most popular almond confections, there are plenty of other sweets that blend almonds and chocolate candy. Wockenfuss offers almond bark and almond butter crunch in both traditional and sugar-free versions. Our almond bark features whole roasted almonds embedded in slabs of either milk or dark chocolate, and our classic almond butter crunch combines buttery toffee, milk chocolate, and chopped almonds. If you’re a fan of almond paste, enjoy our dark chocolate pistachio marzipan! If whole roasted almonds are more your style, indulge in our milk or dark chocolate covered almonds.

Chocolate Candy + Peanuts = A Classic Pair

Peanuts are arguably the most popular nut in chocolate candy. Peanut butter and whole or chopped peanuts can improve any confection, elevating its flavors and combining complementary aspects of sweet and salty. Milk chocolate covered peanuts are easy to munch on anywhere, and jumbo milk and dark peanut butter cups are a Wockenfuss favorite. Our milk chocolate peanut butter meltaways are a smooth, nutty, peanut-buttery treat that will leave you wanting more!

Chocolate Candy + Hazelnuts = Sweet, Nutty Truffles

Believe it or not, hazelnuts are the only “true nut” in the bunch. Almonds, peanuts, and cashews are considered “culinary nuts” — they aren’t nuts in the botanical sense, but they are treated like nuts in cooking. Wockenfuss offers a few different hazelnut-based confections, all of which are truffles. Our hazelnut bite-size truffle contains a rich ganache center full of hazelnut flavor, and our milk chocolate hazelnut truffle creams combine hazelnut praline paste and rich milk chocolate. For an elegant addition to any candy dish or box of assorted chocolates, consider our hazelnut truffle squares! These simple squares feature bold layers of milk chocolate and hazelnut paste for a melt-in-your-mouth treat.

Chocolate Candy + Cashews = Elegant Confections

Cashews are big, rich, and buttery, and they’re often the first to go in a bowl of mixed nuts. An accessory fruit of the cashew tree, cashew nuts make an elegant addition to all kinds of candies. Milk chocolate covered cashews are a simple yet sumptuous way to enjoy these exotic nuts. Our milk or dark chocolate cashew caramel patties (also available sugar-free!) feature crunchy cashews, buttery caramel, and rich chocolate, all in one delectable bite. Can’t decide what to get? Consider picking up some of our bridge mix, which contains chocolate-covered cashews, almonds, peanuts, pecans, raisins, and malted balls, plus yogurt-covered cranberries.
