Crunchy, Nutty Desserts for National Almond Day

Nowadays, almonds might be thought of as ordinary, but in Ancient Egyptian times they were considered a prized delicacy. Heralded for their excellent health benefits, these little nuts have been a nutritious addition to diets for many millennia; the earliest almonds date back to 3000 BC! Plain, roasted, or covered in chocolate, almonds are a great snack any day of the week – and most certainly today for National Almond Day!
