How to make orange creamsicle almonds:

It's totally possible to recreate an almond snack with a similar flavor profile. Simply mix vanilla yogurt (or plain yogurt and vanilla extract) with orange zest and a splash of orange juice.

Next, toss roasted almonds in the mixture until each one is coated. Place them in freezer until hardened. (Alternatively, if frozen whole almonds are too hard for your liking, try breaking the almonds into pieces before coating them.)


Another option is to use melted white chocolate, orange zest, orange extract and/or orange food coloring. This way, you can keep the snack at room temperature or in the refrigerator. White chocolate also has a slight vanilla taste, so it will pair well with the orange extract.
