I like this idea . everyone i know loves chocolate covered almonds. yum

Any interest in adding chocolate bars to the fundraiser or doing one in the new year? Early spring works well around Easter. You can make $1 per box of chocolate covered almonds($30 per case) - a big hit with many people. Chocolate bunnies also a hit. If you buy 50 cases you stand to make a minimum of $1500. A lot of people also give a little "something extra" when buying.Also, you can personalize the boxes for free with Saints' name on it. I e-mailed the info to Carol a while back. The cases sell pretty fast if volunteers can sell at their workplace too.
