Dear Jessica
The SA Food Tables unfortunately don't list the energy value of yoghurt coated Brazil nuts. However the SA Food Tables do list the energy value of chocolate coated nuts (type not specified) as 557 kcal per 100 g. You can weigh some of the yoghurt coated Brazil nuts to get an average weight per nut and calculate the energy content using the following formula: average weight of 1 Brazil nut multiplied by 557 kcal and divided by 100.
Any food can cause weight gain if you eat it in excessive quantities and if by doing so you exceed your daily energy requirement. In general, nuts have a high energy content and the listed value for Brazil nuts is: 656 kcal per 100 g.

A brazil nut is a fat, and there is sugar in the yoghart. I wouldnt advise you chose this as something to snack on regularly
