Chocolate nut clusters

Let’s make some chocolate NUTS.




There are 2 ways you can melt the chocolate. The best way is the double boiler method:

Take a medium size pot and fill it 1/2 way with water. Bring to a gentle simmer. Place a stainless steel or large glass mixing bowl on top of the pot (make sure the bowl is larger then the pot and the water does not boil over). Add the chocolate chips to the bowl and continuously stir for a few minutes until the chocolate is completely melted.

NOTE: make sure no water or steam gets into the chocolate or else the chocolate will not melt correctly and you will have to start over with a new batch of chocolate.)

The 2nd method is to place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 20-30 second intervals. Between each interval stir the chocolate for 30 seconds before microwaving again. Repeat the process until the chocolate is melted.

NOTE: if you try this method, do not rush it! The chocolate can burn very easily in the microwave. Take your time and go slow.)

Next add the nuts to the melted chocolate and fold in until the nuts are completely covered in chocolate.

Using baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spoon 2 tbsp clusters onto the parchment paper about 1.5 inches apart. Season the clusters lightly with flakey salt or kosher salt.

Place the baking sheets in the freezer for about 1-2 hours or until the chocolate nut clusters are set up.

(Pro Tip: I recommend storing the clusters in the fridge. Also if you prefer a sweeter nut cluster. You can split the chocolate to 8 oz milk chocolate and 8 oz semi sweet.)
