Salted Chocolate Almond Clusters
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
2⅓ cups unsalted almonds
coarse sea salt
With just three simple ingredients, regular every day kitchen supplies, and 30 minutes of time (including chill time) is all you need to be able to make these sea salt chocolate almond clusters.
How To Make Sea Salt Chocolate Nut Clusters
Get started by lining your baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, add the chocolate chips. Microwave for two minutes, making sure to pause every 30 seconds to stir. Continue until the chocolate is smooth and creamy.
Once you get the chocolate smooth, add in the almonds, folding them in until well coated.
Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, scoop up the mixture until the spoon is filled and place the chocolate/nut mixture on the lined baking sheet.
Repeat until all the chocolate/nut mixture has been used, then immediately sprinkle each cluster with sea salt.
Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes for the clusters to set, then enjoy!
Any leftover nut clusters can be stored at room temperature in an air tight container for up to one month.
Simple to make, these chocolate almond clusters have just the right amount of salty sweetness to soothe any craving.
