Paleo Dark Chocolate Nut Clusters
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons melted dark chocolate
Dried cherries (optional)
1 1/2 cups whole almonds
Handful of coconut shavings
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Start melting dark chocolate pieces in a pan on low heat; it won't take long to melt. If you want a sweet cherry taste, throw a handful into the pot once chocolate has melted.
Note: The serving size is for melted chocolate, so if you measure out the pieces beforehand, allow more chips to be added than the recommended amount.
- Place a teaspoon of melted chocolate on parchment paper; top with a small handful of almonds. Drizzle almonds with one tablespoon melted chocolate. Repeat process with remaining almonds and chocolate until your pan is full.
- Sprinkle coconut shavings over each tiny delight.
- Transfer to refrigerator for about 10 minutes to chill and remove them when firm. They'll be ready to enjoy right away!
