Friday Food: Dark Chocolate Nut Cluster w/ Sea Salt

Something a little more sweet this week as we keep getting closer and closer to the holiday season.  Just because you want to enjoy a snack doesn't mean it has to put you completely off the rails of trying to eat healthy and keep your nutrition moving in the right direction.

-20 almonds (around 20 grams)
-20 pecan halves (about 20 grams)
-20 walnut halves (about 20 grams)
-1 package Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers (or your favorite kind)
-Sea salt

The Game Plan

  1. Place chocolate wafers in a medium, microwave safe bowl.  Melt in 30 second increments, stirring until melted, about 1 1/2 minutes total.
  2. Working quickly, dip a walnut into the melted chocolate with a fork and shake excess off.  Transfer to a piece of wax paper.  Do the same without the pecan, then lay the pecan on top of the walnut.  Repeat with the almond, finishing the cluster.  Repeat with the remaining nuts.
  3. Finish each with a pinch of sea salt, to do this you will want to sprinkle it on top once they are almost dry so it doesn't absorb, but not to dry or it won't stick.
