Cocoa Nut Clusters

{ HOPELESSLY DEVOTED TO CHOCOLATE }

{ INGREDIENTS }

60g cacao butter, chopped into small pieces

3 tbsp cacao powder

1 tbsp honey, pure maple syrup or equivalent sweetener of choice

1 cup mixed nuts of choice,* toasted

2 tbsp cacao nibs (optional)

{ METHOD }

Pre-line a tray with grease-proof paper and keep aside in fridge. (A cold tray will help the chocolate to set.) Melt cacao butter in a heat-proof bowl by placing on top of a second heat-proof bowl of hot water.

Stir until melted. In a mixing bowl combine melted cacao butter, cacao powder and chosen sweetener. Place in refrigerator for 2 to 3 minutes to allow to slightly thicken.

Stir in nuts and mix to coat well. Spoon tablespoon portions into individual clusters onto your pre-chilled tray.

Sprinkle with cacao nibs if using. Place in refrigerator until chocolate is set.

{ TIPS } *If using large nuts like brazil nuts or macadamia nuts roughly chop. To make this recipe nut free substitute nuts for toasted sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and/or shredded coconut.
