Chocolate Cashew and Almond Clusters

You would think that with how often I bake treats, I would have a sea of “Sweet Tooths” around me.  While part of this is true, there are some very far-from sweet tooths in my household. What do you make for someone whose favorite and only choice of baked goods is….

  1. Anything Apple; Apple muffins, Apple Tart, Baked Apples, Apple Crisp. Apples.
  2. Chocolate Chip Cookies.
  3. Skittles. If you even count those as “baked goods”.

It is my mission to find more things I can bake that they will love.

Chocolate-Cashew Clusters
  • Chocolate bits
  • Cashews
  • Almonds
  • (All of whatever amount you would like)
In a double broiler, melt your chocolate. While melting, lay a piece of parchment on top of a baking sheet. Once the chocolate is melted, toss in the cashews (or nut of your choice) and stir until all cashews look fully coated. With a spoon, fish out several coated cashews (or more) with extra melted chocolate, and drop it onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Once the baking sheet is filled, place in the freezer for 15 minutes, or refrigerator for 35m or until hardened.
These work great for stocking stuffers and Holiday gift basket treats! Just wrap up in some plastic wrap and tie it off with some cute holiday ribbon!
