If you know me, then you know I am always looking for a new guilt-free sweet treat. Imagine my excitement when I stumbled across this recipe for Salted Dark Chocolate and Cherry Almond Clusters. Only 4 ingredients? And a 5min prep time?! Sounds like my kind of dessert.
I didn't have cherries in the fridge, so I decided to improvise. Thanks to some local strawberries and shredded coconut, I made the best Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Clusters.
- ¼ cup fresh strawberries, washed and chopped
- ¼ cup raw whole almonds, roughly chopped
- ½ cup dark chocolate morsels
- 1 teaspoon coconut flakes
Start by combining the chopped strawberries and chopped almonds in a small bowl. Place dark chocolate morsels in a separate bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds, stirring with a rubber spatula. Repeat 2-3 times until dark chocolate is fully melted.
Pour the dark chocolate into the small bowl with chopped strawberries and almonds. Stir the mixture with rubber spatula until thoroughly coated. Using a tablespoon, scoop out 2 tablespoons of the chocolate mixture and place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and enjoy!
Chocolate covered strawberries are cool and all.... BUT THESE CLUSTERS!
