This sweet little recipe with only three ingredients (yep, you read that right!) came from my friend and fellow Victory Belt author, Julie Smith. Her new cookbook, Keto Your Way was recently released!

When it comes to using chocolate in recipes, I prefer to use sugar-free chocolate chips from my favorite brand, Lily’s Sweets. The flavor and taste are spot-on to traditional chocolate chips and none of the artificial junk is found in these sugar-free chocolate chips.

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

  2. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high 1 minute. Stir, then microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat as needed in 30-second intervals until the chocolate is fully melted.

  3. Place nuts into a small dry skillet and cook for 1 minute over medium-high heat until toasted and nicely brown. Remove from skillet and place 3-4 nuts in a cluster together on the lined baking sheet. Repeat until you have 18 clusters.

  4. Pour the melted chocolate over the nut clusters, using about 1 tablespoon for each cluster. Then top each cluster with a dash of course sea salt.

  5. Place the baking sheet in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes before enjoying. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Recipe Notes

Please note I did change the recipe slightly. The orginial recipe uses 1.5 cups sugar free chocolate chips. I found 1 cup was plenty. The recipe in the cookbook also had just 12 clusters but I was able to make 18 using 3-4 nuts for each cluster. I also toasted my nuts for added flavor, but this step is optional.
