Chocolate Nut Clusters

This is one of the easiest snacks you can ever cook. Chocolate Nut Rice Cake Clusters are crunchy, easy to make, and consist of only a few ingredients. Chocolate Nut Clusters could be your everyday snack with the afternoon coffee and it can be a great last-minute gift to friends and family, besides nut clusters will look nice in a glass bowl.

I wanted to make some super easy recipe with the ingredients that I have at home. I took nuts, puffed up rice cakes, covered it all with rich chocolate, and left to cool in the fridge, and that’s it.

Chocolate Nut Clusters (Sugar-free)

Chocolate Nut Clusters – Healthy, Easy Everyday Snack

Chocolate nut clusters

Tip for making these delicious Chocolate Nut Clusters:

  • You can choose any of your favorite nuts, it doesn’t matter what kind of nuts you are using as long as you like the taste of them. I think the most appropriate nuts are almonds, hazelnuts, and cashews.
  • Chop half of the nuts, because that can help you to make the crispiness of clusters.
  • The coconut oil makes the chocolate more liquid and easier to process with nuts.
  • I prefer to keep Chocolate Nut Clusters in the freezer, then they will be harder and better held together than keeping them in the fridge.
