Dark Chocolate Nut Clusters

Yield:  12 servings
Serving Size: 2 clusters

Dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids, which may help in lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow to the brain and heart.  Enjoy this treat, and get a beneficial amount of vitamin E, copper, and manganese.

1 cup roasted raw almonds, with skins
1 cup roasted raw pistachios
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (SunSpire Grain Sweetened Dark Chocolate Baking Chips were used)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (Fleur de Sel recommended)

Preheat oven to 325°.

Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper; evenly spread almonds and pistachios onto sheet.  Roast 12 minutes.  Cool at room temperature.

In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate and salt; melt over low heat, while stirring, until completely melted, 3–4 minutes.  Add almonds and pistachios to chocolate; toss to cover.  Pour chocolate-covered nuts onto the same lined cookie sheet; spread flat, but keep nuts next to each other in order to form 1 piece. 

Allow to cool at room temperature; refrigerate 30 minutes if chocolate is still sticky.  Break into 1- to 2-inch pieces.  Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. 

Tip: If the temperature is warm outside, store in the refrigerator.
