  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate cut up or chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups roasted or raw macadamia nuts
  • 2 tablespoons creamy almond butter
  • pinch sea salt (for sprinkling on chocolate clusters)


  1. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate with the almond butter until smooth and creamy.

  3. Add the macadamia nuts and stir until well mixed and the nuts are coated with the chocolate sauce.

  4. Scoop about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of the nut chocolate mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.  If you have any leftover chocolate, spread it over the tops of the chocolate mounds.  Add more melted chocolate if it needs it. Sprinkle generously with sea salt.

  5. Place baking sheet in the freezer or refrigerator for 15-30 minutes until chocolate is solid.

  6. Since this paleo chocolate clusters melt easily, store in the freezer or refrigerator in a sealed plastic baggie until ready to consume.  I prefer the freezer because it lasts longer.
