How to Make Chocolate Mixed Nut Clusters using a Double Boiler

  • Make a double boiler for melting the chocolate by taking a saucepan and bringing 2 quarts of water to a boil, reduce to a simmer. Place a glass bowl of the same size or slightly smaller inside the simmering water. No water should be in the bowl- it just sits on top of the boiling water. 
  • Place the milk chocolate chips and the baking chocolate inside the waterless pot and stir until melted.Add in the 2 cups of mixed nuts and stir until completely coated.
  • NOTE: If your stove has a "Melt" setting- skip the double broiler and just add chocolate to a medium sized saucepan instead. (NO WATER NEEDED!)
  • Scoop the chocolate nut mixture using medium sized spoons onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Place the cookie sheets inside of your fridge until the chocolate has set. Enjoy!

  • Place all of the chocolate in a medium sized glass or ceramic bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. Let sit 3-4 minutes, in the microwave. Stir gently. Add time in 30 second intervals, letting chocolate sit for 2-3 minutes after each warming segment before stirring. Once chocolate is completely melted, add in the 2 cups of mixed nuts and stir until completely coated.Scoop the chocolate nut mixture using medium sized spoons onto parchment lined cookie sheets.Place the cookie sheets inside of your fridge until the chocolate has set. Enjoy!
