Rich honey sweetened chocolate filled with chewy dried fruits and crunchy nuts. And so quick and easy to make!
The richness of chocolate, the sweetness of dried fruits, the crunch of nuts, and the additional texture of coconut make these paleo chocolate clusters an amazing snack or dessert! And the best part is that they are quick and easy to make.
Honey sweetened chocolate is not overly sweet, which is perfect on a paleo diet. This chocolate has just a touch of sweetness, with the dried fruit providing additional sweet flavors.
How to Make Paleo Chocolate Clusters
This recipe is so easy. Simply melt the chocolate in a double boiler, or in a bowl placed on top of a pot filled with water. Do not overheat the chocolate or it will change the texture. Heat just until it is melted. Turn off the heat, and while keeping the chocolate on the double boiler, add the honey and stir to combine.
If you prefer a sweeter chocolate, you can simply use a paleo approved chocolate, such as date sweetened chocolate chips. And all you have to do is melt the chocolate without adding any sweetener.
Quickly add the dried fruits, nuts, and coconut chips or shreds and mix together. Scoop spoonfuls into cupcake liners. Place in the refrigerator to set.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks. If they get too soft, place in the refrigerator until hardened.
Clusters can also be stored in the freezer in an airtight container for up to two months. Let thaw at room temperature.
