Drizzled Nut Clusters

Drizzled Nut Clusters

I often struggle with being inventive when guests are coming over and I want to serve little sweet bites before or after a meal that people can just pick at.  I always turn to the standard breads and, dips and bowl full of nuts.  I found a quick little recipe which elevates the humble nut bowl.

Drizzled Nut Clusters


200g dark compound cooking chocolate, chopped
90g of roasted hazelnuts
60g walnut peices
60g red glace cherries, quartered

Melt 155g of chocolate in basin over barely simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.

Coarsely chop nuts, stir into chocolate with cherries until well coated.  Working quickly, drop heaped teaspoonful of mixture onto foil or greaseproof paper-lined tray.  Stand until set.

Melt remaining chocolate, pipe through piping bag in a zig zag pattern over each cluster.  Stand again until set.  Store airtight in a cool place.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
