Clusters: Coconut Almond and Fruit & NutFeb. 9th

I have three words to say about these…to die for! They are unbelievable easy to make and everyone who has tried thought they tasted great. While I didn’t give them to anyone as a gift, they are impressive enough to present as such.

Radical Homemaker Quick Tip
Keeping these tucked in your fridge or freezer for a quick healthy indulgence is not a bad idea. Yes, they contain sugar so we need to be mindful of how many we eat but if eaten sparingly and only one at a time this would be a much better option than housing a doughnut or a hot fudge sundae.

Coconut Almond Clusters
Use This

2 cups Tierra Farm Dark Chocolate Chips

1 cup Tierra Farm Shredded Coconut, toasted

Makes 24

Toasting Almonds & Coconut
What I do…throw the oven on 350º. Place almonds and coconut on their own cookie sheets. Place in oven and start shaking pan after 5 minutes until they have the toasted look. Watch your coconut, it will burn and burnt coconut is not so tasty.

Fruit & Nut Clusters
Use This

½ cup Tierra Farm Dark Chocolate Chips
½ – ¾ cup Tierra Farm Raw Tierra Mix

Do This
1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or saucepan over low heat.
2. Add raw mix.
3. Give it a good stir so all the fruit and nuts are enrobed in chocolate.
4. Use a spoon to drop mixture onto baking sheet (lined with Beyond Gourmet unbleached parchment).
5. Place in the freezer or fridge to set.
Makes 12
