How to Make Dark Chocolate Almond Turtle Clusters
Here is a look at how to make these Dark Chocolate Almond Turtle Clusters.
Order these ingredients from Amazon, using your SNAP EBT card. (Links to order below!!)
The sea salt flakes are optional.
In a large mixing bowl, add the caramel bits and almonds.
Mix them well.
Add the chocolate chips to a double boiler. (2 pans above.)
If you don’t have a top double boiler pan, you can use a large glass bowl.
If you do it this way, the bowl will get very hot and some steam might escape around the side. Use oven mitts and caution!
Once the water boils, the chocolate chips will begin to melt.
Stir often, as they are all melting to form smooth chocolate sauce.
Carefully and quickly scrape the melted chocolate into the bowl with the almonds and caramel bits.
Cover and coat the almonds and caramel with the melted chocolate.
Using a spoon, dollop the clusters onto a parchment or wax paper lined baking sheet.
This amount will make about 40 clusters.
Before the chocolate begins to cool, add a pinch of sea salt to each cluster.
Chill in the fridge for 1 hour, or on the countertop for about 2 hours.
Clusters can be served immediately, stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 7 days, or stored in resealable baggie or container in the freezer for up to 6 months.
