It’s Dec 2015 and this is crazy, but I’ve searched the interwebs high and low…and I can’t find anyone else making, eating, and publishing a truffle-salted chocolate nut cluster thang. So, here’s my Black Truffle Salted Dark Chocolate Drizzled Nuts. Look out, you! This stuff is ahhhdictive!
Black Truffle-Salted Dark Chocolate-Drizzled Nuts
The title is a mouthful, but guys, this is the Taj Mahal of sweet and salty…in the knick of time for winter holidays. If not for your own enjoyment, make this THE gift of edible gifts. We’re talking lightly-toasted nuts, drizzled with dark chocolate, and dusted with Black Truffle Salt. Lions and tigers and….
Ok, I’m gonna make 3 points about this sexy little number…and the recipe is all you!
POINT #1…Use a lotta nuts…and a little chocolate. Like this:
In the nut-cluster world, there are mega recipes out there for chocolatey clusters and the nuts are invisible. But, for years, I’ve been doing it the other way around…and I’m sharing it with you!
Nothing against smothery-clusters, but I wanna eat MORE sweet and salty, and LESS gobs of sugar…more like a snack. A healthy snack with a touch of decadence. Aaaand, you know how I’m always trying to reduce the ingredient-guilt thing and keep it dah-licious? This one’s a jackpot!
This recipe is as easy as melting, drizzling, sprinkling, cooling, and breaking apart.
Yep, I’m bringing sexy back with this little number! The title is longer than the 4-ingredient list…which brings me to my next point (the real sex appeal)…
POINT #2…Black Truffle Salt
This is THE bacon of the seasoning world with HUGE flavor and aroma. Not as inexpensive as regular salt, but a little goes a looooong way.
Find it at Whole Foods or specialty retail grocers…and don’t skip it, unless you’re *allergic. (*Truffles are a fungus, so know your allergies, and eat responsibly. I’ve never known anyone to be allergic, but it can happen.)
FYI: You can get Truffle Salt delivered to your doorstep…here’s a *4oz glass jar. It’s an excellent value for the quality and cost. (*This affiliate link gives me a small commission for your purchase, so thank you if you decide to buy. No obligation, of course).
Other ways to use Black Truffle Salt:
- mac and cheese
- mashed potatoes
- pretty much any carb-y foods
POINT #3…You’ll be fondly remembered
…if you serve up my Black Truffle Salted Dark Chocolate Drizzled Nuts as:
- party snacks
- edible gifts
- game-day grub
- lunch box snacks
- outdoor eats

About the mixed nuts: I like to buy raw, unsalted nuts and mix them up. This way, I get to control the salt, quantity and variety of nuts, and skip any added oils by toasting them myself, without oil. For this recipe, I used almonds, cashews, pecans, and pistachios, but use whatever you like!
No matter what the occasion, these lil dudes will make you think about them long after they’re gone. So, get ready, yo!
Ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:
