Salted Chocolate Mixed Nuts is my ultimate, DIY, edible gift for any occasion that calls for edible gifts. I originally published this recipe in 2015, and it has stood the test of time! After you make this once, you’ll literally craaaave the mixed nuts, with dark chocolate, and that addictive Black Truffle Salt.
Salted Chocolate Mixed Nuts
Guys, this is the Taj Mahal of sweet and salty.
If not for your own enjoyment, make this THE gift that keeps on giving your special someone a whole lot enjoyment.
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).

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!
