DIY – Salted Dark Chocolate Coated Brazil Nuts
{Vegan, Gluten Free & Paleo Friendly}
Makes approx 2 cups of all natural, crisp and crunchy, dark and delicious, chocolate coated oven roasted Brazil nuts.

Ingredients –

2 cups raw Brazil nuts

1/3 cup dark chocolate chips – if Vegan make sure you choose a vegan/dairy free alternative

1 Tablespoon of flakey sea salt

Method –

1 – Preheat oven to 175’C (350’F)

2 – Place your Brazil nuts on a lined baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes until lightly golden.

3 – While your nuts are roasting, melt your chocolate. I like to do mine broiler style on a plate over a pot of simmering water.

4 – Once your chocolate is melted, add your roasted Brazil nuts to the melted chocolate and stir to combine.

5 – Pour chocolate coated Brazil nuts back onto your lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer. If you have any left over chocolate feel free to drizzle it over your already coated Brazil nuts.

6 – Place in the fridge (or freezer) to set.

7 – Once set gently break apart any clusters, sprinkle with some salt flakes and store in an airtight container in the fridge (or freezer).

Enjoy xo
