Chocolate Nut Clusters

Servings: 14 candies

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup roughly chopped nuts (walnuts,cashew or almonds)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Procedure:

Step 1: Take chocolate chips in a bowl and melt it on a double boiler.Double boiler is nothing but a simple technique or a tool which is used to melt chocolate so that it does not burn,as if we try to melt chocolate directly over the heat it can burn very quickly.You can get double boiler easily in the market or else you can easily create one yourself at home. Take water in a big pan or kadhai and keep it to boil,when water starts boiling we take chocolate in another small bowl which can float on top of it and place it above it.In sometime chocolate starts melting and you get melted chocolate which can be used for various recipes.There is one more way to create your double boiler.Take water in a normal sized pan and when water starts boiling take chocolates in a big bowl and place over it.Both the techniques are well explained in the pictures given below:

Step 2: When chocolate is melted properly then add chopped nuts.You can use assorted nut or any one nut,as per your liking.Stir in the nuts nicely then take one heaping spoon of nut chocolate mixture and drop it into paper candy cups or wax paper lined on a plate or  baking tray.With this mixture around 14-15 candies can be made.Then refrigerate it for about 15 minutes so that it is little firm so that we can proceed towards next step.You can stop at this stage also and refrigerate the candies until firm and then can enjoy it or you can proceed to step 3 to give it a little fancy look.

Step 3: Melt white chocolate chips over a double boiler and then drizzle it over the nut clusters with a help of a spoon.If you are not able to do it with a spoon then you can pour white chocolate in a piping bag then make any design of your liking.Then refrigerate it until firm.Then you can wrap each candy in fancy chocolate wrappers or can simply store in air tight container.Enjoy !!
