I have to be honest…it took me a while to photograph these chocolate covered nuts because every time I would make a batch my boyfriend and I would eat them all before I had a chance to take a picture. They’re so easy to make that I would just think, oh well! no worries, I’ll just make another batch and take a picture of that one. I think it was the 3rd batch that I finally got these pictures.
To sweeten these chocolate covered nut clusters I used powdered palm sugar. Palm sugar is normally quite coarse when you buy it. I’ve found that it can be pretty dense and sink to the bottom in recipes like this that require melting chocolate. Coarse palm sugar is great for baking, but for this recipe it’s necessary to powder the palm sugar to get the right consistency and distribution. In order to powder palm sugar, all you have to do is grind it in a coffee grinder and voila!
