Chocolate is a weakness for me, I have loved amazing and good chocolate for as long as I can remember. One thing I love to enjoy is Hershey‘s bar with almonds. Oh my are they good! Buuuuutttt they are so not keto friendly. I had to come up with something chocolate and keto friendly that would give me what I was wanting when ever the craving would hit me. Bring on these amazing Keto Chocolate Almond Clusters!
Even though I know how to make chocolate bars, I wanted the focus to be on the almonds because that is a healthier option. It is also much lower in carbs with out losing the flavor when there is more almonds then chocolate. This Keto Chocolate Almond Clusters recipe is one of my favorite easy and low carb chocolate desserts. Yes I count chocolate bars as desserts, they are my favorite! 🙂
The secret to making these Chocolate Almond Clusters is the sea salt. I watched an episode of good eats where he explains why salty and sweet go together so well I tend to want to add salt to my sweets. This helps to bring out the sweet flavors and mask some of the bitter flavors. The mix of salty with sweet and the almonds gives such an amazing flavor. If you do not normally like dark chocolate because it is so bitter compared to milk chocolate, adding the salt will trick your taste buds into thinking you are eating a sweeter chocolate.
To make this a keto friendly chocolate treat, you need to use a low carb chocolate. Personally I like the Lily’s Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips. You can also make these Keto Almond Clusters using Ghirardelli Chocolate Intense Dark Squares or Green & Black’s Organic Dark Chocolate.
A typical serving of Almonds is roughly 23 almonds, or a 1/4 cup. When making these almond clusters you want to have 11- 12 almonds per cluster. You will end up with 16 Almond clusters with this recipe. You can make the clusters smaller and adjust the carb count for how big yours are. I personally like to have a bigger treat. 🙂
