Mixed Nut Clusters

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Mixed Nut Clusters are the perfect sweet and nutty chocolate covered treat packed with walnuts, cashews, pecans, and almonds. Easily made in just minutes!

Like Chocolate Covered Almonds, Mixed Nut Clusters make a great holiday treat to give to family and friends. Include them in your Christmas tins or on a party platter with cookies, brownies, and holiday candy. Check out my dessert recipes for other homemade chocolatey goodies.

MIXED NUT CLUSTERS

I love how easily Mixed Nut Clusters come together. They are the perfect quick holiday treat for last minute gifts or potlucks, and they taste just as good as they look.

While it would be wonderful to be able to shower everyone on my list with gifts, that’s just not realistic. Whether it’s a teacher’s aide or a doctor’s office staff, I love to share homemade candies and treats as a way of saying thank you for being so great to me and my family during the year.

This recipe is so easy to make and they go great as an individual gift or in an assortment of chocolate covered treats like grahams, cookies, and caramels. They are easy to adapt to what kind of nuts you have on hand too. If you are short a type of nut, just leave it out or swap it.

Once you’ve assembled your chocolate nut clusters, you can go on about doing the other million things you need to do during the holidays. Knowing that these yummy gluten-free clusters are ready to pop into any last minute fruit and candy basket is a huge stress reliever.

These delicious little treats don’t have to be just for gift giving. Rough chop your finished chocolate nut clusters and sprinkle them over a scoop of Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Salted Caramel Sauce and Whipped Cream for a sundae that rivals the best ice cream parlor.

Sweet and Salty Trail Mix

If you’ve ever driven with little ones in tow, you know that road snacks are essential. And if your kids are anything like mine, they go through them quickly!

To celebrate the kick-off of summer road trips, my friends at Discount Tire asked me to share a quick, easy and healthy snack for the busy travel season. This Sweet and Salty Trail Mix is not only fun to make but is a great excuse to get those little ones in the kitchen to help you make a batch.

My boys love berries so we used dried blueberries and strawberries but feel free to use your favorite fruits. Raisins, figs, apricots or cherries would all be fantastic. Pistachios, peanuts and dark-chocolate covered almonds add heart-healthy fats and a boost of protein to give you energy and keep you satisfied between meals while on the road.

Travel Tip: If your journey has you spending long hours in the car, make it a point to find a park or nature trail along your route. It’s a great way to let the kids burn off energy and the fresh air will give the adults a little energy boost to stay focused for the rest of the drive.

Have fun with this trail mix recipe and make it your own! It will last up to three weeks when stored in an air-tight container, perfect for stashing in the car for when cravings strike.


The best part about these homemade treats is you can make them in whatever flavor and quantity you like. If you're partial to chocolate, choose to incorporate melting chocolate chips in white, dark or milk chocolate, or pick another flavor — like butterscotch. If you'd rather coat your pretzels in a creamy, fruity frosting, select a fruit variety for your yogurt instead of vanilla or mix in your favorite flavor of seedless preserves.

You can make your pretzels with strawberry, blackberry or blueberry coats. And if you need an especially large quantity of these tasty snacks for your function, just adjust the recipe based on the number of mini pretzel bags you use. Follow these steps to create your personalized yogurt pretzels:

Instructions:

Step 1. Begin by preheating your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2. Next, combine the confectioners sugar and yogurt in a large mixing bowl and blend together with a handheld mixer. If you choose to add any seedless preserves, spoon them in and mix with the sugar and yogurt until the mixture takes on the color of the preserves.

Step 3. Alternatively, if you want to add chocolate to your pretzel coating, put the melting chocolates in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds or until melted, then add to the yogurt mixture and mix until well-blended.

Step 4. Using tweezers, tongs or chopsticks, dip your pretzels into your yogurt mixture one at a time, coating them completely and laying them out on wire cooling racks placed on top of baking sheets.

Step 5. When all your pretzels are coated and laid out, turn the oven off and place the baking sheets and wire racks inside, leaving the door ajar to prevent the pretzels from becoming soggy.

Step 6. Let the coated pretzels harden for 3-4 hours, then remove them from the oven. Enjoy! Make sure to store your leftovers in an airtight container.

Super Chocolate Snack Bars

I was watching a Food Network competition recently and one of the challengers made chocolate hummus. The judges were all raving over how delicious it was so it piqued my interest. When I saw this Boar&rsquos Head Dark Chocolate Hummus at the grocery store, I had to give it a try. I honestly wasn&rsquot entirely sure what to expect, but after I got it home and gave it a try, I was hooked! It was smooth, creamy, chocolaty and the perfect accompaniment for this Healthy Fruit & Chocolate Party Tray.

If you are looking for a guilt-free snack or a unique item to serve at your next gathering, this Boar&rsquos Head Dark Chocolate Hummus is a must-try. It&rsquos made from steamed chickpeas blended with cocoa powder, organic sugar, and real vanilla for a wholesome treat.

You might be questioning me right now, wondering how chocolate and hummus go together. While most of us are used to eating hummus in a savory fashion like these Boar&rsquos Head varieties, the sweet version is a new concept that is a real winner in my opinion. There is no savory element competing with the sweet chocolate. It is simply using the steamed chickpeas, which have a mild flavor, as the base to this creamy dip.

Anything you would dip in chocolate is perfectly paired with this Dark Chocolate Hummus. For this Healthy Fruit & Chocolate Party Tray, I paired the creamy dip with fresh fruit, pretzels, crackers, nuts and more. I added a few fun additions like chocolate covered raisins as well to pair with the platter along with a cheese and cracker spread. You can make this healthy appetizer all your own with a selection of your favorite dippers.

Cheese is an obvious choice to pair with any party spread including fruit and crackers. I served a Boar&rsquos Head Bold MarBleu and Sharp Wisconsin Cheddar to add a nice variety to please various pallets. Between the fruit, dark chocolate hummus, crackers and cheese, you have got everything you need for a guilt-free party spread that is sure to impress!

Now go hit up your local grocery store and snag a tub of this Boar&rsquos Head Dark Chocolate Hummus to make this Healthy Fruit & Chocolate Party Tray while you still can! It is the perfect addition to any party or social gathering. This unique hummus is only being offered for a limited time, so I know I will be stocking up for all my upcoming holiday gatherings!

Homemade Chocolate Covered Cherries

Have you ever tried Chocolate Covered Cherries before? I remember having them for the first time when I was about 8 years old. I LOVED cherries and knew I’d love them even more coated in a powdered sugar dough and dipped in chocolate.

It was easy to love them, but for some reason I had totally forgotten about them since recently. I hadn’t had any for decades, but I thought I’d give them a try! The whole family loved these chocolate covered cherries!!

Before trying this recipe, I didn’t know just how easy they were to make! They’re perfect for holidays and gift giving and are the perfect little treat to serve at parties. The flavors of this little candy fruit are amazing. Being a white chocolate lover, I’m excited to try them next time dipped in white chocolate.


Meg Quinn – Valentine’s Day Dessert Board

2. Make your apple heart. Using your red apple slice two sides off. Then, take one of the sides & start to thinly slice. Once sliced, mold the apple into a heart shape. Place onto your round & fill in with blueberries to make the apple pop

3. Move onto larger scale items (cookies, brownies, larger gummies) Start lining the edges of the board to create a barrier. One the edges are good to go, arrange them in fun ways around the board (fan out on edges, around ramekins, create rows)

4. Pay attention to color distribution. Spread out similar colors. I.e. chocolate browns on opposite corners, white on opposite corners and so forth. This helps to create visual interest and balance on the board

5. Fill in the holes with smaller candies. Like pink mints, small gummies, chocolate covered almonds, etc.

6. Add little clear scoops around the board to serve (optional)
