How to make Chocolate Walnuts:
This is an overview of the recipe with photos. Complete instructions are located on the recipe card below.
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together.
Line a cookie sheet or plate with 9 mini cupcake liners.
Add about ½ tablespoon of melted chocolate into each liner.
Place 1 walnut on top. Push the walnut down into the chocolate gently.
Cover each with another ½ tablespoon of melted chocolate until you can’t see the walnut anymore.
Finish with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt.
Place the cookie sheet or plate into the fridge (not freezer) for about 1 hour to harden.
Remove from the liners and enjoy!
Recipe pro tips:
Chocolate burns very easily. Don't leave the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave for more than 30 seconds at a time.
Don't let the melted chocolate sit for too long. It hardens as it sits, making it thicker. Then, it will be harder to pour into the liners. Pop it back into the microwave for 10-15 seconds if needed.
You can use other nuts in this recipe if you would like instead.
Of course! The crunchy, savory, nuttiness of the walnut pairs perfectly with the sweetness and creaminess of the chocolate.
Yes! Dark chocolate is lower in sugar than milk chocolate. It's also filled with antioxidants and magnesium. Walnuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
Store them in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge.
