Easy to make Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Almond Clusters are a quick and easy snack recipe. These clusters are an easy chocolate addition to cheeseboards, holiday gifts, or as a delicious snack to pair with wine, or enjoy alone.
These chocolate covered almond clusters took about 10 minutes to make, and 30 minutes to fully harden. I purchased gourmet sea salt to sprinkle on them for a sweet and savory kick!
If you are looking for an elegant, inexpensive chocolate gift idea, these almond clusters can be packaged nicely with cellophane and curling ribbon and gifted to anyone who doesn’t have a nut allergy.
- 16 ounces of semi- sweet premium chocolate
- Black Hawaiian Sea Salt (or any you have on-hand)
- 12 ounces of raw unsalted almonds
Melt chocolate over a double boiler in a medium-sized glass bowl; stirring frequently.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add all the almonds into the melted chocolate and stir.
Using a spoon, remove little clumps and add them to the baking tray.
Once all of them are completed, sprinkle lightly with the sea salt.
Add the tray to the refrigerator for the chocolate to set for at least 1 hour.
Once they are done, stack them on tray and add some chocolate mint leaves as garnish for an elegant look.

Chocolate and sea salt are two of my favorite things! Plus, you’ve added protein from the nuts so that makes this healthy, right?

This looks really good! Would love to try it this weekend!
I love a good Pinot Noir. I’ll have to see if Rodney Strong is available here. Those clusters look absolutely decadent with the Hawaiian black sea salt.
Looks like a perfect evening and love that you shared a nice pairing idea. Thank you.
Most people turn up their noses at sea salt and chocolate. I love the combination – they don’t know what they’re missing!
Chocolate and sea salt for the win! It’s a decadent dessert idea but paired with the wine… yes please. I should do this for my next date night.
