Another year of #25DaysOfBaking means dusting off some old recipes. This year I brought back a fan favorite, Dark Chocolate Almond Clusters.  Simple, delicious and a hit with my family it was a win-win.

Dark Chocolate Almond Clusters

Course: Dessert
Keyword: Almond, Chocolate


  • 12 oz Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 ½ Cups Almonds roasted & unsalted
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Coat the inside of your crockpot with cooking spray.
  • Add in butter, chocolate, vanilla and almonds
  • Set the slow cooker to low and cover
  • This will take only 30 minutes, but set a timer for every 10 minutes to stir.
  • Line two cookie sheets with wax paper
  • After the chocolate has melted and is smooth, scoop the chocolate covered almonds out onto your cookie sheets making 1 inch balls (Think the size of a golfball)
  • Sprinkle with the sea salt. I did just enough to decorate the cookies and give a salty contrast to the sweet chocolate.
  • Place the trays in the fridge so the clusters set up.
