Salted Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Clusters

Salted Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Clusters l

I mentioned on Wednesday that despite the cool weather we’ve been having, I’ve been all about summertime desserts. Well, these salted dark chocolate trail mix clusters are some of those summertime desserts that I’ve been testing.

I know that soon enough I won’t want to turn on my oven and heat up the house, so I’m getting prepared ahead of time. We can’t be without dessert!

Salted Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Clusters Recipe l

Sweet and salty. Crunchy and creamy. Dark chocolate. What’s not to like?! These chocolate trail mix clusters consist of three ingredients and take hardly any time to make.

Just melt dark chocolate. Spread it in some small circles. Then just sprinkle on some trail mix and sea salt. I used an unsalted tropical mix because I like the flavors of the tropical fruit mixed with chocolate.

You could easily switch it up with whatever your favorite trail mix blend is if tropical fruit isn’t your thing.
