Dark Chocolate Clusters {No-Bake}

Dark Chocolate Clusters

Dark chocolate clusters are what I make when I’m looking for a sweet treat but something that’s not too naughty. They are delicious and so easy to make using simple ingredients.

With these little clusters of bliss, you really only need two ingredients – nuts and chocolate. Whatever nuts you have on hand will do fine, although some work better than others. I use mainly walnuts with almonds and then top the dark chocolate with pumpkin seeds. One variation is to add dried cherries. Mmm.

Romesco Sauce {Spicy Almond Sauce}

Romesco Sauce

Romesco sauce is a popular sauce originally from Spain made from red peppers. Have you ever tried it? If not, you must.

I had not tried romesco until I tasted it at a cafe I frequent. It was to die for. I must have sampled it three or four times before I finally gave in and asked the cook which ingredients made up this heavenly sauce. With a smirk he says to me, “secret ingredients.” I flashed a polite smile … grrrr. After begging the cook to tell one ingredient it contained, he finally told me it’s almond-based.

Creamy Avocado Pesto

Creamy Avocado Pesto
Avocado pesto is definitely a treat.

With basil and pine nuts, the avocado pesto lends itself to classic pesto flavors with a twist. The first part of the twist is it’s packed with fiber-boosting broccoli that you can’t even taste. Secondly, it’s oil free yet still rich and creamy thanks to the avocado, which brings all the flavors together and adds a wonderful silky green color and texture.
