Dark Chocolate Covered Nut ClustersMADE BY VALERIE CONFECTIONS IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
“Remember the joy of stepping off that big yellow school bus and fixing yourself an after school snack? This is like that, but for grown-ups with sophisticated palates.”
This very good mix of crunchy, chocolate-covered almonds and pumpkin seeds is one of the tastiest cacao-drenched snacks to come across our tasting table in a while. With just enough brown sugar and sea salt to satisfy our sweet-savory cravings, we all kept going back for just one more handful.
It started out as a gluten-gree variation on chocolate-studded granola, but by the time Valerie Gordon of Valerie Confections was done, it had firmly crossed over from sort-of-cereal to incredible snack. She teamed up with the super-cool folks at Commune Design studio to produce this beautiful bag, as well as their Giant Fruit and Nut Dark Milk Chocolate Bar.
