  • 200 g white chocolate block, broken into squares, or chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups (150g / 5.3 oz.) raw whole walnuts


  • Line Baking Tray: Line a flat baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Prepare Chocolate: Set up a double boiler with a heat-proof bowl over simmering water and add the broken up white chocolate. Alternatively, melt the chocolate in the microwave in short bursts, stirring until smooth.
  • Melt Chocolate: Gently melt the chocolate over the simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.
  • Add Walnuts: Once the chocolate is completely melted and smooth, turn off the heat. Pour in the walnuts and stir until they are well coated in the chocolate.
  • Form Clusters: Using a teaspoon or fork, scoop out small bundles of walnuts, allowing the excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl. Place them on the lined tray, ensuring they stay together in clusters.
  • Repeat: Continue with the remaining walnut and chocolate mixture. If there is leftover chocolate and no walnuts, add extra walnuts to use up the remaining chocolate and create more clusters.
  • Chill: Transfer the tray with the clusters to the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour or until they are set. Enjoy!


  • Store: Keep the clusters in an airtight container, refrigerated, for 1 week – 10 days.
