Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete.

Lindsay and I are back today with another video in our new Primal + Keto Made Easy Cooking Series. (Check out past videos here. There will be many more to come over the next several weeks.)
This week we’ve got another great Primal + keto snack, and this time it’s a sweet treat anybody (Primal or not) will gravitate to. I’m cooking with two of my personal favorites: dark chocolate and macadamia nuts. Fair warning: be sure to make a good size batch.
Simmer a pot of water. Place a glass bowl on top of the pot, with the bottom of the bowl a few inches above the simmering water. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and melt them in the glass bowl, stirring with a spatula. Add macadamia nuts into the bowl of melted chocolate, and stir until everything is covered in chocolate.
Scoop the chocolate-covered nut clusters onto parchment paper using a teaspoon. Sprinkle sea salt on top, if desired. Refrigerate until hardened.
Or, if you’d like to make bark, pour the entire chocolate-nut mix onto a parchment paper-lined plate or sheet pan. Sprinkle sea salt on top, if desired.
Refrigerate clusters or barks until hardened. Use your hands to break up the hardened bark into smaller pieces—and enjoy!
