Transfer nut mixture to a medium bowl and add brown rice syrup.  Stir until well combined.

Add dark chocolate to a small pot, warming over medium heat.  Stir constantly until smooth, then remove from heat.

Scoop approximately 1 rounded tablespoon of mixture into each prepared muffin cup.  Drizzle each nut cluster with dark chocolate.  Sprinkle clusters evenly with sea salt.
