What kind of chocolate are you trying to garnish? Generally, yes, it's okay, but we would like to know what you're trying to accomplish. You'll get a better flavor from the pine nuts if you lightly toast them.

Sure, why not? Toasting them a bit will enhance their flavor.
What are you making?

Yes, they would taste better toasted.
