My sister Jody and I have made these for years. They are quick, inexpensive, stretch the budget, and make a wonderful gift. Before the chocolate sets up you can top with holiday themed or colored sprinkles for a real festive touch.
12 oz. Candy Melts (Wilton) OR chocolate chips OR bark – dark, milk or white chocolate
12-14 oz. nuts of your choice Sprinkles if desired
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paperHeat chocolate in a microwaveable safe bowl at 20 second intervals; stirring well to prevent burning.
Continue this process until the chocolate is completely smooth and it is the temperature of a baby bath so that when you add the nuts it will not cool down before you are able to make the clusters.Add in your desired amount of nuts, but be sure to allow enough chocolate to cover the nuts completely.Stir well.Form clusters by filling a teaspoon and push off with the back of another teaspoon.If the chocolate happens to begin to harden up by cooling quicker than the clusters are formed, simply put the bowl in the microwave and heat for a few seconds, stir, repeat until warm as a baby bath.
Continue forming clusters. Allow the candy set up and store in a covered container.
