  1. Oh my, Thank you for this easy recipe, I have had a ball with this recipe……….
    I also added crasins, I added nuts, every kind, I also added smarties, (in Canada they would be like a M&M in the US) I also added tiny Oreo cookies from a snack pack, and little marshmellows,
    Thank you, from myself, and all the people I give them to that just love them….

  2. I was wanting to know a little more information about the chocolate. Did you melt a Hershey candy bar, chocolate chips, or what? I would love to make this for Christmas but I’m unclear about the chocolate. Thanks so much for all the delicious recipes! I’ve pinned and printed quite a few today in planning for the holidays.

    1. Hi Patti! Thanks so much for writing in and so glad you’ve found some recipes to try over the holidays.
      As far as the chocolate clusters goes, it really is flexible and you can choose any chocolate you like. It doesn’t need to be fancy nor expensive, any regular chocolate, f in a bar, break it up so it melts easier, chips, then just pop those in a bowl etc.
      I’ve used white and milk chocolate, just normal eating bars from the store and they were super.
      I’ve also added some raisins to some of the clusters, and cranberries to the white chocolate ones, so don’t worry about any specific ingredients.
      Go with what you like the most, it will still taste lovely!
      Wishing you and your family a lovely Christmas!

    1. That sounds delicious Linda! Thanks for your suggestion. You can really add so many different things to make it how you like. Glad you’re enjoying the recipes.
      Have a super day!
