CRANBERRY WALNUT CLUSTERS
ounces dark chocolate
candy bar or 2 cups good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup walnut pieces
Slowly melt chocolate in the microwave or in the top of a double boiler but do not heat the chocolate any longer than necessary to melt. Stir in cranberries and walnuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto a waxed paper lined tray. Cool completely at room temperature. Candy sets up best below 70o. Do not refrigerate. Store at room temperature. Yields about 30 clusters.
Note: 12 ounces of candy making/dipping bar may be used instead of chocolate candy or chips.
VARIATION: Use Berry Medley (dried blueberries, cherries, cranberries, golden raisins) instead of dried cranberries.
