CRANBERRY WALNUT CLUSTERS

12 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.
