Today I made my first holiday treat of the season. It is non-bake and involves only 15 active minutes. Such a quick and easy and yet delicious dessert or snack during the pre-holiday season. There are different ways to make chocolate/nut clusters. You can line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop the chocolate mixture by tablespoon, or use a chocolate/candy mold. I bought a silicone mini cup sheet yesterday and it turned out to be the perfect mold for chocolate. Once cooled and hardened, the clusters can be easily popped out of the little cups without breaking or crumbling.
