Triple Chocolate-Nut Clusters

Pat Morris


I got this recipe from Southern Living some years ago, and regularly make it as "Thank you" gifts, and treats for friends who stop by. This recipe uses three kinds of chocolate and 3 kinds of nuts. These are absolutely delicious and one of the easiest candy confections you will ever make. I sometimes use the cocktail party nuts. You can use any kind of nuts that you like, as long as the amounts and sizes are close to what the recipe calls for. Let me know how you like this recipe -I think you will enjoy it and everyone will be wanting your recipe.
