Chocolate Almond & Cranberry Clusters

Allergies: nuts, berries

The easy thing about clusters is that they don’t need to be baked in the oven. They just have to go in the fridge for 2 hours. Easy, peasy. Next to this several people have told me that it doesn’t get any better than this. They find it so delicious! If that isn’t reason enough to start making this cookie/candy right away, I don’t know what will. So here are Chocolate Almond & Cranberry Clusters.

Paul loves cranberries, so these were a hit with him. Some people I gave the clusters to, wanted them without the sea salt, but they were outnumbered. You would think that I only make cookies as a new recipe each day, but it was just because I was testing out which cookies I could offer for sale. This is one of the cookies/candy that was picked. See the process behind it here. The combination of dark chocolate, cranberries and almonds is divine. I found the recipe in Boodschappen magazine, a magazine with recipes and ads distributed by several supermarkets in The Netherlands.

Review

The recipe was good. There was not a lot of adjustment of the recipe needed, and it was delicious.
