One of my absolute favorite snack is a combination of almonds, raisins and some M&M’s. It is so addicting and I even have my kids hooked on the mixture. Plus it always make me feel better when I add some good-for-you foods to the sometimes-food, M&M’s, right?
So here is a super simple Chocolate Nut Cluster!
They remind me of my No Bake Cookie recipe but even easier! Yes, really! In a small bowl combine granola, crushed pecans, sliced almonds and raisins.
Add some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and mix together. I melted the chocolate chips with the mixture the first time but I would suggest melting the chocolate chips separate like I noted in the recipe. Oops, the raisins plumbed up and I was thinking, “Oh my, what is this!” But don’t worry, they actually turned out pretty good the second time, when I melted the chocolate separate. Scoop with a cookie dough baller and freeze. Keep in freezer until ready to eat! So simple you don’t even need a recipe!
Okay, so I will give you a recipe . . .
