Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Clusters
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips
  • coarse salt (I used Himalayan pink salt)
Instructions
  1. Toast the pecans by placing them on a baking sheet and putting them in a 350° oven for 5 - 10 minutes or until fragrant. This enhances the flavor.
  2. Let the pecans cool, then very coarsely chop them. They should still be in large pieces.
  3. Combine the pecan pieces, cranberries, and cinnamon in a bowl.
  4. In a microwave safe dish that is large enough to hold the chocolate, pecans and cranberries, melt the chocolate chips according to package instructions.
  5. Add the pecans and cranberries to the melted chocolate and stir to coat.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of the fruit and nut mixture onto a wax paper lined baking sheet.
  7. Sprinkle with coarse salt.
  8. Chill until the chocolate hardens.
Notes
If you need them to chill quickly, put them in the freezer for 5 - 10 minutes.
