  • 1 (6 oz.) pkg. (1 cup) semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 2 cups peanuts or cashews


In heavy medium saucepan, melt confectioners? coating and chocolate pieces over low heat, stirring constantly. Stir in peanuts or cashews. Drop mixture from teaspoon onto baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Chill until firm (about 30 minutes). Store tightly covered in refrigerator. Makes about 36 pieces.
Microwave directions: In medium bowl micro-cook confectioners? coating and chocolate pieces, uncovered, on 100% power (high) 2 1/2 to 3 minutes or until mixture becomes smooth when stirred. Stir in nuts. Continue as above.

To keep chocolate firm, remove only a few clusters at a time from refrigerator.
