Very quick and yummy cluster recipe.

I use leftover nuts and chocolate from holiday baking to make these and sometimes they’re gone faster than everything else.

Makes a great addition to holiday candies and makes a great gift for the nut lover with a sweet tooth. Sometimes I add mini M&M’s to add a little color, so they look more festive. Dried fruit and your favorite nut mixes instead of plain peanuts are good, too!
