Here's a quick, really easy, but best of all, delicious recipe to make the best chocolate clusters. It's so easy, I hesitate to even call it a recipe! The add in's can be pretty much anything you like with chocolate from any kind of nut or dried fruit to coconut or marshmallows. And in this case, including cornflakes gives it an extra crunch.
Just melt, double boiler method, a good quality dark chocolate. I used some good Belgian chocolate for mine.
Start with about a generous 1/2 cup of chocolate. You can always add in more.
Chop your chocolate into small pieces and place in a heat proof bowl over very low simmering water.
Stir the chocolate occasionally til it melts. Be careful not to let the water get above a simmer.
Once the chocolate is all melted, take the pan off the heat but keep the bowl over the water.
Then just put the add in's into the melted chocolate and stir to combine. You can add as much or as little as you like. The cornflakes make a really nice crunchy cluster. If you like chunky bars, the combo of raisins and peanuts is great, too!
Then scoop out teaspoonfuls and either place on waxed paper in clusters or, as my photo shows, I used small muffin paper cups. Refridgerate til set.
A perfect Valentine's Gift! Yum!!
