Step 1: The Recipe
Quick & Easy Nut Clusters
makes 2 to 3 dozen
12 oz. semi sweet Chocolate chips
6 oz. butterscotch chips
1 lb nuts
optional: 1/4 bar of gulf wax**
**Gulf wax is a candy grade paraffin wax found in the baking isle near the gelatin and jam making supplies. It helps the chocolate harden so it won't melt when handled. It also makes it easier to mix the chocolate with the nuts. A box comes with 4 bars of wax.
I usually double this recipe to make a huge batch!
Step 2: Step 1: Melt Chocolate and Butterscotch
If you choose to use the Gulf wax, which I always do, add it here as well. Cut the 1/4 bar of wax into as small of chunks as possible. This helps it melt faster.
Step 3: Step Two: Mix the melted chocolate with the nuts
Pour melted chocolate over the nuts and stir until all the nuts are completely covered.
Step 4: Step 3: Spoon out clusters.
As promised, that's it and you're done! Store chilled, in an airtight container, in the fridge for up to two to three weeks. The butterscotch chips help give extra flavor to the candy. Considering the output, this choco-nut-cluster gives you great bang for your time and buck!
