Helpful items used in making Chocolate Chunky Clusters:

  1. Rocking Chopping Knife– A favorite rocking knife to coarsely chop nuts.
  2. 4 Cup Measuring Cup– This big measuring cup is a favorite for measuring big amounts and melting chocolate.
  3. Sauce Pan– A favorite non stick sauce pan with a lid.
  4. Wooden Mixing Spoons– We love a sturdy wood mixing spoon when baking.

Tips in melting chocolate:

Chocolate chips can be easily melted in the microwave, double boiler, or a saucepan. The secret is low setting and stirring in intervals until melted and smooth.

Be sure to avoid all contact with any moisture or water when melting the chocolate. This will prevent seizing and your chocolate from turning into a pasty mess.

    How can I make this recipe without the peanut butter?

  2. Momma Cyd says:

    You could substitute it with another creamy spread that is the same consistency. Cookie butter is a good option.
