I made these clusters for diwali. a little late to post them but its ok. as long as it gets out and gets posted. I used Ghirardelli 60% dark chocolate chips here, but any variety of chocolate chips can be used. All got over and I had just a few left,when I realised I had not taken any pictures, so I quickly grabbed my camera and clicked a few before they got over.
The chocolate did not harden up, so the clusters remained nice and soft. more like truffles actually. I think it was because of the cream I added. But the taste sure was really nice and chocolaty,with the right amount of bitterness and the right amount of sweetness.

here is the recipe

You will need
  • chocolate chips- 1 cup
  • powdered sugar- 1/2 cup (You will need to taste and then adjust the sweetness)
  • cream- 1/4 th cup
  • butter-1 tbsp.
  • Almonds- 1 cup.
you have to
  1. take a double boiler and melt the chocolate along with the butter. You can even do this in the microwave.
  2. once nicely melted, add the sugar. mix well. taste and adjust.
  3. add the cream and mix everything well.
  4. add the almonds. combine everything together.
  5. drop table spoons of the chocolate coated almonds onto a parchment paper or a greased baking sheet.
  6. refrigerate till set.
  7. keep refrigerated and use them to satisfy your chocolate, sugar rush.
