Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Line two large baking sheets with waxed paper or parchment paper; set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl combine dark chocolate pieces and shortening. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Add cereal, almonds and cranberries; stir to completely coat with chocolate mixture.

  • Using a 1- to 2-tablespoon cookie scoop (see Tip), pack mixture into scoop; drop onto the prepared baking sheets. Chill about 1 hour or until set. Store in the refrigerator.


Tip: If you do not have a cookie scoop, use two tablespoons and lightly pack the mixture between the spoons before dropping onto prepared baking sheets.

To make ahead: Layer clusters between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 1 month.
