chocolate-cherry clusters

Three ingredients, fifteen minutes prep time, an amazingly great snack: the Chocolate-Cherry Cluster.

From the January/February 2011 issue of Everyday Food Magazine.

Melt 10 ounces of bittersweet chocolate, mix in 3 cups of cornflakes that you’ve crushed slightly and half a cup of dried cherries until everything is covered in melted chocolate.  Drop by heaping tablespoons (I used a small ice cream scoop) onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Let cool until chocolate has hardened. Makes 18 clusters that won’t last long, trust me on this. These would make a delicious Valentine’s treat for that someone special. Also, if you love the combination of chocolate and cherries, you’ll flip for these. So, what’s your favorite Valentine’s sweet treat?
