Chocolate Clusters

Chocolate clusters are an easy and delicious no bake treat, which you can adjust to your personal tastes. You can make it with your favourite chocolate and some cornflakes or jazz it up with nuts, dessicated coconut, dried fruits, candy pieces and sprinkles to make it a festive and indulgent treat.

This blogpost was updated on December 1st, 2022 with new photos and adjustments to the recipe.

To make these chocolate clusters you do not need very much. Some cornflakes (branflakes work too, but they will be harder) and chocolate. I added some almond slivers and white chocolate as decoration, but that is really optional. You could possibly add mini marshmallows or peanut butter chips (you can’t buy them where I live). You can buy something very similar here, but they are really overpriced.

They also make a lovely last minute gift, as you can make them in under one hour. What else can you make and wrap in under one hour? The following recipe will give you about one baking sheet of chocolate mountains. Choose whatever chocolate you like best, or make several different kinds. It is really up to you. Though I would not suggest making too many and keeping them at home. They won’t keep well around people, if you catch my drift.
