Chocolate Nut Clusters

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening ( do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil)

Place the chocolate chips and shortening in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at High ( 100%) for 1 minute, stir . If necessary, microwave at HIGH for an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth when stirring. Stir in the nuts. Spoon heaping teaspoons into 1 inch Paper candy cups or paper-lined small muffin cups, filling each cup about half full.

Refrigerate until firm. Peel off the paper cups and store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
