Marbled Nut Clusters
Arrange these dainty confections in a decorative box with waxed paper between the layers for gift giving.
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate pieces
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped mixed nuts, peanuts, or cashews
1 (1-ounce) white chocolate baking square
- Place semisweet chocolate pieces in a heavy medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly just until melted. Stir in nuts. Spoon mixture by rounded teaspoons into 1 3/4-inch muffin cups lined with paper bake cups.
- Place white chocolate in a heavy small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly just until melted. Drizzle a small amount of the white chocolate atop each cluster; swirl gently with a toothpick to create a marbled effect. Chill until firm (about 30 minutes in refrigerator or 10 minutes in freezer).
Makes 24 pieces.
Make-Ahead Tip: Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks.
