Milk chocolate clusters

 This year, more than ever, I have really tried to stock my kids’ lunch boxes with homemade snacks. It may have something to do with this little blog of mine…There are still the (healthy) chips and yogurt drinks, but on most days there is at least one homemade treat. It has been fun to try and come up with new snacks and so far there have been many hits. I love this recipe for milk chocolate clusters made with Corn Flakes. They could not be more simple and easy to make. They are ready in minutes, all you have to is let the chocolate set for them to be ready. Give it a try, I think they will be a hit in your house too.

When I make these for my kids, I omit the nuts and replace with more Corn Flakes or marshmallows, since their school in nut free. You can make substitutions as long as the ratio of dry ingredients and chocolate is kept the same. Do not worry if the mixture appears loose. Once the chocolate sets, the clusters will hold together perfectly.

Ingredients
  • 2½ cups Corn Flakes cereal
  • ½ cup golden raisins
  • ¼ cup unsalted pistachios, chopped (optional)
  • ½ cup (unsalted) hazelnuts, toasted and chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 oz white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 11 oz milk chocolate, roughly chopped
Instructions
  1. Prepare a cookie sheet covered in parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the Corn Flakes with the pistachios, hazelnuts, raisins and salt.
  3. Melt the chocolates in a microwave safe bowl stirring every 30 seconds to avoid burning the chocolate. Stir the chocolate until smooth and add to the Corn Flake mixture. Combine till the cereal is properly coated.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop, place rounds of the mixture onto the cookie sheet, using a spoon to keep cereal together. Allow at least one hour till the chocolate sets.
  5. Do not worry if the mixture appears loose. Once the chocolate sets, they will hold together perfectly.
