Almond Cherry Clusters ~ Gift Giving Idea

  Almond Cherry Clusters by Tiffany

“Some recipes require very few ingredients, yet they are SO good.”  

I’m a chocoholic, I’ll admit. I love it. If I could marry it, I would. 😉 I have a slight addiction to Costco and their goodie isle, you know the isle, it’s the isle with all the chocolatey goodness that’s somewhat over priced. I’ll walk down this isle looking for ideas that I can come home and recreate, because I’m too thrifty to pay for something I can do myself. When I saw their Almond Cherry Clusters, I knew I had to make them. Dark chocolate, almonds and plump dried cherries. Full of goodness! I’m in, how about you?!

These also make a great little hostess gift for your hostess with the mostess. With the holidays fast approaching us, and invites to dinner parties/parties these make a quick inexpensive gift. I always bring a little something for the hostess. It’s a way for me to say, “Thank you for opening up your home.” Wrap them in a clear plastic cellophane bag and tie festive ribbon around and you have yourself a yummy gift for that special hostess or friend.
