A "Pile to File" Recipe ~ Cranberry Nut Clusters


I had a stash of chocolate left from last Christmas.  I had cashews that I had not yet made Curried Cashews with, and I had some organic dried cranberries for salads.

....and I had 10 minutes before my washing machine was done.

I made Cranberry Nut Clusters.  Easy, quick and delicious.  Another new, and amazingly quick, recipe.


12 oz. chocolate, melted
2/3 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup cashews


Melt chocolate, add last two ingredients, and drop by teaspoon to waxed paper.  Cool and store in airtight container.  I got about 28 candies.  It just depends on how big you make them.

Easy gift idea too!

I can't say all my recipes I will be trying will be this easy, but I will be filing it for the next holiday time.

I think I need to move to a healthy vegetable recipe next.  All this sugar. Oye.

Hubby came home from work feeling the best he's felt.  He offered to take our 16 year-old to her dentist cleaning for me.  Not sure if he was trying to get out of puppy duty or really helping me out with running around, ha ha!

Yesterday it snowed all day, but not one single peep of sunshine.  It was cloudy and showed continued signs of winter.  Today, there was enough snow for a school 2 hour delay.

Sounds yummy and gee, it'd be hard to make that recipe any easier. LOL
One sister was saying, when she read about the problem you were having with your neighbor, that our Dad would have lined the property boundaries with nail lined boards, so when someone rode close to them with wheeled vehicles, they'd get flattened tires, and he would have too. Yep!!! He had little tricks for taking care of pesky neighbors.
Praying everyone has a safe happy weekend.
God bless.
