I made this recipe to serve at a cocktail party, and was not disappointed. I received many compliments on these little clusters. I used hazelnuts instead of cashews because the darkness of the outer nut contrasted better with the white chocolate. I used best quality Belgian white chocolate instead of the Bakers chocolate listed in the recipe. Although the recipe says you can prepare them 4 hours ahead, I made mine 6 hours ahead, and they were fine, so you have a bit of room to play with the 4 hour time suggested. Thanks Mooseybear.
