DIRECTIONS

  • Line 4 miniature muffin pans with candy cups; set them aside. (Or you can skip the paper candy cups and just drop these by the spoonful onto wax paper lined cookie sheets.).
  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the coconut and nuts on separate cookie sheets.
  • Bake each until golden brown, about 9 minutes for the nuts and 10 for the coconut, stirring every few minutes to keep them from burning. Let them cool.
  • Combine the toasted coconut and nuts in a medium-size bowl. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave according to the package directions.
  • Add the melted chocolate to the coconut mixture; stir well. Drop the mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls into the candy cups (or directly onto lined cookie sheets). Chill until set, about 45 minutes.
  • If desired, melt additional chocolate according to the package directions.
  • Pour the contents into a zipper bag. Snip off a small corner of the bag, then drizzle the chocolate over the clusters.
  • Chill until drizzle is set, about 15 minutes.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
