This was a big hit! I followed the recipe and made two batches. What I found helpful was to add a little water to the chocolate chips before microwaving; just enough to wet the chips, not a lot. This made the chocolate clusters easier to spoon out onto the cookie sheet. Also I did not have waxed paper so I laid the clusters onto aluminum foil and that was fine. If you're not comfortable adding water to the chocolate chips I dipped my spoon into water prior to spooning out clusters on to the cookie sheet and that helped.
I went looking for a recipe to use up some of my farfel, and this was perfect. I made two batches - one with chocolate chips, a few walnuts and a handful of dried sweetened cranberries, and one with just peanut butter chips. The PB batch was a bigger hit, with barely any left over even after the heavy sedar meal. I did find it was messy and challenging to drop the spoonfuls onto the wax paper, so I pressed about half of it onto wax paper, bar style, in a low sided pan. After chilling for a short period, it broke up easily into bite sized people. Next time I make this, I wouldn't bother with trying to drop them separately.
