12 Treats of Christmas - Day 1 - Chewy Chocolate Cluster Candy

Welcome to the Haphazard Homestead's 12 Treats of Christmas!  For the next dozen days, I'll be featuring some tried and true recipes for holiday treats, both sweet and savory.

Credit for the first treat goes to Mennonite Girls Can Cook, where I originally found the recipe.

Chewy Chocolate Clusters

1 12-oz pkg. chocolate chips
2/3 cups butter
1 bag marshmallows (large or mini)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups crisp rice cereal
1 cup shredded coconut

Melt chocolate chips, and butter over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Add marshmallows; stir until melted and smooth.

Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, then add cereal and coconut until dry ingredients are well-coated.

Drop by spoonfuls (or use a small ice cream scoop) onto a cookie sheet or on to waxed paper.

Roll in additional coconut if desired.

Chill until set.

Makes 4-6 dozen, depending on size.
