Correction to Yesterday's Recipe

Hi Folks,

I did not catch that the 1/2 cup symbol came through as a ? mark. Sorry about that - I sure hope it didn't frustrate anyone.

Here are the corrected recipes.

Jean Carper's GOOD-for You Candy
Chocolate Cherry Clusters

2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups cheerios cereal
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup walnut pieces

Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler or microwave. Quickly stir in the cereal, cherries and nuts until well coated. Use tablespoon to drop clusters on baking sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes or refrigerate for 2 hours until no longer sticky. Makes about 24 clusters 137 calories, 2 grams Protein and 2 grams of fiber.

Catherine's Version of Chocolate Cheerio Candy
(The 60% cocoa is a better option for maximum dark chocolate health benefit - any dried red or blue fruit will work for the antioxidant helper.)
3 cups Ghiradelli 60% cocoa chips
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup of walnut pieces
1 1/2 cups of Cheerios

Still a fun recipe for any holiday or anytime you want to treat yourself to something tasty and has some good things in it too!

Have a safe Black Friday and weekend,

-- Catherine, The Herb Lady
