You should know something about me: when I get chocolate cravings, I bake. This is the result of one of those such cravings.
Almond Rocky Road Clusters
This recipe could be easily altered depending on your mood. Try tossing in different nuts, adding some peanut butter maybe, or even using vanilla or peppermint extract in place of almond. Makes approximately 2 dozen clusters.
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup whole almonds
3/4 cup mini marshmallows
1 tsp. almond extract
Melt chocolate over double boiler. Remove from heat. Stir in almond extract and almonds. Gently fold in marshmallows. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until set.
