Just three offbeat ingredients add up to one unique, delectable, no-bake treat. These super-easy, sweet-and-salty candy clusters make for merry munching during holiday trips or parties. They travel well in containers without melting or getting soft. —Donna Brockett, Kingfisher, Oklahoma

    "This definitely deserves 5 stars. It is simple and quick. It's also delicious. My local store was out of the baking chocolate bars so I used Ghiradelli white chocolate baking chips and they worked great. For simplicity, I placed mini muffin liners in mini muffin tins before dropping by tablespoonfuls. It made for easier transport to the fridge to set. I have made this several times and have got the 3 dozen each time. I think the size depends on what size you crunch the potato chips and nuts.

    "The 5 star rating for this recipe is easily earned. Just 3 Ingredients never tasted so good. The Mixture quickly sets up which makes it a perfect choice for a last minute treat. The small clusters are sweet, salty and slightly crunchy. Be sure to double the recipe as the original makes under 2 dozen treats. I dressed mine up with a few chocolate chips just to add a bit of color and I also added a tsp of Vanilla to the melted white chocolate. It has been requested for next years Tray of Chocolates.

    "I made these for a party last night and they are not only quick and easy but delicious. I followed the recipe but my white chocolate came in a 20 oz. package so I just cut it in half. The recipe only made 20 clusters. I will probably double it next time. We loved the sweet/salty flavor. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."

    "These are VERY tasty & i agree with Bonnmarche...betcha can't eat just one! first batch I made I followed the directions to a 'T'. Second batch I made with milk chocolate and walnuts. Not nearly as good as the white chocolate. The white tasted very light. LOVE these little babies!"

    "I love these! I made it as the directions said and then this weekend my son reminded me that he was supposed to take something for his FFA bake sale. I decided to dip whole potato chips individually in white chocolate and then drizzled them with some melted semi-sweet chips. We dipped a few as 1/2 & 1/2. The crumbs I mixed as samples to get people hooked. Everyone loved them and they sold out in no time!"

    "Yes! It is that easy! And everyone will be talking about them. Even people who THINK they won't like them can't eat just one. The first time I made them following directions exactly but had to substitute M&Ms for the nuts. Now I wouldn't dream of not adding candy-- using seasonal color gives that extra touch. Like others, I made out of need to use up chips, now they are a favorite!"
