"I've made these every year for the past 5 years and they've been a hit every year! My changes are that I use roasted, slivered almonds instead of macadamia nuts, omitted the peel, and used white chocolate chips instead of chopping up baking chocolate."

"This sounds really good, but I have one question: Are craisins dried cranberries? If not, where in the grocery store do I look for dried cranberries?"
