The combination of ingredients is quite tasty! I make traditional peanut clusters every Christmas so I was skepical about using white chocolate. This recipe will now become a staple for me to make during Christmases to come! (I melted everything in the microwave and it worked great!)

These are alright... My family and I made them this holiday season... but I don't think we need to make them again next year. They had a funky taste to me. :/

Fantastic, had no issues with the recipe at all, I doubled the batch so I could use the entire bag of toffee bits, it made quite a few. My hubby likes it as much, if not more than the traditional chocolate kind. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Oh, yeah, I never do the double boiler thing with almond bark, I microwave! Less stuff to wash up!

Love this recipe--make sure you make the drops fairly small. The nurses at the hospital and my study group are now in love with these too...excellent recipe!

Be careful, these are dangerously habit forming. Yum! Thanks for sharing, Carol. By the way, to reduce "fussing time" I put the candy coating and chips into a pyrex bowl and microwaved on medium for 3 minutes to melt.

I'm a beginner cook, and I wanted to try to make some treats for chrsitmas this year. These were a big hit! However I had to change a few things around: Like Maggie said I cut the fuss time in half by using the microwaveable bowl. And instead of droping by rounded spoonfuls I just lined the baking sheet with waxed paper and poured it out into one big piece, then broke it all apart later after it had cooled into randomly shaped pieces haha. Overall, I love this recipe and so did my family! I will make again.

I have been looking for this recipe. I melted choclate bits (I don't like white choclate) in the micro and added 1 whole can of spanish peanuts. Spanish nuts the best . Dropped 1 heaping tablespoon on waxed paper till cooled. I did not have toffe but think this would be even better
