Chocolate Quickie Clusters

Another recipe from my mom's file. I remember her making these in the late 1960s or early 1970s. They use to be very popular and are kind of different. La Choy was one of the first brands available to Americans for Asian cooking at home.

Chocolate Quickie Clusters

1 cup chocolate morsels
3 Tablespoons corn syrup
1 Tablespoon water
1 cup Chow Mein noodles
1 cup salted peanuts

Melt chocolate morsels with corn syrup and water; stir to blend. Add noodles and nuts. Stir gently until coated. Drop by teaspoonfuls on tin foil. Chill until firm.

Years ago, these were all the rage.

I used to make them for my children using corn flakes.

We used to make those when we were kids. They sound strange but they're really good.

Yep, they have that great combination of salty & sweet. My late MIL used to make them every year for Christmas, and they were always the first to disappear. Great recipe.
