I adapted this recipe from a peanut cluster recipe a couple of years ago.

It has been a Pesach favorite in my house ever since.


1 lb slightly salted almonds

1 cup brown sugar

½  cup honey

1 stick magarine

½ tsp salt

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp vanilla extract

1 lb semi sweet chocolate


Place the brown sugar,honey,margarine and salt in a med pot over a small-medium flame.

Stir constantly until it comes to a boil.

Let mixture boil exactly 5 minutes without stirring.

Add the vanilla and baking soda.

Mix well and add in the almonds.

Drop by tablespoons on heavy duty foil.

Freeze till firm.

Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or microwave.

Dip the clusters into the chocolate and refrigerate.

Yields 15-20 clusters
