Everything you need to make these yummy clusters are shown in the photo. One thing I didn’t think about was the fact the M&M’s become a bit fragile when folded into the warm, melted white chocolate.

If there are any broken M&M’s, the chocolate will melt out and streak through the white chocolate. It really doesn’t alter the taste or look but I just wanted you to know that going into it.

I just used two spoons to drop a random blob onto a lined baking sheet. I used a silicone liner but you can use parchment too. You could also use a small cookie scoop but I wanted a very rustic look to the clusters.

I didn’t want them all the same size or shape. Let them chill out in the fridge, not freezer for at least an hour but definitely until they are set. Once set try not to handle them too much.

Package up white chocolate snack clusters for hostess gifts or party favors.

If you are packaging them up for favors, let them come to room temperature. You risk them sticking together if you don’t. Gift these to teachers, party guests, use as a place card. I gave a couple to administrative assistants at school this week and they were very well received. I got smiles all around!

M&M's, Peanuts and Pretzels, Oh my! The perfect balance of sweet and salt in these white chocolate snack clusters. #BrunchWeek #SweetsSquad #ad
