Easter candy makes a lovely teacher gift.

This candy would also be a nice Easter lovey for teachers and would look beautiful wrapped in clear cellophane bags and tied with pink & white raffia or curly ribbon.

What white chocolate melts the best?

These candy clusters are made with white chocolate (which really isn’t chocolate lol) and M & M’s. My choice of white chocolate for this recipe is Ghirardelli. Their white chocolate melts are made specifically for melting and are smooth and creamy and much easier to work with than some other white chocolates.

Which nuts are best for Easter candy clusters?

I used the salted Virginia peanuts in these candy clusters. They are the crunchiest peanuts you can buy, and their saltiness is the perfect compliment to the sweetness.  You can also use almonds. If you use almonds, I suggest slivered roasted or raw (your preference).

  1. When the M&M’s are stirred into the still warm white chocolate, do they melt slightly? I was thinking I’d refrigerate M&M’s for awhile before mixing to keep that from happening. What fo you think?
