This five ingredient Christmas Dessert is easy to make and perfect for neighbor gifts and Christmas parties.

Hello all my 36th Avenue friends!!! Hope you are having a wonderful kick off to December! The countdown is on. Schedules are jam packed & the list of things to do just seems to be getting longer – right?! When life gets crazy I resort back to my favorite quick & easy recipes to keep me going. If I can whip up something in just a couple minutes then I have more time for everything else. With all the demands of the holidays – I try to keep things as simple as possible. You know what – those seem to be the things that family & friends enjoy the most anyway. So I came up with these Holiday Coco Clusters that prep in just 10 minutes + chill time. See – I told you they were simple.

Christmas Recipes - Five Ingredient Coco Clusters

For years my mother-in-law would make other varieties of these little chocolaty bites. When we would visit – I would be the one that never left the snack tray. I would eat them all. She was the queen of little snacky type goodies. If I learned anything from her – it was to take what you know you already like & just keep playing & twisting it to come up with even better versions. That’s how these came about. While we still love the original version – these are pretty amazing too.
