Potato Chip Clusters

Just three offbeat ingredients add up to one unique, delectable, no-bake treat. These super-easy, sweet-and-salty candy clusters make for merry munching during holiday trips or parties. They travel well in containers without melting or getting soft. —Donna Brockett, Kingfisher, Oklahoma

      These are EXCELLENT! I made them with orange chocolate baking chips for Halloween. Substituted the chopped pecans for low salt dry roasted peanuts which I had. Everyone loved them. Making more for Thanksgiving.

      This is a great treat. I was curious to try it because it was so unusual, but they are delicious and easy to make. You can't just eat one!

      These are delicious. Though I'm on a diet, I could have just one...what a bummer, so I made these for my boys as a quick pick-me up and they loved them!
