Bridge Mix Clusters

BridgeMixClusters_zpsce170653

A bittersweet post: this recipe is dedicated to someone who I think would  have enjoyed these very much, but is no longer here to share them with – my father, who left us too soon this past October after a lengthy battle with cancer.  He loved sweets and a box of Bridge Mixture was one of his favorites, and something I always put in his stocking along with his favorite box of Pot of Gold.  He, and his love for chocolate are indescribably missed.

Whip up a batch of these and share them with someone you love.  Hug them tight. 

With that, here is the recipe:

  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp shortening
  • 1 rounded cup chopped Big Turk bars (I used a whole bag of Big Turk bites, chopped into thirds)
  • 1 box Milk Duds or other caramel candies, about 2/3 cup, chopped small
  • 3/4 cups salted peanuts
  • 3/4 cups raisins

Spread out lengths of parchment paper.  In a double boiler, melt both chocolates and shortening.  Stir in chopped Big Turk, Milk Duds, peanuts and raisins.  Drop by spoonfuls onto parchment and allow to fully firm before removing to a container.
