Potato Chip Clusters

I love weird combinations.  Things that sound strange together.  Ingredients that make you think twice.  I've got a 3-ingredient goodie for you to try.  I usually make these as part of the goodie plates I take to the neighbors for Christmas.  Three ingredients.  White chocolate.  Potato chips.  Poke a couple of tiny holes in a whole bag of chips--to let the air out.  Then go to town on it with the flat side of a meat tenderizer mallet.  Freeze the leftover chip crumbs until the next time you make this candy.  The third ingredient is pecan chips.  Sometimes pecan "chips" are really a smaller-sized chopped pecan.  Other times pecan "chips" are very fine, like your crushed potato chips.  For this recipe you want the really small pecan chips.  (Terry)
9 squares (1 oz each) white baking chocolate
2 C crushed potato chips
1/2 C pecan chips
In a large microwave bowl, melt white chocolate.  Stir in potato chips and pecan chips.  Spray mini muffin tins with a baking spray and fill each cup with the mixture.  Refrigerate until set.  Makes 2 dozen.  If you don't have mini muffin tins.  Drop by tablespoons onto a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
