Chocolate Toffee Cashew Clusters

 Ok, first Christmas candy of the season today: 

3 cups chocolate chips

1 TSP vegetable oil

3 cups cashews

1 1/4 cups of toffee bits.

Melt chocolate chips & oil in microwave.  Melt for a minute, then stir.  Then in 30 second increments till all melted.  Add cashews & 1 cup of crumbles.  Mix together.  Drop by tablespoon onto waxed paper & sprinkle leftover toffee bits on top while wet.  Let harden & eat!

I'm always impatient so I put on a small cookie sheet & put in freezer for about 15 minutes because they were not hardening fast enough to suit me.

Also, the original recipe said to use "solid vegetable shortening" AKA Crisco.  I have not bought Crisco in 20 years & it was $4.29 at the grocery.  I figured it would just melt anyway so the oil worked fine. 

I test drove a couple.  Pretty yummy!   Before 6pm of course.
