Complete decadence! My store did not have almond bark or confectioner's coating so I got white baking chips and followed the melting directions on the package (it calls for adding shortening to the chips when you melt them). My macadamia nuts were dry roasted and lightly salted. I didn't measure the orange zest, just used all from one whole orange. I've eaten three of these clusters and I don't want to stop!



wow, fast, tasty and pretty, I love this, have made them moer than once for my christmas trays, people are always asking for the recipe! They are so quick, and decadent! I put them in little mini candy cups. (like chocolates in a box come in) Really dresses them up. Thanks, Cindy!



These are definitely 5 stars. My husband loved them and he is picky about sweet things. I used the white chocolate chips in a 2 cup pyrex and microwaved them on 10% (lowest power) in 10-15 second bursts until they were melted. Next time I will put the pyrex cup in warm water as I add the zest and nuts to keep the chocolate creamy.
