These turned out great but wasn't sure what bars of vanilla-flavoured candy coating were so left them out. Just added more white chocolate chips.

I would give this 5 stars for flavor and ease of preparation, but reduced it to 4 because the presentation wasn't very pretty, so I couldn't give them as gifts. When you stir all the pistachios and cherries into the chocolate, you lose the red and green color and it all turns out like a lumpy, off-white mixture. Next time I would pour the chocolate into the pan by itself and then sprinkle the nuts and cherries over the top. That way it would be red, green, and white - perfect Christmas colors! It was absolutely delicious, by the way. I'm still eating it now!

It doesn't get any easier--or more foolproof--than this. I halved the recipe, using almonds instead of more expensive pistachios, and it turned out fantastically. Despite my attempt at screwing up even this easy no-bake recipe (turned my head away from the microwave too long, and scorched the interior of the pile of white chocolate chips a light brown--but with a few tablespoons of water added and the chips stirred around, it turned a perfect creamy off-white), this recipe went off without a hitch, and disappeared at the social dance I brought it to. I even got the compliment, "Wow! This tastes like something I'd get at Kilwin's!"
