2 cups crispy brown rice cereal (may substitute Rice Krispies)
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup toasted almonds, coarsely chopped
10 oz bag (1 3/4 cups) bittersweet chocolate chips; or bittersweet chocolate bar, chopped
coarse sea salt (optional)
In a large bowl, add rice cereal, cherries, and almonds. Toss to combine.
In microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate chips in 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until just a few unmelted chips are left; stop cooking and stir until all chips melt in and chocolate is completely smooth. (It's important not to overcook the chocolate.)
Pour melted chips into cereal mixture. Stir until cereal mixture is completely coated. Drop 1 tablespoon mounds of mixture onto parchment paper or silicone mats.
Optional: Before chocolate hardens, sprinkle each cluster with sea salt (if a sweet/salty flavor is desired).
Leave at room temperature until chocolate hardens completely (20-30 minutes). Store in airtight container at room temperature.
