My contribution to Thanksgiving Dinner today was your idea to add chocolate chips/coconut to the banana bread. It was a hit........not a slice left!!! :dinner:

How about an edible gift? I have a recipe for Rocky Road Granola Clusters I got from Safeways holiday website (safeway.com/holiday)



Package these clusters (or popcorn) in decorative boxes. Line them with wax paper or wrap boxes in cellophane. Look for sesame sticks in grocery markets that sell bulk nuts, candies, and snack mixes.

Yield: 2 dozen


* 1 (16-oz.) package chocolate candy coating, chopped
* 2 tablespoons shortening
* 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
* 2 to 3 cups coarsely chopped granola bars
* 3/4 cup sesame sticks or thin pretzels
* 3 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted
* 1 cup miniature marshmallows
* 12 caramels, chopped

1.Combine chocolate coating and shortening in a large microwave-safe bowl; cover loosely with heavy-duty plastic wrap. Microwave at HIGH 11/2 minutes or until melted, stirring once. Stir in peanut butter. Let stand 2 minutes. Stir in granola bars, sesame sticks, and almonds. Stir in marshmallows and caramels last so they don't melt. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment or wax paper. Let clusters stand until firm.
