Prepare the Chocolate Clusters
Yields 15 large clusters
In a heatproof bowl placed over a pot of boiling water, combine chocolate and pareve whipping cream. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth. Remove bowl from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, combine ladyfingers, nuts, dried cranberries, potato chips, and salt in a large bowl. Pour chocolate mixture into the bowl. Stir until everything is coated.
Wait about five minutes, until mixture is thickened slightly, then take a small handful of the mixture and squeeze together to form a cluster. Place cluster onto a Gefen Easy Baking Parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat until you form about 15 clusters.
Top with a small sprinkling of coarse salt.
Plan Ahead: These can be frozen in an airtight bag until ready to serve.
When crushing the ladyfingers and potato chips, it’s best to do it by hand. Don’t crush until crumbs form; leave them with some texture.
