Tried your pecan cluster recipe. It did not turn out well. The mixture was too dry and the chocolate mixture would not cover the pecans.

Paula, This recipe is great! I substituted milk chocolate chips (12 oz) and added a teaspoon of my homemade Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. Oh SO GOOD!

For an extra chocolate flavor, substitute semi sweet chocolate chips for the chocolate kisses! Libbie Summers, Paula Deen Online Food Editor

I love you Paula but I followed the directions to the letter and these just weren't that great. Really rich but not real chocalatey.

This recipe is great. It sets up really fast so you muscle get a work out mixing in the sugar butter mixture. Paula rocks!!!
