These cluster cookies are a no-bake treat that kids and adults will love. With just 3 ingredients -- cornflakes, dried cherries, and melted chocolate -- you can create a dessert that is ready in about 15 minutes.


  • 3 cups cornflakes

  • ½ cup dried cherries

  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped (1 ¾ cups)


  1. In a large bowl, break cornflakes into small pieces with your fingers. Add cherries and toss together.

  2. Place 2/3 cup chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl set over (not in) a pot of simmering water. Stir occasionally until chocolate melts, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add remaining chocolate, stirring until melted. (Alternatively, microwave the chocolate in a bowl in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until melted.) Pour over cornflake mixture and, with a rubber spatula, gently fold just until cereal and cherries are completely coated.

  3. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto 2 parchment-lined baking sheets and let set in a cool, dry place, 1 hour.
