Candy Countdown - Cranberry Clusters

I first saw these in a Christmas magazine years ago and thought they would be fun to try. They're delightfully different, and very easy to make, and it was a no-brainer to add them to our annual Christmas Candy list. Give them a try yourself sometime. (And go here for more pictures and here for a fun story.)
Cranberry Clusters

2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/8 cup corn syrup
2 teaspoons water
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional

Melt 1/3 cup chocolate chips with the corn syrup in the microwave. (This takes 30 seconds.) Add the water and other 1/3 cup chocolate and stir until smooth. Stir in the cranberries and nuts. Dollop onto waxed paper. Chill until firm.
