Cooling Time: 45 min
Yields: 36 clusters (3 dozen)


Chopped pecans, ramen noodles and creamy NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels combine to make these tasty Crunchy Pecan Clusters. Created by Stephanie K. Johnson, Stone Mountain, GA.


  • 3 pkgs. (3 oz. each) ramen noodles (any flavor)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels


LINE two baking sheets with wax paper.

PLACE noodles in large bowl. Discard noodle seasoning packets or save for another use. Break up noodles into pieces 1/2 inch or smaller in size with wooden spoon. Or, place noodles in resealable plastic bag. Seal bag and break up noodles with rolling pin; transfer to a large bowl. Add pecans to noodles in bowl.

MELT butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add the noodle mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes or until noodles and pecans just begin to brown. Remove mixture from skillet to large bowl; cool slightly.

MELT morsels in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Pour melted morsels over noodle mixture in bowl. Toss until noodle mixture is completely coated. Drop by rounded teaspoons into mounds onto prepared baking sheets (mixture will appear loose, but will hold together when set). Let stand for 45 to 60 minutes or until set.

Surprising and very versatile!

I've made this many times and have tried several combinations of morsels, nuts and other ingredients. Have loved all! Have added coconut for a good result. White chocolate and butterscotch morsels with peanuts and miniature marshmallows have been the best yet! Put the marshmallows in after the noodle mixture has cooled a bit.

I alternated this recipe by using peanut butter chips and chopped peanuts. I also made a batch of clusters by changing the nuts to almonds and still using white choc chips. Loved them both..
