Saturday Do-It-Yourself: Peanut Clusters!

Posted by on Sat, January 3rd, 2015 at 10:59 am

Happy New Year everyone! A very common resolution is to eat healthier – but let’s put that on hold for just one more day! Today’s DIY comes to us from mammapia of Arcadia, CA!

I know that this recipe is too late for Christmas, however, you may make these treats for Valentine’s Day or as an any time indulgence. I usually make them for Christmas and package them in the cutest Dollar Store containers I can find. They also freeze well in Ziploc bags, so that you need only dip into the freezer for your chocolaty peanut fix. The recipe is easy and flexible, so that you may change up the type of nut or the type of chocolate.

Ingredients:

  • 1 – bag of milk chocolate chips (approx. 12 oz.)
  • 1 – bag of peanut butter chips (approx. 12 oz.)
  • 1 1/2 cups of Dry Roasted & Salted peanuts
  • Prep baking sheets with wax paper or parchment paper

Directions:

  1. Microwave the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips together, stirring every 45 seconds, until melted, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the peanuts and stir until well combined.
  3. Use a tablespoon to scoop out a portion and lay it out on the prepared pan.
  4. As you fill each tray, put them in the refrigerator until the candy has set, about 10 minutes.
  5. Put the candies in plastic bags or decorative containers and continue scooping until all the chocolate is gone.
  6. I usually get 32-36 large peanut clusters per batch.
  7. Enjoy!

These look amazing – thanks for sharing the recipe with us!
