Chocolate peanut clusters are that perfect and delightful combination of sweet and delicious chocolate melded with salty and rich peanuts. Mmmm!
Sometimes you can mix it up a bit with some additional flavors to your liking. Maybe you'd enjoy a little peanut butter, perhaps marshmallow or maple cream. What about caramel? Do you have a favorite combo?
If you prefer to make your own chocolate and peanut cluster delights. It's not so difficult to do. In fact, it's one of the easiest candy treats to create.
I love simple recipes! This Peanut Clusters recipe is so quick and easy to make, you will have a smile on your face before you even take the first bite.
These chocolate nuts are a great way to whip up something quickly when you are looking for a homemade treat to take to someone for any occasion.
I like to use salty peanuts for this chocolate covered peanuts recipe because I really relish the blend of the sweet chocolate and salty nut flavors.
Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler, stirring until smooth. If you'd like, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave by heating 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each time. Do not overheat!
Remove chocolate from heat and stir in the condensed milk and the peanuts. Be sure to mix them well.
Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container. Yummmm!
Happy munching! Be sure to share. :)
