Why didn't my peanut clusters harden?

by MM

I made peanut clusters but they didn't harden. They are a gooey mess. Can I fix them without starting over?

Please help.

Hi MM,

In order to help answer your question, we'd need more information. What peanut cluster recipe are you using?

Are you simply referring to a simple chocolate covered peanuts type candy like these peanut clusters or are you talking about a cooked sugar recipe like these peanut patties?

Maybe you are talking about something else entirely. Unless you give more details, we can't really help. :)

Crock pot peanut clusters not getting hard

They are still soft. I made them during Christmas and they got hard right away
