Chocolate Peanut Clusters


These chocolate peanut clusters are SOOO easy to make and so incredibly good! This was my dad's favorite Christmas candy and he liked them so well that he even requested them for his birthday. :) Again, this recipe makes a LOT so feel free to cut it in half, I always do and there are plenty!

Chocolate Peanut Clusters

4 cups roasted salted peanuts
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
24 ounces vanilla chips

Melt chips together, either in the microwave or in the top of a double boiler. Stir in peanuts. Drop onto waxed paper to harden for a couple of hours. That's it!! They are peanuty, chocolatey, salty yumminess!


I hope you all have enjoyed hanging out this week making Christmas candy! Here is a picture of one of the plates of goodies that the neighbors received.


I would like to wish you all a Happy Holiday and hope you get to share some time with family and friends!
