Chocolate Peanut Clusters were a classic Christmas treat around my house when I was growing up. The delicious taste of the sweet and salty together makes these the perfect treat. Chocolate Peanut Clusters are unbelievably easy to make, and when you are having unexpected company, they are just what you want to make to wow your guest. I must say that they are a great addition to my Christmas gift boxes this year also. Instead of dropping spoonfuls of the clusters on to waxed paper, I decided to use a scoop and drop the clusters into a mini muffin pan lined with mini muffin papers. Whether you are making them for gift giving, company coming, or just to have some around the house, you can't go wrong with mixing chocolate and peanuts together for that perfect treat.
Chocolate Peanut Clusters
36 mini muffin paper liners
1 lb. Milk Chocolate
16 oz. lightly salted peanuts
Line a mini muffin tin with mini muffin papers. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate in the microwave 2-4 minutes at 30 SECOND intervals stir after each interval until the chocolate is creamy and smooth. Immediately, add peanuts and stir until well mixed. Using a 1-inch scoop, drop mixture into mini muffin papers. Allow to sit and harden or place in the refrigerator to harden quickly.
