Chocolate Peanut Clusters
I’m amazed at how simple these chocolate nut clusters are to make. They are great to give as gifts or to bring out after holiday meals. If you don’t have a double boiler then use a metal bowl over hot water.
1 Pound Chopped White Candy Coating
12 Ounces Semisweet Chocolate Chips
16 Ounces Dry Roasted Peanuts (Salted or Unsalted)
Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a double boiler or metal bowl over hot water, melt the candy coating and chocolate chips. Stir until nice and smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. If you don’t have parchment paper then waxed paper will work fine for this recipe. Place into the fridge for 20 minutes until set. Store in airtight containers. Makes about 2 1/2 pounds.
White candy coating is a vanilla flavored product that melts easily and then sets firmly and quickly creating a glossy finish. It comes in either a solid block or a package of small thin wafers or discs. White candy coating is NOT the same as white chocolate.
