Peanut Clusters



One of my favorite Christmas traditions is making goodies with my former college roommate. Yesterday was the big day and since I haven't shared a recipe in a while I thought I'd let you in on our peanut cluster recipe because they are insanely good, embarassingly easy, and it makes a ton. Perfect for your holiday gatherings.

We tried them last year for the first time and they've definitely solidified themselves a spot in the yearly rotation.

So let's get cooking! Got your aprons on? :)


Here is what you need:
2 lbs white almond bark
1 (12oz) bag semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (12oz) bag milk chocolate chips
2 lbs salted blanched peanuts

To make:
Melt the white almond bark and chocolate chips in the microwave. Stir in the salted peanuts and spoon the desired cluster sizes on to a waxed paper sheet. Let harden.

That's it. Yield = around 150 clusters.

I've got to say, this year we were especially efficient. Check out all this candy and we had some put away with more to go!



The only problem? We only have one treat with color that we "love." We've tried other recipes but haven't found one that is a keeper.

Soooooo.....now that you know our dilemma will you share your favorite "pretty" homemade candy with me? Recipes and links in the comments WELCOME. Thank you!

  1. I love almond bark pretzels. Easy to make, can be full of color and the kids can help.

    Instead of using the small pretzels, use the large pretzel rods and dip about 1/3 of the end in. Lay on cookie sheet lined with wax paper and put on any sprinkles you would like. I usually use white almond bark. You can also dip the other end if you would like and then most of the pretzel is covered.
