Peanut Clusters

You just won't believe it.  These Peanut Clusters are so easy to make.  Just layer the ingredients in your slow cooker and a few hours later...ta-dah!  You have delicious peanut clusters. 

This recipe was given to me by a dear friend.  She made them for a get-together and graciously shared the recipe.  She calls it "Crockpot Candy".  It's a great treat to give to friends and relatives during the holiday season.

Here's what you'll need:
1 16-ounce container of dry roasted salted peanuts
1 16-ounce of unsalted dry roasted peanuts
1 12-ounce package of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 4-ounce bar of German chocolate
1 package of white almond bark (20 ounces)

Makes about 64 peanut clusters

Here's what to do:
Layer the peanuts in the bottom of your slow cooker.  Then layer the rest of the ingredients over the peanuts: white almond bark, chocolate chips, and German chocolate.

Put your slow cooker on low heat for 1 to 2 hours until all the chocolate is melted.  No need to stir until at least an hour and a half.  The chocolate will look "melty" on top of the peanuts.  

After 1 to 2 hours, stir ingredients together.

Using a tablespoon, dip out chocolate and peanut mixture in rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper. 

Let cool completely.

Store in airtight containers or bags. 

As you can see this recipe makes lots of peanut clusters!  It makes about 64 peanut clusters.  Here is a picture of my counter top with my peanut cluster palooza!

Happy Holidays!
