Easy Peanut Clusters

Easy Peanut Clusters created by Karen..

This candy is a must for gifts, parties, or special occasions, especially if your time is limited. NOTE: The butterscotch chips will NOT melt. When they are soft, they look shiney. Do not overcook, as the chocolate will burn. You may use more peanuts if desired. I usually throw in more to make sure the last pieces have some nuts in them.

    I had to heavily alter the recipe because I live in New Zealand, and they don't have butterscotch chips. I used Nestle Melts instead, 2 cups milks choc and 1 cup dark chic to each cup salted roasted peanuts. They were SUPER easy and didn't last very long. Very much a win!

    These were awesome! I made them as gifts this past Christmas and for my office party! I did not have any left and many people asked for the recipe. This one is definitely a keeper for me! I love chocolate covered peanuts and now I can make them anytime I want to for a fraction of the cost!

    As a mom of 5 boys, I don't have a lot of time to put into cooking/baking, but it has to be tasty to please these guys. This one definitely passed the test. I will be making more of these to put in my good boxes for my siblings for Christmas. Thanks for posting.
