Ever since I made my One Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie, I have been loving simple recipes. Sometimes life doesn’t leave you with time to bake an elaborate layer cake but it doesn’t mean you can’t make something. That’s why I love no bake recipes.
So what makes these Peanut Clusters so good?! Well my recipe has a little peanut butter twist – for added flavour.
All you have to do is melt a little dark chocolate with a few tablespoons of smooth peanut butter, stir through some roasted peanuts and voila, perfect Peanut Clusters.
When I make these Peanut Clusters, I love to sprinkle over a little sea salt for that sweet and salty action. Or you could even use roasted salted peanuts.
You could also make these with any other nuts if you prefer. Roasted almonds would be lovely or cashews! I think any roasted nut goes beautifully with chocolate, especially rich dark chocolate. But you could also use milk chocolate if you prefer.
Just be warned that these are very very hard to resist. In fact, I might just go sneak another one. So what are you waiting for?!
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT CLUSTERS
- Start with good quality ingredients. Some nice unsalted peanuts, good quality dark (or milk) chocolate and some smooth peanut butter.
- I recommend using store bought peanut butter – the processed kind like Bega, Jif or Skippy.
- All you need to do and is melt the chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave, stirring until smooth, before adding the peanuts. Stir until all the peanuts are covered.
- Line a baking tray or serving platter with baking or parchment paper. Spoon out teaspoons of the chocolate mix, sprinkle over a little sea salt, and pop in the fridge to set.
