Peanut Clusters

So, Christmas is the time of baking like a crazy person.  I’ve been at my parents’ for 3 days, and I’ve made 12 dozen cookies already… and only 3 types!

One of my favorites really isn’t a cookie, but a candy.  They are called Peanut Clusters.

Here’s how you make them:

Melt a couple of chocolate bars until it is all melty liquidy goodness.  Stir in a couple cups of peanuts.  Place the mixture on a cookie sheet covered in parchment or wax paper.  Kind of think of them as cookies as you place them.  They won’t spread like a cookie though.  Next, put them in the refrigerator until they are hard.  Take them off the sheet and store them in a resealable bag or container.  Make sure you store them in the refrigerator, or else they will melt and, besides, they taste better cold!

Enjoy them.  I know I will.
