Chocolate Peanut Butter Peanut Clusters

This simple recipe for these chocolate peanut butter peanut clusters was given to us by a good friend years ago.

We normally make these every Holiday season. This year we just ran out of time and never got around to making these.

That means that I had all of the ingredients in the house and ready to go. The AFC playoff game this Sunday was so one-sided, I decided to gather everything together and check these off my list for some sweet treats.

These little treats are just so easy to make. And, what a great idea to make them and keep some in the freezer for that chocolate and peanut craving.

Chocolate Clusters

Here are the simple ingredients I used. Reese's Peanut Butter Chips, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, and Salted Peanuts.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Clusters

After melting Reese's Peanut Butter Chips and the Chocolate Chips together.  I stirred in the peanuts and dropped them onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Peanut Clusters

Ingredients:

1- 10oz. bag Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups salted peanuts

Directions:

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl or double boiler melt the peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. (I used my double boiler on the stove top)
  2. Stir chocolate continuously until all is melted and smooth.
  3. Add the peanuts, stir and mix well.
  4. Drop onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper using a tablespoon.
  5. Let them set up for a few minutes and place them in the freezer for about 10 minutes. 
 I yielded 24 of these little treats but, I used heaping tablespoons. I probably could have had 30 or more if I would have used just a little less.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

  4. One of my very favorite chocolate candy treats! Actually, anything with chocolate & nuts are favorites. But I do especially love peanut clusters. And these look so easy to make. I finished off my Christmas fudge and was wishing for a candy treat to have on hand for those 'craving sweets' moments. I will definitely be trying this recipe soon! Saved it to my Recipes I Gotta Try Pinterest board so I won't forget where the recipe is! Thanks, Sam.

    1. Yes, these are just perfect to make and keep some in the freezer for that chocolate fix. My only problem is that they don't stay in the freezer very long. Thanks Pat I do hope you enjoy them.

  5. If you are diabetic or even if you want to prevent diabetes in yourself or in your family, you should just say no to peanut butters with partially hydrogenated oils. groundnut oil malaysia
