As we welcome the season of gift giving and neighborly greetings, a good friend shared this recipe with me last year. You may have seen this before, but if you haven’t tried it, please do! I found it to be the easiest way to make these delicious treats. No mess, no worry about scorching ingredients, and with the exception of the time it “cooks” in your crock pot, you’ll spend 20 minutes of your time to produce about 8 dozen clusters. Great return on your time investment!
- 2 lb. dry roasted, salted peanuts
- (1) 12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- 2.5 lb. white almond bark
- 4 oz. package of German’s Sweet Baking Chocolate
Spray inside of crock pot with cooking spray, then layer (in order) peanuts, chocolate chips, dark chocolate, and almond bark. Do not stir, and cook on low for 3 hours.
Then stir, and drop tablespoon-sized drops (smaller if you prefer) on waxed paper. Allow to cool completely before serving. These freeze well.
These make a great gift! I fill cellophane bags (available at the craft store) and tie with a festive ribbon.
