In the spirit of all things easy and simple this Christmas season, I thought I would share with you this Peanut Cluster recipe.
Now as a friend and forewarn-er of all things serious, consuming this product will be a detriment to any kind of weight loss. And I’m a bit of an addict when it comes to chocolate and peanut combos… this fits the bill for both.
My friend, Donna, whipped these up for a recent Christmas tea and they were scrumptious. I imagined a lot of stirring and standing over a melting pot of chocolate to accomplish this feat of perfection but that’s not true. This recipe is amazingly simple.
Here’s the recipe because it’s way too easy to keep secret!
Peanut Cluster Recipe
Dump the following ingredients in crock-pot (slow cooker) in order(Peanuts, morsels).
Do Not Stir
- 1/2 lb of salted peanuts
- 1/2 lb of unsalted peanuts
- 1/4 lb of roasted cashews (opt)
- 1 bag (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- 1 bag (12 oz) milk chocolate morsels
- 2 bags (7 oz) peanut butter morsels
- 1 bag white chocolate morsels
Do Not Stir. Put on lid and set the slow cooker on low for 2 hours. After 2 hours, stir and cook for another 1/2 hour. (Note: if you have an older slow cooker where the lid does NOT seal, this timing is perfect. If you are using a newer slow cooker where the lid seals shut with clamps, it cooks faster and hotter so keep the temp on low but change the cooking time to 1 hour 20 min, then stir and cook for another 20 minutes or until all the chips are melted and smooth. )
Stir again. Then spoon out by the teaspoon onto wax paper (parchment paper) and let sit for at least 2 hours. Enjoy!
