how to make peanut clusters

First, melt a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments, until smooth.

Tip: to make these dairy free, simply grab a bag of dairy free chocolate chips instead!

Once the chocolate is smooth, stir in the peanuts. 

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.

Drop the chocolate peanuts by spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet, then sprinkle tops with flaked sea salt.

This step is optional, but I love the extra hit of salty sweet that flaked sea salt gives!

Place the cookie sheet in the fridge or freezer until the chocolate hardens.

Now enjoy your easy homemade peanut clusters!

Can I freeze chocolate covered peanuts?

Yes! These are delicious straight from the freezer too. 

Just allow to set, then place peanut clusters in an airtight freezer ziploc bag.
