Easy chocolate peanut clusters 3 ingredient recipe that is super fun for families to make during the Holidays. Just takes vanilla almond bark, chocolate chips, and lightly roasted peanuts to create this delicious treat.
I usually go for almond bark, but I was craving chocolate peanut clusters the other day, and just had to make them as soon as possible.
You guys, this recipe is so easy, its ridiculous.
It requires 3 ingredients to make this delectable nestle chocolate peanut clusters recipe:
- 1 (1 lb) block vanilla almond bark
- 1 (12 oz) bag semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 (16 oz) jar lightly salted roasted peanuts
See, easy peasy ingredients.
For the vanilla almond bark, I used a block of candiquik, an ingredient I learned about recently when making my Tiger Butter Bark. It makes whipping up candy super quick, and its so yummy. Below is a photo of Candiquik if you're new to it too.
Tips for this peanut clusters recipe with almond bark:
- Once you pour the peanuts into the melted chocolate, stir, and immediately scoop the candies onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet. If you let the melted chocolate and peanuts sit too long, the mixture will harden in the bowl, and you will not be able to scoop out any more beautiful peanut clusters. You have been warned. 😉
- Switch the nuts up in this chocolate clusters recipe, and create almond clusters or macadamia clusters. Yum and Yum.
These microwave peanut clusters are fabulous and you can whip them up in a few minutes. Place them in a gift bag with a bow, and you have a wonderful hostess gift for holiday parties.
