Who’s ready to make some quick and easy peanut clusters?!
Now. I DID put a little twist on this classic recipe by making them in a mini muffin tin! You don’t HAVE to, but I found that it’s SO much easier to use a muffin tin to shape them, instead of just plopping them onto a baking sheet.
Instead of turning into random blobs, they’re cute little bites!
- Spray two (24 slot) mini muffin tins with cooking spray OR line them with mini muffin liners OR you can go the traditional route and just line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
- Melt vanilla almond bark and semi-sweet chocolate chips together in a large mixing bowl.
- Stir in lightly salted, roasted peanuts.
- Use a medium cookie scoop to evenly scoop the mixture into the prepared muffin tin OR into little mounds on the baking sheet.
- Top with sea salt and an extra drizzle of vanilla almond bark if you’re feeling fancy.
- Place in freezer until set.
- Keep in fridge or at room temperature.
See?! These peanut clusters are SO ridiculously quick and easy.
Make a batch for yourself and a few to give away . . . everyone LOVES these.
They’re sweet, they’re salty, they’re crunchy, they’re chocolate-y.
What’s not to love?!
