Chocolate peanut clusters are one of my many addictions when it comes to chocolate. They are delicious snacks or gifts.

Remember you can make most of my recipes lactose free, which I always do, you'll just have to get the right ingredients.

Ingredients

What you'll need

  • 200 grams of Peanuts
  • 200 grams of Chocolate (dark, white or milk)

Tools

What you'll need

  • 2 (Small) Spoons
  • Heat Proof Bowl
  • Silicone Spatula
  • Cutting Board

*Only necessary if you choose to melt the chocolate au bain-marie. Make sure your bowl fits on top of the boiling pot without touching the water in the pot, otherwise your chocolate could easily burn.

Method

  1. Cover your cutting board in baking paper.
  2. Break your chocolate into small pieces, place it into the heat proof bowl.
  3. Melt your chocolate in the microwave or au bain-marie*.
  4. Add the peanuts and stir them through well.
  5. Use two small spoons to form the chocolate peanut clusters on your cutting board. 
  6. Place in the refrigerator to set.
  7. Remove them from the cutting board and place them into a serving dish, a sandwich bag or bowl. NOTE: A nice way to present them is in a piping bag, tie a ribbon around the end to close off the bag.
