Favorite Christmas Candy
My Favorite Christmas Candy Recipe is so simple and soooooooooooooooooooo good!
Chocolate Peanut Clusters - 3 ingredients - made in microwave
Jimmie Archie Harris
24 oz. chocolate candy bark
1 cup chocolate chips
24 oz. Planter's Cocktail Peanuts
Roll of two long strips of wax paper to drop this candy on.
In large microwave bowl add all of the bark and the cup of chocolate strips. Zap on high 1 min. Stir to see if completely melted. If not melted zap at 15 second intervals until stirring shows it is completely melted. Empty 24 oz (3 cups) peanuts into chocolate mixture. Mix thoroughly and drop by either tablespoon for larger patties or by teaspoon for smaller patties. You can make some of each if you wish. It makes about 36 of the larger size patties.
They fit perfectly in one of the Glad Family Size square containers that I get at Wal-Mart or the grocery store and they come three to a package for about $4.00 and can be used to mail foods. Recently, I mailed a fruitcake soaked in bourbon. I have mailed many with tube or bundt cakes as they fit so perfectly. Be sure to measure wax paper the size of the bottom of the plastic container and then put between layers of the chocolate peanut patties. These make great gifts or items to take to a party. They taste like the most expensive chocolates from any good store. I like them because you do not have to test ingredients with a thermometer nor do you have to work fast putting them out.
