Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Nut Clusters

If you’re looking for a last minute gift idea for teachers, neighbors, service men/women (your housekeeper, mailman, UPS driver, garbage man, etc.) or are looking for a quick hostess gift or even stocking stuffer – this recipe is for you! These nut clusters serve as complete nostalgia for me. I remember my mom spending an entire day making batch after batch of these nut clusters and opening our refrigerator to see them cooling (and always stealing a few) before the holidays. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Nut Clusters
(makes about 3 dozen)

What You’ll Need: 

cupcake liners
cookie sheet
1lb bag of dry roasted, unsalted peanuts
2 1b bags semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter

In a double boiler (examples here) melt 2 bags of semi sweet chocolate chips, stirring constantly to avoid burning. Add in peanut butter, melt and stir to combine. Add in peanuts and combine. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with cupcakes liners and fill each liner with one spoonful of chocolate/peanut mixture. Allow at least 30 minutes to set in the refrigerator but the longer they set the better! Remove and enjoy!

*We store ours in the refrigerator because we like to enjoy them cold (and avoid any melting). 

Yum! If you’re looking for some last minute recipe ideas you can check out 10 cookie recipes to make for the holidays!
