When I think about what I like in a candy, it usually involves chocolate and nuts, chewy and crunchy, sweet and salty. I also really love toffee. Lucky for me there is really not much I don’t like. And even luckier for me, these little clusters of goodness have it all! Recently I shared with you about my cousin Charlotte. Thankfully she shared this recipe with me! It really couldn’t get much easier either. It makes a lot of these chocolatey and nutty packages, so it’s great for giving as gifts or sharing at the office. And not to worry, if there are still leftovers… they freeze well too. Enjoy!
2 small jars (16 oz each) dry roasted peanuts (1 salted, 1 unsalted)
3 lbs or blocks of white almond bark, vanilla Candiquick or vanilla candy coating, chopped into small pieces
1/2 lb Bakers semi-sweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
1 bag Heath chips
1 bag Milk chocolate chips
1 bag Semi sweet chocolate chips
*Also a full size crockpot, a sturdy spoon and a strong arm 😉
Put everything in the crockpot on low. Stir often. When all is melted and no more dashes of white or dark spots of chocolate can be seen (about an hour), spoon in globs on wax or parchment paper until it hardens (a couple more hours).
It makes a vat full, so be prepared to share or freeze the clusters and bring them out in batches. They will last a few months in the freezer.
