Chocolate Peanut Clusters

I need a sweet treat to start the new year. These little one bite nibbles are just the thing. Those TV commercials where they take a wee bite of a piece of candy make me gag. I can put 2 or 3 in my mouth at once.


  • Place both chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at High 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred.
  • Stir in peanuts.
  • Drop by teaspoons into 1-inch diameter candy or petit four papers. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Store tightly covered in refrigerator.

Feel free to replace the peanuts with malt balls or anything else. We put in some craisins as well.

and remember: Never be bullied into silence.  Never allow yourself to be made a victim.  Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.
