Peanut Clusters

I have to admit this recipe happened by accident but my cousin Leigh said that I had to post it so here it is.


2 Cans of Roasted and Salted Peanuts ( Each Can should be about 6 OZ and I found mine at the Dollar Store.
1 Pound melting Chocolate ( check label for gluten free or Vegan)
3 Cups Sugar
3 Cups Water
1/4 Any Color Sprinkles

Crush Nuts in food processor. Place sugar and water in a pot and bring to a high simmer. You have to watch this not to boil over or burn. Simmer till it reduces by half and starts to brown. Please don’t leave the stove while this is happening, it can take about 30 minutes. The liquid will be VERY HOT! Once liquid is thick and light brown pour in crushed peanuts. Stir fast trying mix it all together. Spread on a well oiled baking pan and break it up a bit. Once its cooled, break up into chunks by hand and place in large bowl.
Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave. Pour melt chocolate in bowl with nut clusters and toss well. Spread back onto baking pan and cover with sprinkles. Let the tray cool in fridge for at least an hour and then enjoy :).
