Clusters Ingredients

Chocolate: I used semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe. But, you could also use a semi-sweet chocolate baking bar, broken up into pieces.

Peanuts: Roasted, salted peanuts were my choice when it came to making these candies. They are easy to find at your local grocery store.

    1. Hello Amanda!

      Thanks for this super simple recipe!

      I used a mini cookie dough scoop to fill 2 mini muffin pans. The candies are setting up as I write.

      Can’t WAIT for breakfast…

  1. Thank you. I plan to make these today. You directions are clear and I like the printed version. I also like the 2 ingredients. So many other recipes use that candy coating.

  2. I love this recipe. Very easy to make! I accidentally bought unsalted nuts and sprinkled kosher salt on top before sticking them in the fridge to firm up. So delicious!

  3. I accidentally picked a bag of Nestle expresso chips. Turned an accidental purchase into an adult peanut cluster! Delish!

  4. I took your advice and used mini marshmallows. Delicious Rocky road clusters. ❣️❣️❣️👏🏻
