Peanut Clusters

A Christmas classic at our house. This is my mom’s recipe.

1 package almond bark
1 12-oz bag of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate (a square, chopped, or a pre-melted pkg.)
24 oz. (or larger!) container of dry roasted peanuts

Coarsely chop the almond bark into chunks and melt in a microwave or crockery pot with the chocolate chips and the unsweetened chocolate, stirring until smooth. Stir in the peanuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax-paper lined cookie sheets, allowing space for the clusters to spread. Cool completely. Devour.

Kitchen Hint: For a variation, use mixed nuts. This is one recipe you don’t want to make “healthier” by using unsalted nuts. The salt cuts the sweetness and makes them irresistible.
