TIPS FOR BAKING THE PERFECT CHOCOLATE PEANUT CLUSTERS
- If desired, use any type of chocolate chips: white, bitter, semi-sweet. Thus, you can experiment not only with the appearance but also the taste of your candies.
- I recommend using blanched and roasted peanuts instead of raw ones. This will extend the shelf life of your chocolate clusters.
- As a festive decoration, you can lay red and green m & m’s on top of still uncured candies.
- If you don’t have a crockpot or multicooker, melt the chocolate in a water bath using a large and medium saucepan. The key to success: The bottom of the smaller saucepan should not touch the boiling water in the large saucepan. Otherwise, the chocolate will burn to the bottom.
