It has been much too long since I posted my last Vintage Handwritten Recipe, and I aim to change that.
Since summer still has a bit of oomph left in it (temps in the high 80's coming this week), something quick, easy and NOT hot will fill the bill.
Hence...Chocolate Peanut Butter Clusters!
Oh boy - these are yummy. Be prepared.
So here's the recipe as written...
Double Peanut Clusters
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup salted peanuts
Melt peanut butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler. Stir until completely melted and blended. Mix in nuts until completely coated. Drop onto cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Chill.
BLONDIE NOTES: I used dark chocolate chips. If you are a fan of dark chocolate, you'll like that extra richness! I also used lightly salted peanuts. When you spoon this out onto the cookie sheet, be prepared for it to spread a bit, so leave room in between each cluster. After they have completely chilled, you can break them into smaller pieces, as I did, before serving - like a brittle.
These were a big hit and disappeared very fast, so you might want to make a double batch.
