A week of {no bake} Christmas party treats - Day 2 - Peanut Clusters

Welcome to Day 2 of a week of {no bake} Christmas party treats! Today's treat is just as chocolately, but even simpler to make than yesterday's cookie. It's time to make some amazing PEANUT CLUSTERS!!! This recipe is super yummy... creamy chocolate and crunchy peanuts = delicious!

For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:


  • 1 - 12 oz bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 package chocolate almond bark [wow, that's a lot of chocolate!]
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 lbs dry roasted peanuts [salted or unsalted both work great]

Day 2-1

First, put the almond bark, the chocolate chips and the peanut butter into a large microwave safe bowl.


Day 2-2

Melt the chocolate/peanut butter mixture in the microwave, stirring the mixture every minute or so until completely melted. [this step can also be done over the stove if preferred]

Day 2-3

Add the peanuts and stir until completely mixed.

Day 2-4

Drop onto cookie sheets covered in wax paper by heaping teaspoons (or tablespoons if you'd like!)

Day 2-5

That's it! You're done! Now just let them cool to harden - you can stick these in the fridge or freezer to harden them faster. They can also be frozen and saved for later. Yum!


This recipe make approximately 2 million peanut clusters... give or take a few.
