Mr. Goodbar Clusters

2 cups salted cocktail peanuts

1 12-ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 12-ounce bag milk chocolate chips

2 tablespoons peanut butter

Using a large knife, chop peanuts (you’re roughly looking to bust a whole peanut into quarters). Don’t use a nut grinder for this or the texture will be too fine. Set nuts aside.

Melt semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips in the microwave or using a double-boiler until completely melted and smooth. Add peanut butter and stir until completely incorporated.

Add chopped peanuts and stir well. Drop by the tablespoonful onto wax or parchment paper. Let clusters set until firm (about 8-10 hours). You can speed this up by putting them in the refrigerator but they will sweat a little when you take them out which will mar up the smooth chocolate finish.

*you don’t have to mix the milk chocolate and semi-sweet (you can use one or the other) but I really think the combination nails the Mr. Goodbar taste! If you decide to use all milk chocolate, omit the peanut butter – the milk chocolate is soft enough without it.
