Chocolate Nut Clusters

Makes: 4 dozen

1 pkg. (12 oz.) milk chocolate chips
1 pkg. (12 oz.) butterscotch chips
1 jar (16-20 oz.) dry-roasted peanuts
Aluminum foil

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine both bags of chips. Microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes; stir well. Microwave on high for an additional two minute. Stir until mixture is smooth; microwave for an additional 20 seconds if needed. Pour peanuts into chocolate mixture and stir until peanuts are well coated. Spread 2-3 feet of foil on table or kitchen counter. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto foil and allow to harden for several hours.

Tips: This is such an easy candy/sweet treat recipe that can be made for any occasion. I always include these nut clusters in my plates of Christmas goodies. If you are making these in the summer or if your house is extremely warm it may take longer for the clusters to set. If you are in a hurry, you can drop them onto a foil covered cookie sheet and put them in the refrigerator. I often turn them over after a few hours to make sure the bottoms harden as well. I couldn't remember the exact size of the jar of peanuts so I gave it my best guess. I'll check for sure the next time I'm at the store. I also shared this recipe at Life as MOM's Recipe Swap & We Are THAT Family's Works-For-Me Wednesday.

Recipe from my mom, Kay.
