Chocolate Peanut Clusters

This is another of the candies that my Grandma always made in her Christmas candy spread each year. This isn't her exact recipe, it's actually one that I just made up on the fly this year, but I'm very happy with how they came out! This is a very simple candy that even the most novice of candy makers can make to share with family and friends during the holiday season! Just be sure to make extra, because they will disappear fast!


...1 pound of chocolate (again, I used Hershey's Kisses because it's what I had on hand. You can use chocolate chips or baking chocolate as well!)
...2 T. shortening


Melt chocolate in the microwave and then stir in shortening until smooth. Add in peanuts until the mixture is the consisstency you like. You can really make these however you want, more chocolate, more peanuts or an equal amount of each. Just keep adding peanuts until it is how you want it. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper to harden.
