Chocolate Peanut Clusters

Pin It
I look for easy stuff to make for the kids.
So this fit the bill exactly.
I can't wait to use pretzels in the mix.
Or even the Chinese noodle thingies...YUM!

Either way, the kids and I had fun making this.
Super easy and a fantastic activity for the triplets.


2 cups (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups (12 oz) vanilla bark
2 cups Cheerios or cheaper store brand
1 cup dry roasted peanuts (no salt)
Wax paper
Cookie sheet

2-3 oz vanilla bark
1 tsp vegetable oil

It already sounds delish, doesn't it?
Don't lie.
I know you are trying to talk yourself out of making it.
I promise, you.will.not.regret.this.

1) Take your 12 oz of bark & 12 oz of chips and mix together.

2) Place in the microwave on high, stopping every minute to mix.
You will do this for 4-5 minutes. DON'T overcook! It will burn.

3) While your sweet goodies are melting, you will take your
3 cups of Cheerios (or substitute) & 1 cup peanuts, mix together.

{um, they love to taste it as well}

4) Once the bark & chips are melted, you will pour in
your Cheerios and peanuts, then you will mix it all together.

Ah, looks delish already!
Try keeping the kids out it, ha!

5) Place wax paper on the cookie sheet and scoop
out the mixture on to the wax paper.
6) Take about 2-3 oz of bark and put it in the microwave to melt,
approximately 30 seconds. Then mix in the vegetable oil, and
heat another 30 seconds. Mix together and then pour on clusters.
7) Place those yummy clusters in the fridge to cool, about 30-45 minutes.

After the cooling, your clusters are ready to eat!

Yummy, huh?
And if you like the serving plate, that would be
2 99 cent finds at the dollar store, spray painted
and then glued together for a pretty presentation.

All I can say is everyone I know is getting clusters
for Christmas this year.
I mean, I don't think anyone is going to complain.

Have you taken a bite yet?
Enjoy and share your experience!
