Reviews for Toffee Peanut Clusters
Sort By :
I prepared these candies 9/7/14. I DID use 1 package (14-oz.) dark chocolate Make and Mold candy wafers, 1 lb. of dry roasted peanuts, 1 Tbsp. vegetable shortening and 8-oz. Heath "Bits of Brickle" Toffee Bits.
I used my double boiler and melted the candy wafers with 1Tbsp. shortening over hot boiling water and stirred until smooth. Then I stirred in the peanuts and toffee bits and dropped onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets and chilled in my refrigerator until set. I didn't get 5 dozen-I'd say that I got about 3 to 3-1/2 dozen clusters! divvied the candies up between 3 airtight containers and stored them in my refrigerator to keep cool!
This recipe is really simple to prepare and I'm glad I tried it! I'll be keeping this recipe in mind when I want to prepare quick candies! Thank you, Joy
Dulaney for sharing your recipe! This IS a 5* recipe!
I don't know why I never thought of adding toffee bits to peanut clusters before! The sweet and salty combination between toffee and dry roasted peanuts is fabulous. One batch I did need to use almonds as a replacement, still very good but the saltiness of the dry roasted peanuts cuts through the sweetness of the chocolate and toffee. I have also dropped by spoonfuls into mini cupcake liners for use on a dessert table. Looked great! This is a great 'clusters' recipe to try.
Love the addition of the toffee bits, and s easy!
I substituted 2 bags of Guirradelli milk chocolate plus two tsp shortening for the candy coating, melting it carefully @ 50%. I used only half each of the toffee and peanuts and it was perfect! Using full amounts would've been too chunky.
I have been making this for the last several years it is one of the quickest and best little candies. I have had nothing but rave revues and many ask for a repeat every year.
