Reviews for Toffee Peanut Clusters
"I made this recipe today for an upcoming event and have to admit that these candies are delicious. I would make some changes next time, though. I would add some shortening to the chocolate candy before melting and I would start out by adding only half of the peanuts and toffee bits. These turned out good but were on the dry side. They are delicious and I will be making these again.I recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
"My teenager makes these for her teachers at Christmas and calls them "reindeer poop". It's a great go- to recipe when you need to make a lot of treats. Super quick, super easy and inexpensive."
"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, JoyDulaney 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!"
