MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2014

"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!"

MY REVIEW

"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."

MY REVIEW

"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."
