Peanut Clusters: The Perfect Combination of Sweet and Salty!

If you’re a fan of sweet and salty snacks, then you’ll love National Peanut Cluster Day on March 8th! But what is a peanut cluster? It’s only the most delicious combination of creamy chocolate and crunchy peanuts that will make your taste buds sing. Let’s take a closer look at this tasty treat.

What Is a Peanut Cluster?

A peanut cluster is an irresistible snack made from melted chocolate and roasted peanuts. They are usually sold in candy stores or online as clusters of about two inches wide or as large bars. The flavor combinations can vary widely depending on the type of chocolate used (milk, dark, or white) and the addition of other ingredients like toffee bits or raisins. No matter how they are made or what flavors they contain, peanut clusters are always a crowd-pleaser!

How Are Peanut Clusters Made?

It might surprise you to learn that making peanut clusters is easier than it looks. To start off, roasted peanuts are mixed with either light corn syrup or honey for sweetness. Then the mixture is spread in a shallow pan and drenched in melted chocolate. After the mixture has cooled down enough to touch without burning yourself (about 10 minutes), it can be broken into pieces and served up! For extra flair, you can top off your clusters with colorful sprinkles or drizzle them with melted white chocolate.

Celebrate National Peanut Cluster Day by making your own batches of these delicious treats!
