Peanut Butter Clusters
This is the easiest, throw together no bake, cookie/candy and it is absolutely decadent and delicious. If you like peanut butter this is for YOU!
1 package of peanut butter chips
1 cup of potato sticks
1 cup of roasted peanuts
1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted for drizzling
Put peanut butter chips in a medium size glass bowl and melt in the microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until melted and smooth. Add potato sticks and peanuts and stir to coat completely. Drop peanut butter mixture by spoonful onto a cookie sheet lined with parchments paper or another non-stick surface (I used a silpat liner). Place in the freezer to harden. Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in a small bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments stirring inbetween until chcolate is completely melted and smooth. Place melted chocolate in a small piping bag (a zip lock plastic bag would work too). Snip off a tiny piece at the end of the pastry bag and pipe zig zag lines of chocolate on each peanut butter cluster. If necessary place clusters back in the freezer for chcolate to harden.
