Peanut Clusters

We have here a fudge like peanut cluster. This is not only one of Gramma Bea's favorite treats it is one Jan asked for often when she was sick.

At one point I got a new set of kettles and tried to make these in my new pans. Didn't work because my new stainless steel pans cooled off differently than my old aluminum one. So I dug the old one out of the goodwill box and kept it just for making these candies.
