Holiday Peanut Clusters

Jill Cooks


I snagged this from Peter Pan himself when I needed something in a hurry to fill cookie tins with. They are irresistible and the best part is you do not have to bake them.

I have to confess that I use Jiff peanut butter. The others just don't cut it for me. ;)

pinch tips: Parchment Paper Vs Wax Paper






12.6 oz. package red and green m&m's
11 oz. package butterscotch chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 (12 oz. cans) cocktail peanuts

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine M&M's, chips, and peanut butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving and stirring, in 30-second intervals, until chips and peanut butter are melted.
Stir in peanuts; drop mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls on baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
