Chocolate Covered Peanuts...

Friday, January 13, 2012

This week's
Something Yummy for My Colonel's Tummy
is really a favorite of our whole family.

Chocolate Covered Peanuts

Nothing is more delicious than melted chocolate and peanuts...



After some "chilling" time, you have a delicious snack...


I could not believe how incredibly easy this recipe was 
when Olivia and I made them for Christmas.

So EASY and so DELICIOUS.
It doesn't get any better than that, does it?

You need TWO ingredients.
Almond Bark and Peanuts...

  
Line a mini muffin pan with mini muffin liners...


Melt the almond bark in a big bowl, in the microwave.
Once the almond bark is melted, add your peanuts...


Stir until everything is completely mixed.
Then start filling up your mini muffin cups...


I sprayed each liner before because I wasn't sure if the chocolate would stick.

If you DO NOT have mini muffin pans,
just spoon the chocolate peanut mixture right onto 
a baking tray lined with wax paper.  

Place the pans/trays in the refrigerator or freezer until 
the chocolate has hardened...



Now, you're going to ask me...
How much almond bark and how many peanuts?

This all depends on how many chocolate candies you WANT!
We used the one whole almond bark bar and about 2 cups of peanuts.

We really enjoyed this treat and I will definitely be making
MORE for Valentine's Day in a few weeks.  


Enjoy your day!

It is so nice to have a warm frie when the wind is blowing and it is COLD outside!!!

  4. How do you and your Hubby stay so slim when you make all this good stuff.

    I am going on an alkaline diet starting Monday... YUCK!! But when I am completely healthy, I will thank my Doctor.

  8. Oh, Lois, you are dangerous.. lol. I am going to make some peanut clusters over the weekend though. Just have to use up that excess holiday baking supply up, ya know! :) I like your idea best, of putting them in mini-muffin papers. Yay! They're much cuter that way ;) Have a fabulous weekend!! -Tammy

  10. I started laughing because at the very moment I clicked on your blog and read the title, I was popping a chocolate covered almond in my mouth. I guess it goes without saying that I would love your candy. Thanks for sharing the recipe. It will make the perfect little Valentine's Day treat and I even have little muffin papers with hearts on them.
    We're having a shrimp stir fry tonight. Great way to use up the little bits of veggies left in the fridge.

  14. Oh my, this looks so easy, and delicious. What a great idea to do for Valentine's day. This may be something simple and delicious to do for the teacher's on Valentine's, and for hubby's office staff. I think I have both chocolate and vanilla almond bark left over from Christmas. Oh I just love it over here!
