  • Clusters:

  • cups salted peanuts

  • 1

    cup of homemade caramel sauce (recipe follows)

  • 2

    cups of chopped chocolate, melted

  • Homemade Caramel Sauce:

  • 1

    cup granulated sugar

  • 4

    tablespoons water

  • 4

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 10

    tablespoons of heavy cream

  • ½

    teaspoons of kosher salt


Instructions: Clusters: Mix peanuts with caramel sauce. Scoop out one measured tablespoon onto the parchment. Freeze salted peanut caramel clusters for 30 minutes. Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl and set over (not on) simmering water and heat until melted. Remove salted peanut caramel clusters from freezer and dip in melted chocolate and then place on parchment paper to rest until chocolate has harden. Homemade Caramel Sauce: Add sugar and water into a saucepan over medium low heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Use a wet brush to remove any crystals that form on the side. Once sugar has dissolved increase heat to high. Now and then, using the handle give the pot a swirl to keep the mixture moving. Do not stir the mixture directly. The mixture will start to bubble after a minute. As the mixture darkens to a medium amber color, approximately 5-7 minutes, add the butter and cream to saucepan. The mixture will bubble wildly. Whisk to combine (bubbles will subside upon cooling). Add salt and stir to combine.
