White and Milk Chocolate Peanut Clusters

Kyle's mother taught me this recipe, which is so easy and delicious that I don't know why people don't make these more often!

Yield: 20 - 30 peanut clusters, depending on how large you make them

1 jar (16 oz) roasted, salted peanuts
Almond bark (chocolate or vanilla, or both!)
Wax paper

This is so easy, you could figure it out with me writing a word!
Spread out a sheet of wax paper.  Melt the almond bark in the microwave for about 30-60 seconds (about 3-4 blocks at a time, otherwise it will get hard before you finish making these).  Make sure to mix the chocolate about halfway through, and avoid overheating, as it will burn and become unusable.  If you melt it about halfway and then remove it, the heat of the melted parts will carry over and melt the rest.

Next, place small mounds of peanuts on the wax paper.  Spoon the chocolate over each mound, being sure to cover all the peanuts.  That's it!  Allow to dry about ten minutes, and then if necessary, add extra chocolate to cover up any imperfections.

Tips:  If you don't tell anyone how easy this was, they will never know!  I served these on silver platters and they looked elegant and expensive... I didn't let on that they only took about ten minutes to make!  Sweet and salty....  Enjoy!
