Salted Chocolate Peanut Clusters
These little clusters remind me of my grandmother. I think she bought hers at a local store, but they always seemed homemade. That is what I love about some of my childhood food memo ries. Just because something was store bought and/or semi-homemade doesn’t mean it was any less special. The way you display or package it up, present it, and eat it, can be just as special as making it. This, however, is a very easy microwave candy, one made from scratch and with a lot of love.
