So, what’s a girl a girl to do without her favorite movie snack? Well, that’s where these jewels come in! Let me know what your favorite movie theatre candy/snack is in the comments!

This is probably going to be the easiest recipe (other than our Root Beer Float) you will ever lay eyes on:

  1. Melt dark chocolate
  2. Throw peanuts in with chocolate
  3. Mix so that chocolate covers peanuts
  4. Put clusters in a muffin cup
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt and place in freezer to set for 5 minutes
  6. Enjoy and store in fridge

Boom. You just made yourself some super easy, sweet, crunchy, and salty peanut clusters!

I found it easiest to put the clusters into a mini muffin pan. That way ย you can control the size of the clusters and avoid making much of a mess. Just my personal preference. ๐Ÿ™‚ Another option is just to get a baking sheet, line with parchment paper, and drop them on.

Peanuts are my favorite tree nut, but maybe they’re not yours. If not, substitute peanuts with your favorite! ๐Ÿ™‚ Roasted almonds, cashews, and even hazel nuts are all great substitutes.
