This month has been all about lemon because we've had so many amazing lemons from Thea. But, all that sweet and tart has me craving chocolate. And, because Delaney's mom and brother are still here helping with our house, I am always trying to make something to please them. Both of them loved my simple Toasted Coconut Dark Chocolate Bars because they love dark chocolate and also subtly sweet things. So, I thought I'd make something that they would like and also be able to snack on all day while working or even enjoy in the evening with a glass of wine.
These Dark Chocolate Peanut Clusters have literally two ingredients: dark chocolate and roasted & salted peanuts. They are so easy and fast to make, which allows you to have dessert in only fifteen minutes! Get the recipe for this quick and simple dessert below.
Dark Chocolate Peanut Clusters
142 grams (5 ounces) organic dark chocolate, chopped
212 grams (1 1/2 cups) organic roasted & salted peanuts
In a double boiler, melt about 80% of the dark chocolate until it reaches 115°F on a chocolate thermometer. Remove from heat and add in remaining 20% of dark chocolate. Stir vigorously until it's combined. Allow to sit until it reaches 91°F.
Add the peanuts and stir to coat completely.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a spoon, scoop spoonfuls and place them on the parchment paper. Place the baking sheet in the fridge to set.
