How to make maple peanut clusters
Although making maple peanut clusters is fairly easy, and our recipe is beginner friendly, there are still some key parts for achieving the best taste possible:
Choosing the right maple syrup
You need to make sure that what you are buying is a true maple syrup, not high-fructose glucose syrups or flavor enhancers.
Choosing the right nut
Various recipes differ on the type of nut they use, including cashews, almonds, walnuts, and hazelnuts. In our exclusive recipe, we have decided to go with peanuts.
1 cup roasted peanuts.
½ cup maple syrup.
1 tbsp. butter.
1 tsp. vanilla extract.
¼ tsp. salt.
1 cup chocolate chips.
1 tbsp. shortening.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine roasted peanuts, maple syrup, butter, vanilla extract, and salt, until they are evenly mixed.
Drop mixture by tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and shortening.
Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until chocolate is melted and smooth.
Dip each one in the melted chocolate, then place back on the baking sheet to let the chocolate harden.
