Peanut clusters are a delicious treat for any occasion, and they’re so easy to make. I made this recipe for a family treat exchange and it was a hit!

If you’ve been keeping up with This is Us you might be a little wary of your slow cooker. (How could it betray the Pearsons like that 😢). However, just remember your slow cooker is innocent and this recipe is so worth it. Jack would want you to make these.

Ingredients for slow cooker peanut clusters

Ingredients & Supplies:

  • 32 oz lightly salted peanuts
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 oz milk chocolate chips
  • 20 oz peanut butter chips

  • 1 large slow cooker

*I made about 100 peanut clusters with this recipe. You can make more or less depending on how much you put in each liner.

Instructions:

  1. Starting with the peanuts, layer all the ingredients in a large slow cooker. Add the white chocolate chips as your last layer. Peanut cluster ingredients in slow cooker
  2. Turn your slow cooker on low, cover with lid and leave sitting for 1 hour. (This is a good time to start watching This is Us for those of you who haven’t yet!)
  3. Remove the lid and stir to combine. Make sure you scrape the sides!stirring peanut cluster mixture in slow cooker
  4. Replace the lid and leave sitting on low for another 30 minutes.
  5. Stir again after 30 minutes. Then, turn off the slow cooker and spoon the mixture into mini cupcake liners.Peanut clusters in mini cupcake liners
  6. Allow the candy to harden for at least an hour. (That’s another episode of This is Us).
  7. Try not to eat them all in one sitting!Finished peanut clusters

If you want to go the extra mile to impress your friends and family, consider giving these peanut clusters as a gift. Cut a piece of card stock paper long enough to fit 5-6 clusters and wide enough to fold sides to hold the clusters in. Then, wrap in Saran wrap and tie a ribbon on each end.
