CHOCOLATE PEANUT CLUSTERS

1/2 milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp vegetable shortening (do not use a substitute)
1 cup unsalted, dry roasted peanuts

Place all chocolate chips and the shortening in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at medium for 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave an additional 15 seconds, stir, and repeat until chips are melted and the mixture is smooth when stirred.

Add the peanuts.

Drop by teaspoonfuls into 1-inch size candy papers. Let sit until firm, about 1 hour.

Store in an airtight container and keep in a cool dry place.

Yield: 2 dozen candies
