1. Melt chips together in microwave for about 1 minute on high. Check and stir. If necessary do another minute. Continue to check and stir until all melted.
2. Stir in peanuts.
3. Drop into little candy cup papers (see note below) or you can drop by teaspoon onto wax paper. Cool and let set.
4. Store between sheets of wax paper in a covered container. They freeze well, too.
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
16 oz bag or can salted peanuts (cocktail peanuts) You can also use cashews.
16 oz. package almond bark, chocolate flavored
Prepare as above, melting chips and almond bark squares together.
Almond bark is found near chocolate chips in the baking aisle. It comes in white or chocolate. It is usually in a rectangular shaped package and has squares that you pop out or take apart. I have seen it called Candiquik coating.
NOTE: You can drop the chocolate / peanut mixture into little cupcake papers (petit-four paper cups or little foil cups.) When I did it that way I got about 56. Around the Christmas holidays, you can find 1 inch diameter candy cups in green and red, or with a holly pattern. Look for them in a craft store like Michael's. You can get around 75 candies if you use those.
