Chocolate Peanut Clusters--Delicious and Easy (No Bake Cookies)
A No-Bake Family Favorite
Chocolate peanut clusters or mocha peanut clusters, as they are called, have been a family favorite for years.
I was given this recipe by my mother-in-law, Mary. She was a great cook and spent many happy hours in her kitchen whipping up delicious cookies and squares. This recipe had been a well-guarded family secret but as Mary got older, she decided to share her favorites with the family. Everyone was so glad she did!
A no-bake cookies may seem like a strange concept but the method is well-suited to recipes for softer cookies. The melted ingredients are key to these cookies setting up as they cool. The advantage of no-bake cookies is that they are quicker to make, so are great when you are short on time or patience but have a hankering for a chewy chocolate snack. With the butter, peanuts, coffee and chocolate, these cookies offer a rich, satisfying flavor.
