The Easiest Ever Peanut Clusters are just that, the easiest ever. There’s something to be said about an uncomplicated recipe, especially during this time of year. As we count down to Christmas I want to share one of our favorites not only to offer an easy option through the holidays but to offer up a “beginners” recipe that the kids will enjoy too. I have two grand-nieces that are excellent bakers-in-training. I thought of them this year as I was clustering the peanut clusters for our annual Avenue Hotel B & B holiday party earlier this week. They were a hit! Enjoy this recipe and Happy Holidays!
