These white chocolate peanut butter candy clusters are insanely yummy, easy to make, and perfect for gifting during the holidays!
My savvy friend Barb shared the recipe for these white chocolate peanut butter candy clusters years ago, and it has been a fave recipe of mine ever since. I’ve never served these without getting requests for the recipe; folks love this candy!
This 5-ingredient recipe yields yummy candy clusters that have myriad flavors and textures. They are simultaneously sweet, salty, crunchy, fluffy and creamy. They are rich~but not enough to keep me from eating at least two at one time:-)
I typically use the Publix rice krispys for these, as they are cheaper than the “real rice Krispies” but just as good. I’ve never used Krispix, but it can be used as well.
My fave white chocolate chips are Ghirardelli, recommended by Cook’s Illustrated. C.I. taste testers describe Ghirardhelli chips’ â€œsweet creamâ€ flavor as being â€œrich,â€ and â€œmilky,â€ with a â€œbutteryâ€ texture.
Cook’s Illustrated taste tests gave Nestle white chocolate chips a “recommended with reservations” rating, describing them as “absurdly sweet.” I don’t always follow CI taste test recommendations, but I do agree with them on the chips and think that Ghirardelli is the best.
Holiday gifting: I like to wrap the clusters in parchment or a clear cellophane bag tied with organdy ribbon. I always share a written copy of the recipe as well.
If you make this yummy candy, please let me know how you like it! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
