– 1 bag milk chocolate chips – 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips – 1 bag white chocolate chips – 1 bag dark chocolate chips – 2 pounds roasted salted peanuts – Optional: flaky salt such as Maldon sea salt
Place the chocolate in slow cooker.
Cook on LOW for 1 to 1 ½ hours.
Stir often to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn.
When the chocolate is melted, give it a good stir and add the nuts to the crockpot.
Stir well and turn the slow cooker to warm.
Use a cookie scoop to scoop clusters onto the parchment lined baking sheets. If desired, sprinkle with salt every 5 or 6 clusters. (Before the chocolate starts to set.)
Allow to set in the refrigerator for about an hour, or until firm.
