- Sugar-free milk chocolate morsels or bars. For this recipe I used Hershey Sugar Free Chocolate

Step-by Step Directions
Step 1: Melt the Chocolate
- Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl.

Step 2: Add the Peanuts
- In a small bowl, add the peanuts and chocolate.
- Stir together until the chocolate has completely coated the nuts.
Step 3: Place on Cookie Sheet
- Prepare a baking tray with parchment baking sheets or waxed paper.
- Using a small cookie scoop or two spoons, drop mounds of the chocolate-covered nuts onto the parchment paper.
- Drizzle any remaining chocolate over the mounds.
Step 4: Allow the Candies to Harden
- Finally, allow the chocolate to set at room temperature.
- You can also do this step in the refrigerator until hardened.
- Then place in a storage container. Make sure you place either parchment paper between the layers. Waxed paper works too.
