Homemade Chocolate Peanut Candies

holiday candy homemade



These Chocolate Peanut candies make a wonderful holiday gift.
It is really nice to present a friend or family member with something that
you have handmade and these little treats are very tasty too!

The hardest part of making these is putting the boxes together! I’m serious. They come flat in the package and it’s very difficult to pull them open and fold without tearing them.

Ingredients and packaging:

  • Candy Melts, light and/or dark chocolate (you can find these at Michaels or any cake and candy supply store)
  • Planters Unsalted Dry Roasted Peanuts (they must be unsalted or the chocolate won’t stick)
  • Candy cups (also found at Michaels or a cake and candy supply store)
  • Candy boxes
  • Stickers to seal the boxes

Melt one pack of the candy melts in a double boiler (or in a pot inside another pot with water underneath as shown in the photos)

Pour the peanuts into the melted chocolate (just mix them in until it is mostly peanuts and not much loose chocolate left)

Immediately spoon into little candy cups on a cookie tray being careful not to fill too full so they will fit properly in the boxes.

Chill in refrigerator or outside (weather permitting) for about an hour. Put them into the boxes and seal the boxes shut with the stickers.
