Salted Peanut Clusters


Every so often I have leftover melted chocolate from a dessert.  I can't let that beautiful substance go to waste....that would just be criminal.  ;)  Stir in some unsalted, dry roasted peanuts until nicely coated and drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.  Sprinkle on coarse sea salt.  Chill to set.  Easy peasy peanut clusters.  Simple and oh so tasty.
