M&Ms added bright color, crunchy texture, and a chocolate flavor to our M&M Clusters. The salty and sweet ingredients made a unique and irresistible combination.

This recipe works with milk chocolate, too.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups small pretzels, broken into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup salted dry-roasted peanuts
  • 8 ounces white chocolate, melted but warm
  • 1/2 cup mini M&M candies

Instructions

  1. 1. Mix clusters: Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine pretzels and peanuts in medium bowl. Stir in white chocolate until combined.

    2. Shape clusters: Spoon tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle 4 or 5 M&Ms over each cluster. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens, about 15 minutes, and serve. (Once hardened, clusters can be stored in airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.)
