Mango Ginger Peanut Clusters
Spring is upon us and I have a spring cleaning bug … badly. I want to clear away the clutter in my house, in my mind, in my soul. Let it all go, make space.
Strangely, that is how these little clusters came to be. I was cleaning off the clutter from the countertops, putting things away, and I came across a bowl with white chocolate melted in it from my last chocolate-melting experiment. I have this thing … I hate to waste food, especially things like chocolate, so I let the bowls sit with the chocolate in them until I am doing another chocolate thing. I decided I didn’t want to let this sit on my counter–it had to go. So I melted the white chocolate and dug through my cupboards to find something to dip in it.
A few minutes later I had some mango ginger peanut clusters, ready to go in the fridge. They set up quickly. I ate one to make sure it was good (oh yes!) and took the rest to work to share with my friends. They went quickly, a nice little sweet bite.
I do apologize that there are no measurements in this “recipe” … I don’t know exactly how much chocolate was in the bowl and I didn’t measure the mango or the ginger or the peanuts. You don’t need to be precise here anyway, just add stuff until you feel it’s right, then drop the mixture onto a silicon liner or wax paper and let the white chocolate set.
- Dried mango, chopped
- Candied ginger, chopped (recipe here: ... or use store-bought)
- White chocolate bars (chopped) or white chocolate chips or almond bark, chopped
- Dry roasted or honey roasted peanuts
- Line a baking sheet with silicon liner or wax paper.
- Chop up equal amounts of the dried mango and candied ginger into fine bits.
- Put the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 90 seconds, then stir a lot. If the chocolate isn't all melting, microwave another 30 seconds and stir a lot more. Once again, if you can't stir out the chunks, microwave another 30 seconds and stir.
- Once the white chocolate is melted, add the dried mango and candied ginger along with enough peanuts so that the white chocolate just coats all the ingredients.
- Drop the mixture into clusters onto the prepared pan. Set in the fridge for a few minutes until the chocolate is set. Store in an airtight container.
