If you're looking for something to do today then gather up some nuts because it's National Peanut Cluster Day!  Yes, yet another celebration for the well-loved flavor of peanuts.  Let's get right into celebrating National Peanut Cluster Day!


So why does this sweet cluster of nutty goodness get its own holiday? Well, I'd have to say it's because so many people love crunching on peanut clusters. You should know by now that most food holidays don't have much more of a reason for their celebration other than that.  But what is a peanut cluster? Well it's exactly what it sounds like... a cluster of peanuts! They're usually held together in cluster form by a nice coating of milk chocolate. Yep, that's it! Just heat up some chocolate until it's all melted, toss in some de-shelled peanuts, stir and bam you're on your way to peanut clusters!

Put them on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper and all you have to do then is pop them in the fridge or freezer and wait until the chocolate becomes a bit more solid.  Chocolate isn't the only thing used for peanut clusters and sometimes people add other sweet treats into the cluster but that's pretty much the basic idea. Now can you honestly say you don't enjoy peanut clusters? I mean, unless of course you have food allergies.


So how can you celebrate today?  Well, how about you head on down to your local candy store or the candy aisle in a grocery store and start browsing the shelves for some peanut clusters. You can go the basic route if you like and get chocolate covered peanut clusters or you can step outside of the norm. See how many different varieties of peanut clusters you can find and who knows, you might end up liking the new version of the candy.  Or you can swing by the cooking aisle and stock up on supplies to make this yourself. But remember, you're not just limited to milk chocolate! Why not try out dark chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, caramel, peanut butter or whatever else you can find in chip form to melt down!

And don't be afraid to add something extra inside with the peanuts. Think of chewy things you can melt down to mix in with the peanuts before you enclose them in their candy coating. Maybe some soft toffee, caramel or even marshmallow. Get creative with your peanut clusters. But don't forget to get a container of peanuts!  And hey, no one said it had to be just peanuts in the cluster. You can add in a combination of nuts if you like! Try them out with almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts or any other nut you think would compliment the peanut flavor!  By the end of your kitchen fiasco you'll have bowls full of peanut clusters that you can munch on all day.  Or, if your nice, that you'll share with your friends, family and coworkers!  Regardless of what you decide to do to celebrate, I hope that you enjoy your sugar high and crunch on some peanuts today!
