  • 1 (11-ounce) bag Kraft caramel squares, unwrapped
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup unsalted peanuts
  • 1 (16-ounce) package white chocolate CandiQuik


  • Line a baking cookie sheet with waxed paper. Set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt caramels, butter, and cream, using 30-second intervals and stirring vigorously after each interval, until the mixture is smooth. 
  • Add vanilla and peanuts and allow the mixture to cool, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes.
  • Spoon a generous Tablespoon sized drop of caramel and peanut mixture unto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Place in freezer for 5-10 minutes or until the caramel cluster are firm.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the candy coating per the package instructions.
  • Using a fork, dip the caramel clusters in the melted candy coating, covering the cluster completely. Allow excess chocolate to drip off into the bowl, then return the cluster to the baking sheet and continue with the rest of the clusters.
  • Place in the fridge to allow the coating to set. They're ready to package up or star on your holiday cookie tray!
