Peanut Butter Clusters

190ml smooth peanut butter
125ml honey
1,2ml salt
4 x 250ml puffed rice/Rice Crispies
80g chocolate, chopped
a handful of peanuts, finely chopped

Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cups.
Add the peanut butter, honey and salt to a small saucepan set over a very low heat.
Stir continuously until melted and amalgamated.
Measure the puffed rice into a large mixing bowl and pour the peanut butter mixture over.
Mix thoroughly with a spatula, making sure that all of the puffed rice is covered in the sticky goodness.
Scoop spoonfuls into the lined muffin tin, dividing the mixture equally. Press down onto each cluster with the back of a spoon to ensure that it is compact and sticks together.
Set aside to cool completely – at least 30 minutes.
Add the chopped chocolate to a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water and allow to melt completely.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the clusters and sprinkle with the chopped peanuts before the chocolate sets.
Store the peanut cluster in an airtight container for up to a week.
