Chocolate-Covered Peanuts

Merry Christmas!  A few days ago, we baked and put together plates of Christmas goodies for friends and neighbors.  It was a lot of fun.  The easiest thing we made was chocolate-covered peanuts.  Melted some chocolate, added peanut butter, and dropped onto piles of roasted, salted peanuts.  Easy!  You may need more or less chocolate, and peanuts.  I kind of made this up as I went along.

by What A Dish!

1 lb, 5 oz chocolate chips (I used a mix of milk and semi-sweet chocolate)
1/3 cup smooth, natural peanut butter
3 cups (more or less) roasted, salted peanuts

Line two large baking sheets with wax paper.  Lay peanuts in small piles on the wax paper, about 5 per pile.  In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter, stirring frequently.  When smooth, drop spoonfuls of the pb chocolate over the salted peanuts.  Place in the fridge until chocolate is hardened and set.  Enjoy.
