Peanut Cluster Balls

Peanut Cluster Balls

            Microwave cooking is great for candy recipes because it melts foods so beautifully, and you can do everything in just one bowl! These candy charmers are impressively good and ready in very little time.

 Serves 8 (2 each)

 ½ cup miniature marshmallows
 ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
 ½ cup SPLENDA* Granular
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon reduced-calorie margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/2  cup dry-roasted peanuts

            Place a large piece of waxed paper on a baking sheet. In an 8-cup glass microwaveable measuring cup, combine marshmallows, chocolate chips, SPLENDA* and margarine . Cover and microwave on HIGH (100% power) for 30 seconds, stirring after 15 seconds. Stir in vanilla extract. Add peanuts completely. Drop mixture by tablespoonful onto prepared baking sheet to form 16 mounds. Refrigerate for at least 39 minutes or until firm.
