  • 4 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dry roasted, salted peanuts
  • 1 cup raisins


Step 1

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 minute, stir and add 15 more seconds until there is no lump or until it was perfectly melted that when drizzled it forms a smooth ribboning effect. Mix in the peanuts and raisins until well-combined.
