Candied Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate

Candies Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate

This was supposed to have a mixture of Fruit and Nuts as a topping, but typically me,.. I found these delicious Candy coated Peanuts, so back on the rack with the Fruit and Nuts and here we are with the Candied Peanut and Sea Salt Chocolate.

Super easy - no mold, yes, my heart shaped cookie cutters again!  As some of us in our household like our chocolate with a bit of Sea Salt and others don't, I made half with the Salt and the other half without.

Candies Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate

You will need:

A good quality Chocolate, melted
Candied/Sugared Peanuts
Different size Heart cookie cutters  {or just one size}
Sea Salt {optional}
Sprinkles - I used "lips"  {optional}

Candies Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate

Place your chosen cookie cutters on a piece of aluminum foil {flat plate underneath}
Pour the melted Chocolate into the cutters {to your thickness preference}
Place in the freezer compartment until half set (about 1 - 2 minutes, depending on the thickness}

Top with the Candied Peanuts whilst still half set - add the Sea Salt and Sprinkles {if using} now as well.
Place back in the freezer compartment for another 2 - 3 minutes until fully set.

Gently break off the excess chocolate which has seeped through {see arrows}.
Tap out your chocolate heart from the cookie cutter {I found to push it a little upwards first and then out downwards works best}

Perfect as a teacher or friend gift. Use paper lunch bags with a nice Valentine's ribbon as packaging.


  1. I wish I had seen all the cookie cutter ideas before Christmas, such a great idea! I'm very curious about salt in chocolate. Since I like my sea salt...a lot sounds like its something I would like. I need more hours in the day to cook.

  2. These look so cute and delicious! I am your newest follower!
