Chocolate Peanut butter Peanut Clusters

I have to eat things without gluten or corn and was really wanting some chocolate so at Christmas my daughter, granddaughter, grandson and I decided to make some candy that I could eat and everyone liked it too. I will share some more with you later but here is one of the ones we made.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Peanut Clusters
1 12oz pkg gluten and corn free chocolate chips(we used Whole Foods 365 brand)
1 12oz pkg gluten and corn free peanut butter chips
1 jar of roasted peanuts (make sure no cornstarch has been used by looking at the ingredients on the jar.)

In a microwave safe bowl put 2/3 of the pkg of chocolate chips and the whole pkg of peanut butter chips in the bowl. Heat at 30 second intervals till melted. Stirring half way through. Take bowl out and add the rest of the chocolate chips to temper the chocolate stir till the chips are melted. Add the jar of peanuts or as many as you like to taste. Stir till thoroughly mixed then you can either spread the mixture out on wax paper and let it cool or you can use a spoon and put the mixture out by spoonfuls on the wax paper and leave to cool. If you spread the mixture out when it is cool you can break it into pieces. Store in an airtight container and enjoy.

Crocheted Steampunk Wrister

My Grandchildren and their friends have a Steampunk group and so I crocheted the girls a steampunk sort of wrister to go with their outfits. They seemed to like them and wore them all weekend. It was a simple pattern that just went around the wrist and across the top of the hand so that the palm was open. I added keys to the hand and a tie to hold the sides together. I think they turned out pretty good. Here is a couple of pictures. What do you think? Leave me a comment if you would like to buy one.
Tomorrow I will be giving you my latest baby afghan pattern.

Throwback Thursday Recipe of My Grandmothers

Guess I have been feeling a little nostalgic this week and was looking at some of my Grandmothers old recipes. My Grandmothers were good cooks and we always loved what they had for use to eat. My Grandma Snodgrass lived with us and she taught me how to make fudge, divinity, noodles and so many other things. Grandma Jester could make a hamburger special and so good. I loved her hamburgers, fried chicken and just about anything she cooked but her baking goodies were the best. I loved her Watergate Cake, her Banana Cake and all the breads and cookies she made. I thought today on Throw Back Thursday to share one of Grandma Jesters Recipes with you. Sure does bring back memories.

This Recipe is in Grandma's handwriting which makes it special to me. This Cake was so moist and flavorful and I loved it. When she died she had one in the freezer for a friend who loved this cake. What a treat.
This is a picture of my Grandma Gusta F Bilyeu Jester.
Hope you will try Grandma's Recipe. It was fun thinking about her and all her goodies she made us.
