      My Mom makes a similar peanut cluster at christmas. They never last long! In her recipe she adds rice krispie's and I dont think it has shortening in it.

      My grandmother used to make these as part of her holiday candy tray. I love them and they are relatively low in calories compared to alot of other dessert candies. Thanks for sharing.
