Place chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of hot water.
Slowly melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally until smooth.
Add the peanuts and stir until the peanuts are completely covered by the chocolate.
Remove the bowl from the saucepan.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the parchment paper.
Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes.
