These peanut clusters are a delicious no-bake dessert. This chocolate marshmallow dessert will keep in the fridge for up to a week, so it's a great make-ahead recipe too.

I was expecting it to be dairy-free, since it was presented under the heading of "Dairy free desserts," and was disappointed that it wasn't because of the inclusion of semi sweet chocolate chips. Perhaps you are aware of an uncommon brand that does not include milkfat or milk powder in the ingredients list. If that is the case, it would be helpful for you to include that particular brand of chips here in your recipe, so that we can make a truly dairy-free dessert. Otherwise, please consider excluding such a recipe in your list of dairy-free desserts.
