Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Arrange peanuts and almonds on a baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until fragrant and lightly browned, around 5-7 minutes.

Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper . ( I used mini cupcake paper cups )

Drop chocolate and nuts mixture by the spoonful onto the prepared baking sheet. Top with your choice of sprinkles.
Let it cool and Enjoy !!!

Creating the double boiler :
