Finely chop the chocolate and store in airtight container for own use or wrap in bags for giving. To prepare sipping chocolate, heat up 1 cup milk (whole milk is best) until scalded and add 2-3 tablespoons prepared chocolate. Let melt for 2 minutes then stir until smooth.
Melt chocolates in heatproof bowl and set over simmering water. Do not let water touch the bottom of bowl or the chocolate could scorch. Stir until the mixture is melted and smooth. Once smooth, remove from heat and add peanuts. Stir until completely coated. Using two spoons, drop candy (about 2 tablespoons) on parchment-lined baking sheets. Let cool until the chocolate is set. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week or chill and store 3 weeks.
