Homemade Chocolate Turns Crumblychocolate turns crumbly

I have been making Peanut Clusters a lot lately, and it seems that I just can't get them right. Once I add the butter, the chocolate turns brittle and crumbly before I can shape them on the wax paper. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can make the chocolate stay smooth until I put them in the fridge?

This is my recipe:
1/2 c. sugar 1/4 c. milk 1 heaping tbsp. cocoa 1 heaping tbsp. butter 1/2 c. roasted peanuts Mix sugar, cocoa, and milk. Boil 6 minutes, counting from time the bubbling begins. Add butter, nuts and vanilla. Take from the heat and stir just enough to mix in the nuts. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper. 

1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. milk
1 heaping tbsp. cocoa
1 heaping tbsp. butter
1/2 c. roasted peanuts

Mix sugar, cocoa, and milk. Boil 6 minutes, counting from time the bubbling begins. Add butter, nuts and vanilla. Take from the heat and stir just enough to mix in the nuts. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper.`
