READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Chef1MOM-Connie

I NEEDED a chocolate fix, searched the net for chocolate candy I could make fast but not have to stand there and do it. (I wasn't lazy, just busy crocheting) and still the fix got hold of me. Came up with this recipe from several I read and what was in my cupoard) So thank you Zaarites and www for giving me some clues and assistance. NOTE- DH had 1 then 10 then took them to hunting camp. They were the winning hand candy as he did not want to part. When someone won the hand they got a chocolate. LOL The guys called and said I need to double this batch for next camp trip! Pinnochle and Chocolate LOL

I absoltely loved the crock-pot idea. What a unique and different approach to chocolate covered peanuts. I used milk chocolate chips and also the chocolate/caramel combo chips. Turned out fantastic. thanks for the idea Chef1mom~
