Serving Size: 1 (86 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 24
"I absolutely love this recipe! As a person who works full time and is always making something for bake sales for my daughter's school, it is extremely easy to make and tasty. I have a rather small crockpot and this is a generous recipe, but it will still work if you stir it about midway through cooking."
"I made these before Christmas, using a cookie scoop. When I realized the candies were way too big, I put them all back into the crockpot until they were melted, then used a small spoon to drop the candy onto waxed paper. Very tasty, and this recipe makes a huge batch."
"This recipe is sooo easy and VERY GOOD.Everyone just LOVED it! We thought it tasted like a snikers bar without the carmel.Wonderful!"
"Very good easy recipe, took it to work everyone wanted the recipe. I've also left out the nuts and added toasted coconut just before removing from the crockpot and made it with rice crisp cereal. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe."
"I am always looking for "easy" recipes that hold together well so I can send these goods out to our Soldiers in care packages. This recipe is exceptional for this! I'm going to be sending out four packages from Soldiers I either adopted or co-adopted this month at www.soldiersangels.org I am going to also send some coffee and in a separate baggy (double wrapped) a toothbrush and toothpaste and hand wipe! Think that will give them a really nice treat that way! Love being able to help those who do so much for us! This recipe is helping me do that. It's delicious and easy!"
"Thanks for posting. I lost this recipe, and found it again here. We often make this at work, since we are using a crock pot,and then we all get to take some home. I also use pecan and almonds."
"I love this recipe! I made it last year, it didn't take me long, made lots, and my picky family LOVED it. I plan to do it again this year for gifts."
"This was really good and really easy. I used chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. Then 4 ounces of a really good dark chocolate bar. It was really good, and so easy. ((1 bag chocolate chips, 2 bags white choc chips)) I tried it with caramel once I didn't like it."
"Made this first time this year for my family Christmas get together. Found it wonderful and easy. Few changes I made, used lightly salted peanuts as someone else had mentioned, and I used Chocolate Almond Bark instead of the white. The white seemed to make my candies have a washed out color, and I wanted that deep brown. As someone else mentioned, this makes ALOT! Did a 2/3rd size reciepe and I got 76 candies out of it."
"I like to spoon this mixture over mini candy bars and let it set up as a kind of candy stuffed peanut cluster for extra oomph. Kind of reminiscent of the old Bun candy bars. Mini Reese's cups, mini Snickers, Milky Way, 3 Musketeer, Rolo's, Vanilla Cream Drops, mini cookies, in the center of a peanut cluster. Such a simple thing to do, and it seems like a no-brainer, but when you do it, people marvel."
"I have a girl friend who is allergic to peanuts. She had been craving, being pregnant, a chocolatey candy. I came across this and thought.. what would happen if I replaced the peanuts with dates, raisins, and mini pretzels. Well, needless to say IT WORKED OUT GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for a perfect solution and versatile recipe!"
"great recipe - I also make varieties, changing nuts, adding coconut and using peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. Love it and easy to do."
"Great, yummy, ultra-easy candy. I've made it twice so far and not one bit has been wasted. Thanks so much!! I love the combo of chocolates in the recipe!"
"This recipe is FANTASTIC! I make candy all the time and most candy recipes are time consuming and tedious. I was very skeptical, thinking the candy would not firm up properly. But, because I just bought a new crockpot, I was intrigued. I followed the recipe exactly using the 2 hr cooking time. I did stir it about 1 1/2 hr. into the cooking time and then again at the end. I used two large spoons to dole it out onto the wax paper - one to scoop and another to push it off the other spoon. I put the tray into the freezer to quickly harden and then kept refrigerated. I took this to my big family Thanksgiving get-together. It set out room temp the whole day with no problems with texture. I always take a lot of requested sweets every year that are all my family's favorites, so it had a lot of competition. Everyone raved over it. So my rating of 5 stars is really backed by about 30 other people! Thanks Elizabeth for sharing this. It is now another requested recipe I will have to bring every Thanksgiving!"
"Awesome!!!!!!! Thank you for posting this it came out perfect I followed the recipe as posted and everything was a big hit I will be making this again."
"This is great, so easy and taste wonderful. I made this to add to my Christmas plates more out of curiosity than anything else and was surprised at how easy it was. I followed the directions to the "T" and it was perfect. Right down to the 1 1/2 hours on low. I'm fortunate that my pot has a keep warm setting so that while I was stirring the candy stayed warm and melted. It dried to a nice shiny gloss and looks AND tastes awesome. It does make a lot of candy - but for the holidays that's great. I didn't even need any extra stirring, Just at the end to mix it all up."
"So simple to prepare. I forgot to rate this last Christmas. we gave them out on our holiday trays and they were a hit. Thanksfor sharing with us."
"Made these to take to work and everyone loved them"
"I too LOVE this recipe. I am using it for the 2nd yr in a row for my Christmas candies. It is SO good & makes a ton. The ingredients can get a little pricey, but it's cheap compared to what I would spend on gifts for the same people. I could NOT find almond bark this year...don't know why...it's usually not a problem. So, instead I used 3 C Semi-sweet choc chips, 2 C white choc chips, 1 4oz bar of Ghirardelli Premium white baking bar, & 1 C of milk choc chip. Oh, I also used 2 16oz jars of lightly salted peanuts instead of 1 salt & 1 not. Still turned out super yummy & set up nicely. Thx for a wonderfully easy candy recipe that tastes wonderfully!"
"I love this recipe, thanks for posting. I didnâ€™t have German chocolate so I used Â½ cup milk chocolate chips instead and it turned out great. Also to make it a little more interesting I spooned it over unwrapped Hersey Caramel Kisses. My whole family loved it."
