Holiday Crock Pot Candy

Holiday Crock Pot Candy created by Shelby Jo

This recipe was given in one of my recipe swaps and I've been making a batch every Christmas season. Makes a lot! Enough for family and 1 or 2 gift trays.

Ready In:
1hr 20mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 16 ounces unsalted dry roasted peanuts
  • 16 ounces lightly salted dry roasted salted peanuts
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 16 ounces vanilla bark (I always use almond) or 16 ounces almond bark (I always use almond)

directions

  • I whirl my peanuts in the food processor just to grind them a bit but if you prefer just go ahead and use them as is.
  • Pour peanuts into a large crock-pot; add chips and vanilla or almond bark. Cover and turn setting on low. Now get busy with something else for an hour or so. When you come back, stir mixture with a large spoon making sure all the peanuts are well coated.
  • Using whatever size spoon is appropriate for you, (I use a small cooking scoop and it just fills the mini muffin cake liners) spoon out on a cookie sheet and let harden.
  • Keep crock-pot on, no big rush, this is a generous recipe and you will have plenty. When sufficiently hard place in festive containers.
  • Don't expect it to last very long because each piece is filled with a wonderful taste of chocolate and is chock full of peanuts.

    This recipe is great and you can always change it up a bit if you don't like the flavor combo. One work of caution. Do not think you can substitute white chocolate chips or the Baker's white chocolate baking bars for the almond bark. They do NOT melt the same. They melt, but aren't as viscous as the almond bark. I ended up having to add another 12 oz of chocolate chips (all I had) to get it thin enough to stir and dip! YIKE!!! But, still....not the recipes fault!

    If anyone wants an easy impressive treat to give as a gift, this is the one. I made this candy for my 12 co-workers as I wanted something easy and relatively inexpensive. This was absolutely fabulous! I have a large crockpot, so I doubled the recipe and had no problem. I do want to caution, don't leave it unattended too long without stirring, as the almond bark will burn. I used a spoon to drop them onto waxed paper, and then to speed up the process, I placed my trays in the freezer and refrigerator. My co-workers absolutely loved this candy! Julie B, this is a winner. Merry Christmas and Hapy New Year. Sue
