    Why does my peanuts always burn when I leave it cooking on low for 3 hours?

    Wanted to give this an updated review. This was the best recipe I found in terms of having easy-to-find ingredients. I have made this twice now. Once following the recipe & directions to the letter. This last time, I could not get them made in 3 hours. I had the crockpot turned off (but not opened) after nearly four hours. About 1.5 hours later, I finally opened it up to stir and it was fine! Got a rave review from the person who "won" this in our office's white elephant gift exchange, too. The combination of the chocolate and the salty peanuts is to die for!

    Unbelievably easy and delicious too! DD (age 14) and I made this together. We all loved it. We'd also like to try it with other nuts such as cashews, pecans and macadamias. Yum! Like the other reviewer, I will be adding this to my recipes that I use for homemade gifts. Wonderful!

    I knew this was "WOWEE!" when I first saw the recipe! This is chocolate covered peanuts <i>to die for</i>! My DH saw these laying out to cool and said, "You can only take a few to work for the closest of friends." This from a man who rarely likes anything! So easy to make; definitely going into my gift rotation! Thanks, SueVM! Made for <b>PAC Spring '09</b>.
