Crock Pot Candy

Crock Pot Candy

Have you ever tried to make candy in your crock pot? Until I tried this recipe, I had never heard of such a thing! But let me tell you, this stuff is so good, I think I’ll be making candy in my crock pot every year. 🙂

This recipe is so easy to make that you have no excuse not to try it! Basically you dump three different kinds of chocolate in your slow cooker, add some peanuts, and turn it on. That’s it! OK, you do have to stir every once in awhile. 🙂

But seriously, it’s that easy. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper (or into some mini muffin liners if you’re feeling fancy) and you’ve got some seriously delicious candy.

It is so rich and creamy, and full of sweet and salty flavors in every bite. Plus it makes a ton, so there is plenty to share with friends and family.

This crock pot candy is definitely going to be a new family tradition. We can’t get enough of it!
