Crockpot Peanut Clusters
Nothing could be easier than making candy in a crockpot. It's delicious and fun to share with friends and family at parties or in goodie gifts.
Serves: approximately 90-95 candies
  • 2 pounds (36 ounces) salted dry-roasted peanuts
  • 4 ounces (4 squares) German's Sweet Chocolate
  • 1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups)
  • 2-1/2 pounds white almond bark
  • 1-1/2" candy cups
  1. Put the peanuts in the bottom of a 4-quart slow-cooker.
  2. Layer the chocolate over the peanuts, beginning with the sweet chocolate, followed by the chocolate chips, then add the almond bark.
  3. Set the temperature on low and cook for 3 hours. Do not stir the mixture.
  4. After 3 hours, stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth.
  5. Drop the candy in 1-1/2" candy cups.
  6. Allow the candy to cool completely.
I found this recipe in Redbook Magazine and it was shared by Tricia Yearwood.

    Well now, isn’t this a lovely sight to wake up too! I could do a few of these for breakfast, right? Oh, but I would have had to get them on before bed.

    They do look delicious and so pretty in the little red papers.

    Sounds yummy! There haven’t been any chocolate chips in the grocery stores here for a couple of months. And I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to find almond bark. A friend gifted us with homemade toffee today so I am having that with some jasmine green tea. Delish! Happy holidays to you and yours, Tammy

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I love peanut brittle and I love crock pots….so perfect combination!

  12. Jacqueline

    What a clever idea! I agree, the sweet/salty combination just works doesn’t it? And to have it slowly melting while you are doing other things is pure genius! Have a wonderful family filled Christmas!
