Crockpot Peanut Clusters

Crockpot Peanut Clusters are a special treat for Santa's tray along with all your Christmas guests that will be stopping by. 

Trust me, you will be making these for New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day, and every other special occasion coming your way.  It's a perfectly sized blend of sweet and salty, crunchy, smooth chocolate.

Crockpot Peanut Clusters
{adapted from  Redbook, Tricia Yearwood}
  • 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
Put the peanuts in the bottom of a 4-quart slow-cooker.  Layer the chocolate over the peanuts, beginning with the sweet chocolate, followed by the chocolate chips, then add the almond bark.  Set the temperature on low and cook for 3 hours.  Do not stir the mixture.  After 3 hours, stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth.  Drop the candy in 1-1/2" candy cups.  Allow the candy to cool completely.  Makes approximately 90 to 95 candies.

Sugar and Spice makes Christmas Nice and so does a Christmas baby, "Happy Birthday" Zach, and Go Boise State Broncos @ the Maaco Bowl tonight!

  2. 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.

    Sending very Merry Christmas wishes to you and thanking you for all of your wonderful posts and for being a SWEET blogging Friend!

  6. 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

  12. 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!
