Watch for fun little bowls on sale after Christmas and fill them with Crock-Pot candy, wrap with a little cello' and tie with a cute bow!

Save your jars throughout the year and stack a few chocolates in a jar, wrap with some cello' and tie with a ribbon!

Need a quick plate of goodies for that Holiday Party?  Turn some cupcake wrappers inside out and place a chocolate in each. Such a cute way to serve them!

It's fun to decorate them with different sprinkles too!  Red and White little sprinkles, or little white sprinkles with white sprinkle snowflakes!  Or chocolate jimmies and sprinkle snowflakes... you can even leave them plain!

Here's the recipe and I would love to know if you already make Crock-Pot Candy or if you try the recipe and how you like it!   

Melt in Your Mouth Crock-Pot Candy

2 - 12 oz. cans of Peanuts
1 - 12 oz. bag of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 - 12 oz. bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
2 - 12 oz. bags of Peanut Butter Chips
2 - 1 lb. pkgs. of White Almond Bark broken into squares

Layer the ingredients into your 4 Qt. or larger crock-pot - in the order listed above. 
Cover with the lid and cook on Low for 2 hours. 
After 2 hours remove lid and stir
Replace the lid and let "cook" for another 30 minutes
Stir again and make sure all the chocolate and almond bark is melted and combined
Spoon candy onto wax paper 
Decorate if desired
Let Cool
{takes about 1-2 hours to cool and harden} 

I use a regular size cookie scoop instead of a spoon

approx. 10 dozen {using a cookie scoop}

It would be fun to experiment with this recipe.  
i.e. use Mint Chocolate Chips instead of the Peanut Butter Chips.

I've never heard of this but it sounds yummy! I think I'm going to have to give it a try! Thanks for the recipe! :0)

This candy looks so delicious and easy to make. I need some small gifts for members of a small quilt group I belong to and this recipe fits the bill. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the recipe Jodi. I'm going to be baking soon, I'm adding this recipe to my list.

I made a similar recipe of this over the weekend. No peanut butter chips at all and I did not want to use peanuts. I put all the chocolates in the crockpot for about 1.5 hours. While it was melting, I toasted pecans in the oven (350 degrees for about 15 minutes) and let cool. Then stirred the roasted pecans in and spooned out into red and green mini foil cupcake liners. Have had lots of compliments. My recipe did not call for peanut butter chips but bet that would be good.

Chocolates in the crock pot?! I'm in big trouble. I have to try this!

Sherry said...

Thanks for sharing your recipe and the fun ways to use it. I am planning to give this a try.

This sounds a fabulous recipe, but some of the ingredients are not easily available in the UK, so a couple of questions:

For the Peanut Butter Chips can I use peanut butter out of a jar?
White Almond Bark is this just white chocolate?

Thanks for posting the recipe - Happy Christmas :)

Carol said...

Thanks Jodi! That sounds absolutely YUMMY!

Must try to make these! I loves my crock pot. Just gave my Daughter her first one.

Amber said...

You had me at "peanut butter chocolate". Thanks for sharing what looks to be a delicious (and easy) recipe. I will have to try. And, I love the way you used the cupcake wrappers. They're adorable!

I have done crock pot chocolates like this and they are so perfect!! I'm excited to try the peanut butter addition. Your gifting ideas are super cute! Merry Christmas Jodi!!

I tried your recipe with a few tweaks. I used up some semisweet chips in my cupboard and there wasn't quite 12 oz so substituted milk chocolate toffee chips. My candy is a bit lighter in color than yours but oh so yummy. I ran out of steam so out the last of it on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and broke it apart when it cooled. Not as pretty, but just as tasty!

Oh my lands, this is wonderful. I have 103 pieces of candy. I made this in my slow cooker which I think is different than a crockpot. I checked it at 2 hours then again at 15 minutes which was a good thing because the texture on the outside edges was getting very thick. It stirred down fine. The blocks of almond bark I bought from the store were 1 lb. 8 oz. So per a friend I had forwarded this recipe to had made it the day before and she said she had used the the same size and she used it all. I had extra chocolate in the pot and thru in mini marshmallows. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It will a definite repeat every Christmas now.

Have a Merry Christmas.
