Crockpot recipes are pretty much my favorite types of recipes. All you have to do is throw the ingredients together, set it, and forget it for a few hours. I’ve noticed lately a lot of crockpot recipes coming out had to do with desserts, and that just blows my mind!
I know that if you’re a big treat-maker for Christmas, you spend a ton of time in the kitchen putting together recipes and making large messes. Well, not with this recipe. This recipe ROCKS! It’s one step and less than 5 minutes of prep. Set it and forget it!
Here’s what you need for this crockpot Peanut Cluster Candies recipe:
- 2- 11 oz bags of Nestle Toll House Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Morsels
- 1- 11 oz bag of Semi-Sweet Morsels
- 1- 24 oz brick of vanilla almond bark
- 1- 24 oz container of dry-roasted peanuts
- 1- 24 oz container of cocktail peanuts
Throw all ingredients into a crockpot, cover with a lid and place on the lowest setting for 2-3 hours. Once all the chocolates are melted, stir completely so all the peanuts are coated. Using a cookie scoop or large spoon, spoon out onto parchment or wax paper. Be sure to make a lot of counter space, as this recipe makes about 75-80 clusters. That is a lot, which makes for a perfect gift for lots of people!
This is probably my favorite candy recipe to date.. It takes just like those famous crunchy chocolate and peanut candy bars.. I have to contain myself so I don’t eat them all. The perfect bite-sized treat!
