Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Cluster Candies

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!

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!
