Crock pot Candy

     After searching (as we are planning to make this today) I realized that I never transferred this recipe from my old blog. So for today, enjoy a yummy reprint:


My Aunt shared this easy holiday treat with us. It makes a lot, after the first few I made them smaller and we ended up with 180!

Crockpot Candy      
35 oz. salted peanuts (large can at WalMart)
1 1/2 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bar German sweet chocolate, divided in pieces
1 bag Heath English toffee bits
2 pkgs. (1 1/2 lb. each) of white almond bark, divided into blocks
Layer all ingredients in order listed in large crockpot. Cook on low for 3 hours. Do not open lid. Stir and drop by teaspoon onto waxed paper. Makes over 100 pieces. Let harden, peel off and store in containers. Note: The almond bark will not appear melted even after 3 hours. After stirring it will mix completely. I have also used some unsweetened German chocolate and chocolate almond bark.
That is just how she shared it. We made a few changes. Cashews were on sale for the holidays, so we substituted them for the peanuts. They are great both ways. Enjoy!

  5. Sounds yummy. Just wondering whether there is anything that could be used instead of whole nuts-my children aren't keen on them? I wonder whether crushed biscuits would work.

    1. I haven't tried any substitutions. Let me know if you do. I use crackers in a toffee recipe but think they might get soggy or burned after 3 hours in the crock pot. We did stir in crisp rice cereal in the last bit that remained in the crockpot and that turned into something entirely different.
