When I saw this recipe on my friend Kitty's blog Kitty's Kozy Kitchen last year, I saved the recipe in my Christmas 2015 file. Good thing I have a folder or else I would have forgotten all about it.
The recipe is from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, and it makes a nice gift for neighbors and friends. This candy is addictive! I packaged it in holiday bags that I found at Walmart, and used my foodie gift tags from Crate and Barrel.
It's my Christmas tradition to put holiday CD's in my car even though I can easily get the music on Pandora or my iPhone. I just love looking at the covers :-)
Here's the recipe for Crockpot Chocolate Candy. You could make it in time for Christmas. It's that easy!
2 pounds salted dry-roasted peanuts (I used unsalted)
4 ounces German's sweet chocolate (about 4 squares)
One 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. Add the dried
cranberries, if desired. Layer the chocolate over the peanuts and dried
cranberries, beginning with the sweet chocolate, followed by the
chocolate chips and then 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 into cupcake pan liners using about 2 tablespoons per liner.
Allow the candy to cool completely before removing the cupcake liners.
Kitty said she just drops the candy onto waxed paper so I did half that way. Joe liked the presentation in the cupcake liners best.
I am joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday. Thanks for stopping by!
