Crock Pot Candy – Quick and Easy Homemade Sweet Treat to Serve and Give

Everyone loves a homemade sweet treat especially during the holidays, but people sometime dread all the steps (I don’t own a candy thermometer nor would I know what to do with it if I had one.) and expense that can go into making them. Well, I will be sharing a few that are super easy to make (even I can’t mess them up) and give as quick gifts. I’ll start today with a new favorite.

Crock Pot Candy

Although this recipe had been around for years, I had not tried it because I thought there was no way it could be that easy and taste great. Well, I was wrong. It is that easy and it is that good.

  • 34.5 ounces dry roasted peanuts (can use honey roasted as well)
  • 32 ounces vanilla flavored almond bark (broken up)
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces German chocolate bar (broken up)
  • Optional garnish: sprinkles

Simply layer ingredients in crock pot starting with peanuts (it almost filled mine completely up). Cover and cook on low for 1 hour without stirring. After 1 hour, stir well and continue to cook stirring every 15-20 minutes for a total of 2 hours.

Line countertop with parchment paper.

Turn off crockpot. Spoon out onto paper. A tablespoon size scoop is perfect for portioning these out. Make sure they don’t touch and that you add any sprinkles or garnish right away.

Allow to dry completely before packaging. Will keep several days in an airtight container-  if they last that long. I was so excited by how these turned out that I did not count the total number it made – but it had a large yield.

These were a big hit both at a recent gathering and in the break room at work. (Sometimes you just need a little something sweet to get you through the rest of the work day.) These also package up very easily for gifting either in cute gift boxes or simply in a cellophane bag with a bow.
