Crockpot Chocolate Candy

I have seen several recipes for crockpot chocolate candy and I adapted them into one of my own. This is what I did.

lay out a piece of waxed paper on cooling racks 

Ingredients: 1 chocolate bar
                              4 oz baker's chocolate
                                          1 pkg almond bark (16-24 oz)
                          12 oz baking chips
                                       ~2 cups Dry roasted peanuts

Put almond bark into crockpot
(I had just made a batch, so I didn't bother cleaning mine in between)

add chocolate bar

add baker's chocolate.
I've used both semi-sweet and unsweetened

add chips. Cover and cook on low for 1 hour untouched.


The chips may not all be melted. 

Add peanuts.
For 1 batch I added a whole bag (14 oz),
then I had a 35 oz package that I wanted to use for 3 batches,
so I divided it in thirds. It worked out to a little more than 2 cups of peanuts

(if your crockpot is large enough, you can add the peanuts right away,
 but mine don't fit until the chocolate melts)

Recover and cook another half hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Pour candy onto waxed paper

Or spoon out

Smooth out 

the bottom of the candy after it cools 

Break into pieces.
From left to right, raisins, regular chocolate w/peanuts, white chocolate peanuts, mint peanuts

For the white chocolate candy, I used white almond bark, white baker's chocolate, and white baking chips. You could also make this using dark chocolate chips. I'd like to try it with peanut butter chips.

This looks wonderful. I'm allergic to nuts though. Do you have any suggestions for replacing the Almond Bark?

Tammy said...

Anything with chocolate sounds yummy!

Almond Bark doesn't actually have nuts of any kind in it - it is a candy coating.

Yeah, I'm not sure why they call it almond bark.
