Crockpot Peanut Clusters


This recipe was in our local newspaper a couple of years ago and I knew I had to try it.  The recipe called for Spanish peanuts but I prefer dry roasted so I did make that change.  This recipe is so simple and makes over 100 peanut clusters!  More importantly, it only takes about an hour and most of that time you're just waiting for the chocolate to melt!! 

 You'll need a 24 oz. package of almond bark, 12 oz. pkg. of semi-sweet chips, 12 oz. pkg. of milk chocolate chips, and 2 jars of dry roasted peanuts (one regular, one unsalted).

 Chop the almond bark into smaller pieces and place in crockpot.

 Add remaining ingredients and stir well.  Turn crockpot on low and cover.  Stir mixture every 15 minutes to allow everything to melt a little faster.

 Have plenty of pans lined with wax paper.  You will need them.  This recipe makes a ton of clusters!!!!

 Again, stir occasionally!
 When chocolate is melted, give one last stir to make sure almond bark is completely blended with the other chocolate- no white streaks.

 Use a teaspoon to spoon onto wax paper! 

Candy making at its best!!!

  6. Hi! Just came across your blog from a comment you left on Cooking with Libby about crock pot cooking. Signed up to get your updates by email and have been perusing your recipes. I make this recipe but with one added ingredient. Crushed chips! I know, it isn't a healthy addition but does add great flavour and crunch! But honestly I only make it at Christmas - temptation is too great! Also it is great to add raisins, dried fruit, etc. for variety. Enjoying your blog and looking forward to checking it all out! :o)
