This delicious Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Candy recipe was given to me by a friend. It is so easy to make and great for gift giving for the holidays or any occasion. Make sure you use a Crockpot and not a slow cooker. The Crockpot does not get as hot as the slow cooker does on the low setting. The candy may not turn out correctly if you use this recipe in a slow cooker. For the recipe you will need salted and unsalted roasted peanuts, semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and vanilla bark.
Ingredients needed for Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Candy:
12 ounces white chocolate chips
16 ounces unsalted dry roasted peanuts
16 ounces vanilla bark
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
16 ounces lightly salted dry roasted salted peanuts
Directions for making Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Candy:
Step 1: Add peanuts into a large crock-pot; add chocolate and whiteÂ chocolate chips and vanilla or almond bark.
Step 2: Put lid on Crockpot; turn setting to low.
Step 3: Cover and cook for 2-3 hours, do not stir.
Step 4: After the chocolate is completely melted; stir to combine and coat peanuts.
Step 5: Using a tablespoon, drop a heaping spoonful of candy on wax paper, into cupcake lined mini muffin tins or use regular muffin tins, but use two tablespoons of the chocolate mixture.

You may use almond bark in place of the vanilla bark.
Use caution when dropping hot candy.
