Crockpot Candy (for a crowd)

I've seen a lot of variations around the net for this simple recipe.

This version was shared with me by my good friend, Becky.  We enjoy spending time with her and her hubby, Dennis, in FL during the winter months.  Last winter she shared this with me, and we
enjoyed it often for activities in the RV park where we both stayed. 

It's easy and who can beat that it makes A LOT???  It keeps well in the fridge for several weeks too...if it lasts that long! 

A great addition to your holiday season!

I love this recipe so much I added it to my recent cookbook! 


CROCKPOT CANDY

1 (20 ozs) pkg. white almond bark
1 (4 ozs) box German chocolate baking squares
1 (12 ozs) bag semi sweet chocolate chips 
1 (16 ozs) jar dry roasted peanuts
1 (16 ozs) jar unsalted dry roasted peanuts 

Turn crockpot on high.  Break almond bark into pieces and place in crockpot.  Break German chocolate baking squares on top of almond bark, then add semi sweet chocolate chips.  Place lid on crockpot. (Tip: Place a paper towel under lid to catch moisture) DO NOT STIR FOR FIRST HOUR. 

Then, turn crockpot on low.  Pour in the peanuts and stir. Place the lid on and stir candy every 15 minutes for the second hour.  Turn off crockpot.  Drop candy by tablespoonsful onto waxed paper and let cool until firm.  Store in airtight container.  Keeps well in refrigerator for weeks. 


Yield: about 30 - 40 pieces
