Tailgate Recipe: Crockpot Candy

This recipe will make you the hero of the tailgate, bowl game party, or holiday party - it's so easy to make and is a sweet treat everyone will enjoy. Prep the day before, let cool overnight, and it's ready to be packed up and go the next morning.

Crockpot Chocolate Candy

1 package dry roasted salted peanuts (16 oz.)
1 package unsalted dry roasted peanuts (16 oz.)
1 package semi-sweet chocolate bits (about 12 oz.)
1 German chocolate bar (4 oz.)
32 ounces white almond bark (I couldn't find white almond bark in my local grocery store, so I just used 1 to 2 packages of 6 oz. white chocolate baking squares - tasted just as good, if not better)

  1. With crockpot off, pour both packages of peanuts into the crockpot.
  2. Next add all of the other ingredients. Push some of the chocolate squares into the peanuts and towards the bottom.
  3. Cook in crockpot on the LOW setting for 2 hours. Check after an hour and go ahead and stir what has already melted into the peanuts. (I had to cook a little longer than 2 hours to ensure everything was good and melted - it depends on your crockpot.)

  5. Cover a few baking sheet pans with wax or parchment paper (pans are optional if you opt to use your countertop for cooling - see step 5). Next scoop out small spoonfuls of the melted peanut-chocolate goodness out of your crockpot and place on the paper covered baking sheets.

  7. Let the candy clusters cool - either on your counter top overnight, or stick in your fridge for faster cooling (ready in just a few hours).
  8. When cooled, remove candy clusters from wax paper, place on a plate and enjoy!
