With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to test out this recipe I found for Crock Pot Candy. The instructions were very specific that the ingredients and process be followed exactly as written, but after looking at 3 different stores, I couldn’t find almond bark and ended up using Candiquik as a replacement (Google said I could!) And guess what, that candy turned out great!!
Here is what you do:
1 16oz jar roasted, unsalted peanuts
1 16oz jar roasted, salted peanuts
1 12oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bar (4ozs.) sweetened german chocolate (green packaging), broken into pieces
3 lbs. (two 24oz pkgs.) white almond bark, broken into pieces. (I used Candiquik)
1. Put ingredients into a 4 or 5-quart crockpot in EXACT order as listed. Cover and cook on LOWEST setting for 3 hours. DO NOT remove lid! Turn off and allow to cool slightly. Mixture will not be melted but will be soft.
2. Mix thoroughly and drop by teaspoon size cookie dropper or a teaspoon onto wax paper (I used Reynolds Non-stick foil.)
3. Let cool thoroughly. Makes approximately 150 – 170 pieces.
