Candy in the crock pot?!? Yes, you heard (um, read) right! These deliciously mouthwatering morsels are very impressive while being embarrassingly easy... my kind of recipe! They would make a great "thank you" gift next week on May 3 for Teacher Appreciation Day AND really, what's a better way to say "thank you" than with chocolate? Even if you don't make these for Teacher Appreciation Day, you must make these. Enjoy :)
CROCK POT PEANUT CLUSTERS
2 lbs (36 oz) salted dry-roasted peanuts
4 oz (4 squares) German's sweet chocolate
1 12-oz package semisweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups)
2½ lbs white almond bark
Put the peanuts in the bottom of a 4-quart slow-cooker. Layer the chocolate over the peanuts, beginning with the sweet chocolate, followed by the chocolate chips, and then the almond bark. Set the temperature on low and cook for 3 hours. Do not stir the mixture.
After 3 hours, stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth. Drop the candy into cupcake pan liners, using about 2 tablespoons per liner. Allow the candy to cool completely before removing the cupcake liners. Makes 30 to 40 pieces.
