On this edition of “food that has changed my life”: Crock Pot Triple Chocolate Peanut Candy.  OK, that was a bit dramatic, but candy made in the slow cooker is my best food discovery of the year. Let me warn you that this stuff is very addicting!  This candy has three kinds of chocolate in it. Wrong? So right.

This recipe makes a ginormous batch and is great for giving away as gifts or to add to your holiday dessert trays. It is such a simple thing to make and really is a no brainer. I thought I must have been skipping a step somewhere because it just seemed too good to be true – especially when I took my first bite and died and went to heaven! People will marvel over a dessert that took basically zero effort to make. That is a win/win situation in my book.

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

I made my candy pieces a decent size and got about 70-75 candies out of it. Feel free to use any nut of your choosing as this recipe is very versatile. You can even cut the recipe in half and still have a ton of candy. I’m sure this would work wonderfully with almonds or cashews, as well! They really taste like a snickers bar without the caramel (and, trust me, you won’t miss the caramel here). Of course, I had to add sprinkles to the top. Had to. Can’t help it.

    Oh, you’ve gone and done it again! These look incredible, Ashley! I love a good chocolate-covered peanut…and these pretty much look perfect. The fact that they came out of the slow cooker really just takes these to a whole new level, too. Forget neighbor gifts…these bad boys are all mine! 🙂
