Crock Pot Triple Chocolate Peanut Candy
Crock Pot Triple Chocolate Peanut Candy dessert recipe is the easiest way to make homemade candy for the holidays! For this sweet and salty treat, just dump everything in the slow cooker and watch the magic happen!
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 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.
- Spread the peanuts evenly on the bottom of crock pot/slow cooker; add other ingredients on top of the peanuts. Do not mix at this time.
- Cook on LOW setting for 1½ to 2 hours or until chocolate is fully melted. Stir until peanuts are evenly coated.
- Place rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper, add sprinkles on top (optional), and allow to set and cool.
