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. Three kinds of chocolate can’t be wrong.
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.

I need to get on board the crockpot candy train. This looks incredibly easy so I need to do it already! Thanks for sharing such an amazing recipe!
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! 🙂
Good things it makes a huge batch – otherwise I probably wouldn’t share 😉
I have never tried candy in the slow cooker but I am so intrigued! These look so good! Happy holidays!!

This looks delicious and sounds so fun to make! I’ve seen this method and have wanted to try it. I’m glad it turns out so well! I also love a big-batch recipe that makes enough for gifting and plenty to stow away to eat ourselves. : )

I am so into the slow cooker candy craze! It’s so easy and awesome. These look great 🙂
Oh my gosh, I love these! Slow Cooker candy sounds amazing! I would love to have a box of these for Christmas!
Looks amazing! Would that be 32 ounces of white chocolate almond bark and 32 ounces of white chocolate melts (discs) or one or the other?
One or the other! Sorry!
