This super easy crock pot recipe for chocolate-peanut clusters is ideal for last minute gift giving.
Over the past two days the children and I have made hundreds of goodies to pass out to our neighbors and friends. We chose 6 fairly simple recipes, doubled and quadrupled them and then put an assortment of each on cheery red plates to pass out.
This recipe was a last minute addition, thanks to a friend at church who mentioned that she made chocolate nut clusters in her slow cooker, perfect for when your oven is already in use.
Sadie (7) and Savannah (5) were able to whip out two batches of these all by themselves.
2 pounds dry roasted peanuts (I used one pound salted and one pound unsalted)
48 oz white bark
4 oz sweet German chocolate
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
Dump the peanuts into your crock pot and then add the remaining ingredients (no need to stir). Cover and cook on low for 3 hours. Then stir and drop by teaspoon full onto wax paper and allow to cool.
Yes, it really is that easy. One batch yielded over 100 clusters.
