I Had No Clue You Could Make Candy In The Crock Pot! Shhh Don’t Tell The Kids!

Slow Cooker Candy Recipe

This candy-making recipe is cooked in a Crockpot! I had never made candy in a Crockpot prior to the recipe but I’m certainly glad I did. This chocolate peanut treat is perfect for almost every event, holiday, gathering, etc. I like to make a batch of them and keep them in my fridge, (although they disappear pretty quickly in my house!)

This Slow Cooker Candy Recipe is great for chocolate cravings, mid-day snacks, and desserts. This mouthwatering recipe is simple and a definite favorite in my house! I’m sure these would be great with other nuts aside from peanuts as well. Almonds and hazelnuts may be good alternatives to peanuts in these candies.

  • 34.5 ounces honey roasted dry roasted peanuts (I used planters)

  2. Cook for 1 hour on low temperature. Do not stir.
  3. After 1 hour stir mixture and continue to cook, stirring every 15-20 minutes for another hour (a total of 2 hours).
  4. Meanwhile line counter top or table with a long piece of parchment paper.
  5. Turn off crock pot. Use a 1 tablespoon scooper to scoop out candy from crock pot and onto parchment paper. Make sure candy is not touching. Top with favorite garnish.
