I got this recipe at a Relief Society Candy Recipe Exchange activity that I attended a couple of weeks ago. There were many delicious candies and recipes shared that evening, but this is the only recipe I brought home because it was the only one that I really thought I would make because it was so easy. I think I might be getting lazy, or just more realistic about the amount of work I am actually willing to put forth for something good to eat.
Crock Pot Peanut Clusters
16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
16 oounces white chocolate chips
16 ounces white almond bark
16 ounces dry roasted salted peanuts
16 ounces dry roasted unsalted peanuts
Place all ingredients in a slow cooker on low for 1 hours, stirring occasionally. When the chocolate is completely melted, use a spoon to drop small mounds on waxed paper. Let the mounds set up and store in air tight container in the fridge. Makes a ton! Well, not really a ton, but around 100 clusters.
For the salted peanuts, I used the dry roasted peanuts that you can get at Costco. These are very lightly salted and I think you could use two pounds of these peanuts instead of the unsalted and salted. If I make them again, I'm going to try this.
Like I said in my last post, I'm not a big fan of making the same thing over and over again for neighbors and friends, so I also made these simple homemade oreo cookies, this pumpkin bread, and a great simple bread recipe that I know I got from a blog a while ago, but I can't remember which one. And of course, there have been lots of extras for us that I've been enjoying a little too much in the last few days. Tis' the season, right? Enjoy!
