Crockpot Candy is one of the easiest holiday treats to make at Christmas. It is a combination of an assortment of chocolates with peanuts and almonds, topped with colorful sprinkles.
This Crockpot chocolate candy has quickly risen to one of the desserts I make the most around the holidays. I like that I can toss my ingredients into the slow cooker and let it do almost all of the work for me!
- Almond Bark
- Chocolate Chips
- White Chocolate Chips
How To Make Crockpot Candy
One of the things I love most about this is how easy it is to make. Just put all of your different chocolates in your slow cooker along with the nuts. Set the temperature to low and let it sit for an hour.
Stir the candy and then scoop spoonfuls into clusters on a parchment paper lined baking mat.
Cover in your favorite holiday sprinkles (I like to use at least two different kinds) and let them harden for about an hour.
Is This Trisha Yearwood Crockpot Candy?
No, this is not her exact recipe, but it is very similar, albeit a little better if I do say so myself! One of the main differences is that her recipes only call for peanuts and we add in almonds as well.
You can choose to make this custom however you like it. Ttry different kinds of nuts like pecans or chopped walnuts.
You could also add in other treats like coconut, M&M’s, or peanut butter chocolate chips.
Change up the look by switching from red and green Christmas sprinkles to blue and white snowflakes for a winter theme. Or pink and purple for a sugar plum fairy theme.
This is a really fun recipe to get creative with. Enjoy!
