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.

Some of my Christmas recipes are ones like this: simple and fun.  I love making Chocolate Christmas Tree Pretzels, Christmas Crack and Grinch Popcorn. My kids are big fan of these also.

  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Peanuts
  • Almonds
  • Butter
  • Sprinkles

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.

Candy Variations

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!

Beautiful Ideas and the crockpot candy was Great!!!
Thank You for Sharing:)5 stars

This candy is awesome. Goes together fast tastes great. I’ve been making it for years. Joyous won’t be disappointed I promise

This sounds so easy and good. I have some Andes chocolate chips I will use to give it a little mint flavor also.5 stars

These are great! I used what I had on hand. So I used 2 rows of white almond bark with the chocolate almond bark plus a bag of chocolate chips. The rest was the same. So easy to make! I’ve made it twice. The 2nd time I left off the sprinkles, since it was after Christmas.5 stars
