Peanut Cluster Candy (Slow Cooker)

· 1 (16 ounce) package dry roasted salted peanuts
· 1 (16 ounce) package unsalted dry roasted peanuts
· 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate bits
· 1 (4 ounce) German chocolate bars
· 32 ounces white almond bark


  1. Put peanuts in bottom of slow cooker; add other ingredients.
  2. Cook on low setting for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until chocolate has melted. 
  3. To avoid burning the nuts and/or the chocolate, stir first after about 15-20 minutes, and then several times after, about every 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Place rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper and allow to cool.

Note: New slow cookers cook much hotter than older models, even on low. If you are using a new model, you may want to try cooking this on warm and for a longer time to avoid burning.

Optional Add-Ins: Optional add-ins: Can also add in 1 to 2 cups of any crunchy dry cereal - Cheerios, Chex, Wheaties, Kix, Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes, or choose your favorite cereal, or other embellishments such as raisins, chopped dried fruit, dried berries or cranberries, flaked coconut, crushed candy canes, Heath bits, or any combination. You can also substitute or use a combination of nuts - chopped pecans, chopped cashews, chopped macadamia nuts, toasted chopped or sliced almonds are all good.
