Well with a name like that, you know this has to be a good recipe! (Once again, thank you, Pinterest. Originally from the website Just a Pinch.) I made these during Thanksgiving week and they were a hit with the Elves and a hit with the company that we had staying with us. So I can say they were tried and approved by a lot of people last week. Quick and easy to make, these are great for sharing with neighbors, friends and co-workers.
1 (16 oz) jar of salted peanuts
1 (16 oz) jar of unsalted peanuts (I subbed in unsalted cashews instead)
1 (12 oz) bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (12 0z) bag of milk chocolate chips
2 (10 oz) bags of peanut butter chips
2 (1 lb.) packages of white almond bark or vanilla candy coating
Put peanuts in the bottom of the crockpot and then add all of the chocolate on top. Turn the crockpot on low (covered) for 2 hours. Remove the lid and stir well. Cook for another 30 minutes and stir again. Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper and allow to harden for an hour or more.
I hope your weekend includes time with your knitting, time with some chocolate, and time with some friends. Have a good one!
That looks delicious! Dangerous, but delicious. I will definitely be making this for Christmas. Thanks for posting it!
We made this just last week, and it was fantastic! Planning on making it for lots of parties in the future. Easy and delicious.
I will definitely be trying this (although I will have to try making it in a double boiler since I don’t have a crock pot).
I made these last year, and Christmas Crack is indeed a good name for them!! So good and so easy, they are on my list to make again this year.
Well that does sound good! I’m with Angelica though- no crock pot here so will use double boiler!!!! You find good recipes on Pinterest, Sheri! Thanks!
OMG! I am soooooo making this!
Hmmm I’m thinking some mint chocolate chips mixed in would be really tasty too.
I’m not sure.. I like mint chocolate, but I don’t know how it would be with the nuts.
What would happen if I added mini marshmallows after melting and right before spooning them onto a cookie sheet? I will have to try and see if it doesn’t make them into Rocky Road Crack.
I was wondering the same thing. I hope if you do it, you’ll be back with the results!
I tried this with the last two cups or so of my batch. I added a small handful of marshmallows at a time, just coated the marshmallow and then dropped it on the wax paper. If I added too many marshmallows and didn’t work fast enough, the marshmallows started to melt a little.
They turned out fine, but were overly sweet for me.
What did you cut them with? Butter? It does sound good, but if it makes it too sweet… I don’t want it to turn to fudge.
I have been looking for almond bark. Has anyone seen it anywhere? All I can find is the candy coating which is not what one of my older favorite recipes calls for.
I made the crockpot christms crack treats today and they are so good!! It makes so many I’ll have plenty to share with family and friends. Thanks for the recipe.
Listen, you have absolutely ruined my diet!! This crockpot candy is really delicious but makes a HUGE batch (126 LARGE pieces to be exact) and I have got no will power at all. I hope all my friends are going to enjoy their dose of extra calories too…
I’m making this as I type. Thanks for the idea!
I have three school age kids with 11 teachers between them all. This will be a great present supplement!! Whew. 🙂
Can this candy be frozen ?
I haven’t tried freezing it before, so I’m not sure, Terri!
