saw this this a.m.    and i think she used    dark chocolate instead of the german chocolate
but it's all chocolate except for the peanuts



Ingredients

  • 2 pounds salted dry-roasted peanuts
  • 4 ounces German's sweet chocolate (about 4 squares)
  • One 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups)
  • 2 1/2 pounds white almond bark

Directions

Put the peanuts in the bottom of a 4-quart slow cooker. Layer the chocolate over the peanuts, beginning with the sweet chocolate, followed by the chocolate chips and then the almond bark. Set the temperature on low and cook for 3 hours. Do not stir the mixture.


After 3 hours, stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth. Drop the candy into cupcake pan liners using about 2 tablespoons per liner. Allow the candy to cool completely before removing the cupcake liners.

Nellie, that's the same recipe I posted before Christmas.  Just the directions are moved around.  Glad someone liked it enough to repost!

I saw this at Christmas also.
Has anyone made this?
I just can't imagine doing this in a slow cooker for 3 hours!
First leaving that much chocolate for 3 hours sounds a bit risky.  Also if it is just melting the chocolate wouldn't doing it in a double boiler be so much faster?
I would be interested if anyone has done it.

i think it's because in a crockpot        it doesn't need to be stirred until it's done
and it is a crockpot, not a slow-cooker which would probably not work
i don't have any white bark
i may try it with the chocolate bark  and let you know

I have always used the term Slow Cooker and Crock Pot as the same thing.  Crock Pot, the proper name for the one manufactured by Rival and Slow Cooker the name for all the other brands on the market.

Wow, that's a lot of chocolate!   I must have missed this recipe the first time around so my thanks to Nellie and Darla for sharing it with all of us.

I definately want to try, however I most likely will be omitting peanuts and add almonds and coconut.

I have made this a total of four different times....in my slow cooker/crockpot.  It is delicious...some people I know just cannot leave it alone!  It makes great Christmas gifts.  I put the pieces in a small tin container, put a nice ribbon around it, and everyone says they love it!  Not sure why the recipe calls for three hours.  In fact, I never questioned it....I just did it.  For one thing....it makes your house smell like a candy factory.  Be aware that it makes a lot of pieces, depending upon the size you want.  I usually use a tableware tablespoon, as opposed to a measuring tablespoon.  And, I usually get around 90 pieces.  Also beware, it doesn't last long once a person tastes the first piece!!

I might be inclined to just melt all the chocolate in the microwave, add the nuts, stir and be done with it.

90 pieces!!!!! I think I would have to cut the recipe in 1/4.  I knew that it would make a lot just from the volume listed in the recipe I just did not think about it really. 
Will have to be done only when I plan on giving most of it away.
