Crockpot Candy

Someone on one of my online quilt groups posted a recipe for Crockpot Candy. It sounded simple and tasty, so I picked up the extra ingredients I needed and cooked up a batch last night.
Typically, I did not follow the recipe perfectly and here is my adaptation.

1lb.almond bark
1lb.Girradelli semi sweet chocolate pieces.
16ozs.jar salted peanuts
16ozs. jar unsalted peanuts
Melt all together in large crockpot on low, stirring occasionally for two hours.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax paper & allow to set.
This recipe made about eleven dozen pieces of yummy candy, I recommend it highly.
The original recipe called for 1.5 lbs. of almond bark, I didn't find anything by that name but I did find a white bark that seemed like the same thing.
I plan to make this again and next time I will use pecans or almonds and some craisins, sound good?
I will report back on the success.

This sounds delicious and easy to do!! Crock pot candy... why didn't I ever think of that? I bet you can make fudge in there too!

Yum! Thanks for the recipe! I'm always looking for something 'new' to add to my Christmas baking list for the neighbors. :o)

PS...Almond bark and white bark are the same. I believe they just have different names depending on which party of the country you may live. :o)

Oh...I LOVE chocolate.....I should try this, too. The idea of adding raisins or craisins sounds terrific.
