You can use all peanuts or a mixture of nuts. I used a combination of peanuts and cashews. I was going to use all cashews but then I realized how expensive that would be. Pecans would also be delicious.

A couple of hours on LOW in the slow cooker melts the chocolate. Scoop them out with a large spoon or use an ice cream scoop for more uniform clusters.

Place them on parchment lined baking sheets and either refrigerate for about 45 minutes or let sit at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours to set. Melt some white chocolate almond bark to drizzle over them to fancy them up some.

  1. I’ve done something like this for at least 3 years in a row. The only difference is, all peanuts, no white chocolate, plus half a bag or so of mini marshmallows. Add the marshmallows at the end, slowly stir until they’re covered in chocolate, keep on stirring until they just barely start to melt. Rocky road clusters!

  2. I making these right now…I’ll let you know how they turn out. I’m using cocktail peanuts instead of dry-roasted…I hope they’ll be good.

  3. This is so cool, Christin! Making any kind of candy always feels amazing and to do it like this with the crockpot is such an easy, fun idea. I know these are addictingly good.

  4. Christin, you are too much!

    Make candy? In a crock pot? Gotta luv it! This is such an easy recipe. I’m gonna try it – but I gotta go with pecans in this one. (BTW: I wish I’d seen this before spending so much “sweet tooth” money at Walgreen’s last night (lol)

    Thanks for sharing …

  5. I’ve never thought to use my crockpot for this type of recipe! I love it! And I like that this makes a big batch – so I can keep some for myself and give some away πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!
