Peanut Crock Pot Candy Clusters
When you’ve had a taste of this delectable confection you won’t believe how simple it is. You’ll be amazed how it always comes out & never fails.
1 – One pound jar of Lightly Salted Dry Roasted Peanuts
1 – One pound jar of Unsalted Dry Roasted Peanuts
1 – 12 oz. Pack Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 – 12 oz. Pack Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips
1 – One pound pack of White Chocolate Bark
1-package KRAFT Caramel BITS
Directions: Pour peanuts into large Crock-pot; add chips and white chocolate bark. Cover and turn on low setting. Now, go polish your car, or read a book. Come back in an hour or so. Stir with a large spoon; coating all the peanuts. Turn off heat before adding caramel bits and stir slightly to mix bits. Use a cookie dough scoop (2 oz) to form individual clusters on wax paper. Work quickly before mixture begins to harden.
This is a generous recipe and you will have a gracious plenty. I had about 80 clusters and bagged 10-12 clusters in clear plastic gift bags, then tied them with pretty ribbon. They can also be stored in Zip-Lock bags or plastic containers, but don’t expect it to last very long because each morsel is filled with a wonderful taste of chocolate and is chocked full of peanuts. Enjoy!
