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 Vanilla Bark

1-package KRAFT Caramel BITS

Directions: Pour peanuts into large Crock-pot; add chips and 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!

    Tara, I have sent your cooking website to all my friends and family on my side. However, I have had some replys that say they cannot find any place on the website where they can just print out the receipe only. I have checked it out myself and cannot find a place either. Are we all missing something?

    De, Glad you stopped by and are enjoying the website and sharing with your friends! I love to see that page view counter going up because that means that people are finding it beneficial. If you are talking about printing just the text of the recipe then I don’t know of a way to do that currently without cutting and pasting into Word. I’m relatively new to web publishing and although I find Wordpress a very easy to use interface I don’t have a way to do that now. I’m going to have to make some changes in the near future so I’ll keep that in mind. You can, however, click on the title of each post and go to a page that shows only that recipe with pictures. They can be multiple pages, however, and get kind of long when printing. I’ll be thinking about how we can make printing work better. Again, thanks for visiting and sharing with your friends. -Richard
