This easy crockpot candy could not be easier! Lots of white chocolate, nuts, and pretzels are swirled together in this candy recipe.
Grab your containers and give some away, this makes a huge batch!
Every year I like to make dozens of Christmas treats. Part of the reason I do this is that I cannot narrow down my list of cookies; I love Christmas cookies and hate leaving anyone out. But the other reason I make so many treats is that I love giving them away.
We are definitely going to include this crockpot candy recipe in our gifts this year. This recipe is a fabulous no-bake treat. It is easy to assemble and makes a big batch; which is perfect for gift giving. This recipe is versatile too!
How To Make Crockpot Candy
Before we get into the nuts and bolts of this recipe, let’s talk about chocolate!
I used two pounds of white candy coating or white chocolate almond bark, a white chocolate bar and one bag of white chocolate chips.
You can play around with this, but it is important to use the chocolate candy coating, it has a great melting point and keeps all the chocolate smooth and creamy.
Place the chocolate candy melts and the remaining chocolate in the slow cooker, cover it and allow the chocolate to melt until smooth.
Then it gets fun! Stir in unsalted nuts and pretzel pieces. You could stop here, or you could add finely crushed peppermint, caramel bits (do not freeze the candy if you add caramel bits, the caramel may get too hard) or candy-coated pieces. Stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
When the candy is combined, using to spoons or a small cookies scoop, divide the mixture between mini cupcake liners or place a dollop directly onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper.
How To Store Crockpot Candy
Allow the candy to set completely before storing.
When ready, place the candy (with or without wrappers) in an airtight container. Candies will
Keep for 2 weeks on the counter.
Can You Freeze Crockpot Candy?
Crockpot candy freezes really well!
Once the candy is set, place the candy in an airtight container. I like to place a piece of wax paper between each layer so that once the candy thaws, they do not melt into each other.
Candies will freeze for up to 3 months. When needed, allow candies to thaw in the refrigerator,
This candy is great for gift giving during the holiday season, but there is no reason you can’t make this candy all year long. It is easy, fun, and totally adaptable!
