How To Make Crockpot Candy
STEP ONE – Place all the white chocolate in a crockpot that has been set on low. Heat chocolate for 1-½ hours until melted, stirring often.
STEP TWO – Stir in peanuts and pretzels, candy until incorporated.
STEP THREE -Drop by spoonfuls into mini baking cups. Allow candy to set for at least an hour.
*If chocolate becomes thick, stir in a teaspoon of vegetable oil
Want an easier cleanup? Use the plastic crockpot liners to line the inside of your slow cooker before adding in the chocolate and ingredients. This will make cleanup a breeze because you can just throw the bag away when you’re done. It doesn’t get any better than this!
What Kind of Chocolate Should I Use?
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.
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.

Make sure it’s on LOW heat. If your slow cooker runs hot, you may wish to do this on the warm setting but you need the chocolate to melt on the lowest heat setting possible. If you don’t, it can seize up and become unusable.
Want different chocolate? Go for it! Feel free to use milk or semi-sweet chocolate instead of white chocolate for a different change in flavor and appearance.
