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.

What Do I Need To Make Crockpot Candy?

How To Make Crockpot Candy
Before we get into the nuts and bolts of this recipe, let’s talk about the 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.
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
How To Store Crockpot Candy

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.
