This crockpot chocolate candy recipe is like no other! It is crunchy, sweet, rich, and chocolatey. The crockpot makes this recipe so easy, in fact, it could be too easy! You might find yourself making this recipe all the time!
Costco is my weakness. It is kind of like Target for me, I walk in needing only a few things and somehow I walk out a couple of hundred dollars poorer.
While the home goods and the wine selection is pretty stellar, naturally it’s the food that breaks me. I’m always tempted by the giant bags of snacks and candies. It’s pretty much a guarantee that I am going to go home with a bunch of food I don’t need.
This crockpot chocolate candy came about after one of my Costco shopping trips.
I bought a small bag of chocolate toffee candy clusters which were made with chocolate, pretzels, graham crackers, and toffee pieces. I innocently sampled one from the bag, fell in love, and before long the whole bag was gone. I singlehandedly ate an entire bag of chocolate candy.
So, I decided to make my own.
Ingredients Used For Crockpot Chocolate Candy Recipe
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips – Since this is one of the most pronounced flavors, make sure you use good quality chocolate chips.
German Chocolate – This is a bar found in the baking aisle (Baker’s is the most common brand). This type of chocolate is on the sweeter side, it balances out the semi-sweet chocolate.
White Chocolate Melting Wafers – This adds a smooth silky texture to your mixture. This is sometimes referred to as chocolate candy coating or almond bark.
Toffee Bars – I used Heath Bars for this. You could use the toffee chips, however, the smaller toffee bits can melt too easily into the chocolate mixture.
Pretzels – Use any kind you like.
Graham Crackers – I used store brand plain crackers. You can use any flavor you like or have in your pantry. If you use a sugar-coated cracker, it will make your candies grainy.
