Slow Cooker Chocolate Candy

slowcookercandies 012

This recipe intrigued me because I never had tried making candy in my crock pot before. I read some of the reviews on Food Network’s website and decided to change a few things. 1. Check the chocolate every hour and 2. I used only 1 pound of peanuts.

I learned that your crock pot can be a good way to temper chocolate. However, this recipe can be made in about 20 minutes on the stove top. I don’t have one of those fancy crock pots where you can set the timer to however long the recipe takes. I think it’s time to upgrade my crock pot. Mine only has 4 settings: Keep Warm, Low, High, and Off. Is there crock pots out there where you can set the temperature of it? Best Buy has a crock pot with 7 different settings on it for $80.00 and it had a timer.  That would be really nice to have.

The recipe states that this chocolate takes 3 hours to melt in the crock pot. That is WAY to long. My chocolate was done melting in an 1hr and 30 minutes. It’s a pretty easy recipe too, just chocolate and peanuts. Next time, I may try adding other ingredients to it or try different chocolate.
