Crockpot Christmas Crack - this sweet and salty candy your friends and family will keep on asking you for more! Peanut Butter Chocolate dipped peanuts come together in the crock pot!
I'm getting started on my Holiday Baking early this year with Crockpot Christmas Crack. Here's a tip during the Holiday season. You can use your Crockpot as a double boiler to melt your candy. This recipe called for 2 hours on low in the slow cooker, and my slow cooker finished this recipe in less than 2 hours. In fact, I think the more the crockpot heated up, the faster all the chocolate was able to melt. I was able to mix everything pretty well in less than 1 hour. This is not a recipe where you can leave your house and do all your Christmas shopping. If you're baking cookies and need something quick to make, this is it!
This recipe is also one of those recipes where you open up the bags or jars of peanuts and chocolate and just dump everything in the crockpot and let the slow cooker do it's thang. Pretty easy peasy, maybe that's why they call it Crockpot Christmas Candy? It's easy to make and addicting! Going to put some of the candy into some gallon bags and keep them in the freezer until Christmas.Print

Yes I would wait until the candy has cooled and set completely. Then store them in a freezer bag.

Could you freeze the candy? Think it would last 1 week in the fridge? I want to make treats Sunday to have for christmas day.
I haven't tried this recipe with pecans yet. Hope it works well for you if you do try it.
