Ingredients

  • 2 pounds white almond bark
  • 4 ounces Baker's German Chocolate Bar
  • 12 ounces Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 24 ounces Dry roasted peanuts

Instructions

  • Place crock pot liner in crock.
  • Add almond bark to crock in as even of a layer as possible. Sprinkle additional chocolate evenly on top.
  • Finally, add peanuts in an even layer.
  • Turn on high for 45 minutes to 1 hour and do not stir.
  • Turn down to low. Stir every 15 minutes until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Drop by spoonful onto wax paper and cool.

Notes

  • Chocolate melts in about 45 minutes on high and about an hour on low in my crock pot, but appliances will vary so keep a close eye on the clusters the first time trying this recipe.
  • Use a slow cooker liner to make clean-up a breeze!
  • Break chunks of almond bark into 2 to 4 pieces and spread pieces as evenly as possible in the crock.  Stacking is acceptable if necessary.
  • Spread other chocolate out evenly across crock pot
  • Use a scoop to create a more uniform shape if that's important to you
  • Will take 2-3 hours to set-up
  • Don't plan to move wax paper until candy is set up
  • I like to line cookie sheets with wax paper, so I can move them if needed
