Easy Crock Pot Chocolate Candy Recipe

So, I was browsing through my mom’s recipe cards and saw this doozy.

Candy in the crock?  Intrigued, I was.

I mean, using my crock pot for more than stew or pulled pork?  Interesting.

I honestly I don’t remember my mother ever making candy in the slow cooker, but I am sure she had the best of intentions.  I mean, have you seen MY pin boards?  Good intentions must be genetic.

So I decided to take it to google, the almighty dream-crusher, to see if my mom was an genius recipe inventor.  Well.  Apparently crock pot candy is a whole thing.

But since it was new to me, I thought it might be new to you too.

 

Let’s discuss Crock Pot Candy, kay?

How to Make Crock Pot Candies

Honestly, it couldn’t be easier…
Just chop up a few different types of chocolate and throw them in the crock pot.

I started, though, with some chopped hazelnuts on the bottom..just for a little crunch…and also I *think* the nuts might help prevent the chocolate from burning on the bottom…I could be wrong, though.

Next I put in some semi-sweet chips…

Topped those off white candy melts…

Then I let it sit on low for about 3 hours.
I used my 4 quart Crock Pot which is all old-timey looking…

After 3 hours, I stirred it all together…

Here’s where I took matters into my own hands. Since I used hazelnuts, I thought it might be nice to swirl in some Nutella. Why not?

Then I lined a mini muffin tin with cupcake liners and dropped it by heaping tablespoon sized portions into the liners…

Then I added some toffee bits. For good health.

Aren’t they pretty?

And then, since I can’t leave well enough alone I decided to make some more in big cupcake liners. And then maybe also drop an entire Reese’s Cup in there too…

Sometimes it’s important to go there.
And THEN I thought, well, these might be good salted up…so I added a pretzel and some sea salt. Yum!

They set up pretty quickly and then you’ll have fancy candies.
That you made in your least-fancy appliance.

I’m allergic to chocolate, but I can have white chocolate. I’d love to try this out with a substitute for the dark chocolate. 😉

the crockpot candy looks awesome! I am wondering if you need to spray the crockpot with PAM first?

I just made these but used peanuts in the first batch. In the second batch I used cashews and raisins. Both batches were very tasty. Gone real quick too! No need to spray the crockpot first. Everything comes out super easy. I used a small cookie scoop to get a constant size and my batches came out to 185 the first batch and 179 the second.

Hi. I love this easy yummy recipe but my candy after 3 hours didn’t set up. It’s more like a choc sauce with nuts. I don’t what could’ve went wrong. Chera

These look so good, am going to make for gifts at our nd family Christmas party. I don’t have the Minnie muffin pans, I guess it would get pretty messy without them right? Can I double up on this in the crockpot or just stick to original? How many servings does it make?
Thanks again for the great ideas. And have a great Thanksgiving.

I had to try this since it looked so easy and guess what… it was!!! It is also delicious even though I only had one small bag of semi sweet chocolate chips and could not find any white chocolate but the blocks. Next time I will be using milk chocolate as I really don’t like the taste of seme sweet even mixed with 3 boxes of white and nuts. I used walnuts, almonds and cashew pieces on the bottom. I didn’t fill my paper cups and got 62 candies instead of 48. I also didn’t have enough of the small… Read more »

Sweet! I never thought of making candy in mine. Your’s looks so good, that I just want to take a spoon and dig in! Ta heck with the paper wrappers! I want a big ol spoonfull of ooey goey warm chocolate! Hehehe…I confess, though I prolly should not, I eat cake batter too. My hubby and I both do while imagining our mothers having fits if they could see us. Anyhow…thanks again for the wonderful idea.

Omigosh! First, let me just say that those look fabulous, and I really should have eaten breakfast before getting on the computer because now all I want is CHOCOLATE! Second, just reading through this cracked me up! I love your writing style! I just discovered you through the BlogHerAd side post on my blog. So glad I did! You’ve got a new follower. 🙂

OK, so I thought the title of this post was “crack pot candy” at first and I could not wait to see what you were up to. Crock pot is good, too! I’ve never HEARD of this! And I love that you found the recipe in your mom’s recipe cards! ?

bridget {bake at 350}

Gah! That ? at the end is supposed to be a heart.

I laughed non-stop reading this. Guess I needed to chuckle more than I thought….” I added, then I added, then I thought and added, …”
You oughta have a t.v show and drop this. Who needs Rachel Ray when we can have the SWEETS QUEEN??
A treat is a treat is a treat and I haven’t seen a thing here in over a year, that I wouldn’t eat more than 10 of. 🙂

I’m asking this as nicely as possible, but wouldn’t it be easier to just melt the chocolate on the stovetop and stir in the nuts? It would save a whole bunch of time! I don’t want to wait 3 hours for candy and since it appears that the only thing the crock pot does is melt the chocolate, I am just guessing it would be easier to melt it normally. Do you think that would that work similarly?

Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings

yum! guess who’s making their own crock pot candy??

Megan

These ideas look delicious! Thanks so much for sharing. Megan
