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.

  1. 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. 😉

    1. 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.
