  • 2.5 quart or larger slow cooker


  • 16 ounces lightly salted roasted peanuts
  • 10 ounces 60% cocoa baking chocolate
  • 4 ounces 48% cocoa baking chocolate
  • 4 ounces white baking chocolate
  • 10 ounces candy melts Vanilla Flavored
  • holiday sprinkles


  • Assemble. In a 2.5 quart or larger slow cooker, add the peanuts, and layer in all the chocolate, breaking up the chocolate bars as you go.
  • Cook. Cook on LOW heat for 1 hour, stir and cook for another 1 ½ hours on LOW heat and stir. Turn off the heat and let sit for 30 minutes covered.
  • Drop. Lay out parchment paper or wax paper and 2 large baking sheets. Drop by 2 tablespoon-sized portions, leaving at least a ½ inch space between each one. Repeat until all the mixture has been used. Sprinkle on the sprinkles while the candies are still wet. You should get about 35-40 candies. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator to set for at least 1 hour, until set.


The blend of chocolates in this recipe gives it a great flavor.  Try to stick to the ingredients as written: you can find them in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips.
