I have been wanting to make Crock Pot Candy for the longest time! Chocolate peanut clusters are one of my favorite treats, so I figured I’d try making candy clusters in my slow cooker! Slow Cooker Dessert ideas are easier than you think!
Crock Pot Candy Nut Clusters
Well, I only had a brick of the white vanilla almond bark, which I just call white chocolate and I didn’t have any peanuts. But I did have cashews and macadamia nuts. Even better! Real white chocolate can be used, but it’s going to be more expensive. You can also use chocolate chips and make these Slow Cooker Chocolate Peanut Clusters. YUM!
I was so excited that I dumped everything in and then realized I didn’t grease the crock with butter before. It makes clean up a lot easier. Those crockpot liners would be great for making Crock Pot Candy Recipes.

- 5 or 6 quart Crock Pot. This one is only $29.99!
- 2 large bricks of the chocolate or white almond bark. Or you can use 2 packages of candy melts, or even 2 packages white chocolate chips.
- Nuts – Use your favorite.
- parchment paper.
Just like the photo above I just dumped it all in. Set it on low.
After about an hour, stir. If all the larger chunks have melted, then you’re ready to start spooning! If you still see parts of the candy that haven’t melted, let it go for another 30 minutes or so.
Once it’s all melted, use a teaspoon to scoop up and drop onto the parchment paper. Let it sit for a couple of hours until it’s completely set.
If you want to get fancy, you could always melt chocolate chips and drizzle across the tops. Or use any color of the candy melts for something fun.
Package up a few for a quick gift. Use one of my printable gift tags to complete the gift.
