FOOL PROOF Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Clusters are not only crazy delicious but are SO easy!  They make the best make ahead, stress free gifts!  This post also includes tips and tricks to make them successful every time!
Ingredients
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 2lbs. white almond bark
  • 12oz. QUALITY semi-sweet chocolate chipslike Ghirardelli
ADD LATER
  • 4oz. German baking chocolate barchopped (or milk chocolate)
  • 16oz. salted dry roasted peanuts
  • 16oz. cocktail peanuts
Garnish
  • coarse sea salt
Instructions
  1. Lightly spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add almond bark followed by semi-sweet chocolate chips to slow cooker. Cover the top of the slow cooker with a kitchen towel or paper towels before adding the lid. This will catch condensation that can drip onto the chocolate when you lift the lid to stir which can cause the chocolate to seize.
  3. Melt chocolate on LOW for 1 1/2-2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes, until completely melted. Add German chocolate and stir until completely melted (this will temper the chocolate). Add all of the peanuts and stir until evenly coated.
  4. Line your counter with a long row of parchment paper OR if gift giving, line with mini cupcake liners. Drop peanuts by the tablespoon onto parchment/liners. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired but DON’T wait until all the chocolate clusters are dropped before sprinkling with sea salt or the first few will have already hardened. Allow to set completely, approximately 45-60 minutes.
  5. Store the chocolate peanut clusters in a cool place in an airtight container, with rows separated by parchment paper.
Recipe Notes

*Many white almond bark packages come in 20 oz.   It is fine to use 40 oz. instead of 32 oz.

*If scorching or seizing occurs, mix in 2 tablespoons shortening to chocolate.
*The semi-sweet chocolate and German Chocolate can be replace with whatever chocolate you prefer but DO NOT replace the almond bark.
