Ingredients

  • 2 pounds dry roasted peanuts salted or light salted
  • 2 pounds white almond bark May use candy "melts"
  • 1 pound semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
  • 4 ozs German milk chocolate bar

Instructions

  • Dump the peanuts into a medium to large crock pot (6-8 quart). Top with the rest of the ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours.
  • Mix well. Spoon heaping spoonfuls onto parchment paper. Try not to make them too big. It is candy not cookies.
  • Allow to cool for about 2 hours.

Notes

Pro Tips:

  1. Cook on low with cover on. Do not cook on high.
  2. You may use candy "melts" if unable to find almond bark.
  3. I like the German chocolate but if you must, substitute in more chocolate chips.
  4. I suggest a half recipe for most households.
  5. The serving size is about one tablespoon which is about one heaping kitchen teaspoon. Make them a little small.
  6. I like lightly salted nuts here, but full salt is ok. Some recipes call for a pound each of salted and unsalted.
