I got this recipe recently, had to share it for it's simplicity alone. Follow direction to the word for perfect candy. Recipe makes a large amount of candy. Good for fund raisers, gifting in little baskets.

Categories: Candies, Chocolate, Quick & Easy
Collections: Member's Choice, Chocolate...

Ingredients
1 16 oz. jar dry roasted, unsalted peanuts
1 16 oz. jar dry roasted, salted peanuts
1 12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bar (4 ozs.) sweetened german chocolate (green packaging), broken into pieces
3 lbs. (two 24 oz. pkgs.) white almond bark, broken into pieces [there are several different brands, you'll just have to use the brand found in your area. manufacturer's have lowered the ounces in some packaging, so use the equivlaent of 3 lbs.


Donna's Notes:
This is my daughter's recipe that she makes for fund raisers, church, to give away on trays, etc. because it's so good and it makes a lot. An older man at her church named Mr. Bud makes it a lot and gave her the recipe, so they all call it
Mr. Bud Candy.

Comments from the Test Kitchen:

Yummy candy from the crock pot? Doesn't get much better than that! It's never been easier to indulge your sweet tooth... and I couldn't be happier about it.

Directions
1
Put ingredients into a 4 or 5-quart crockpot in EXACT order as listed. Cover and cook on LOWEST setting [on your appliance] for 3 hours. DO NOT remove lid! Turn off and allow to cool slightly. Mixture will not be melted but will be soft. Mix thoroughly and drop by teaspoon size cookie dropper or a teaspoon onto wax paper. Let cool thoroughly. Makes approximately 150 - 170 pieces.

NOTE: This candy is made best by following the recipe to the letter. Make other variations and changes at your own risk, [for example, using pecans or almonds in place of peanuts; white chocolate chips instead of almond bark, etc.] as this is the voice of experience speaking. Please take into consideration that it may alter the quality of the finished product. Thank you and LOL!

**NOTE: There seems to be discrepencies in the terms crockpot and slow cooker. This recipe is for a crockpot which, when on low, will only melt the ingredients. A slow cooker will get hotter and start to cook the ingredients, thus resulting in an inferior product. Please be aware of what kind of appliance you have. It seems the older "crockpot" works best. There have been some who have burned their ingredients because their appliance is too hot. The makers and manufacturers of these appliances seem to interchange the description of their appliances calling slow cookers crockpots. It seems that Rival owns the name crockpot, therefore, others can't use the name crockpot, they are slow cookers. It's very confusing, but slow cookers, indeed, cook hotter, which could result in burning of this recipe. There are many discussions and explanations of this subject within the comments.

***NOTE I've been asked to add this note. If your crockpot appliance is below 275 watts, you should not have any problem with the candy burning if you follow the ingredients and the directions, however, all crockpots are different, so please pay attention to your cooking process. Look on the bottom of your appliance to see the wattage.
