Step 1. First, add the peanuts and almond bark to the crock pot. I like to use crock pot liners to make clean up easy. 

Mixture melted in slow cooker.

Step 2. Next, cover and melt chocolate on low for 1 hour. Stir this every 15-20 minutes to make sure the chocolate does not burn on the bottom of the slow cooker.

Expert Tips

  • Line Baking Sheets – I highly recommend lining the baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.  You will be so glad you did this once it is time to clean up. 
  • Silicone Mats – You can skip the baking sheet if you prefer and just use silicone mats or line countertop with the wax paper. If you don’t plan to refrigerate them, this will work fine.
  • Easter Baskets – If you are preparing Easter baskets for the kids, add these crockpot peanut clusters for festive treats. The perfect holiday gift.

Yes, you can freeze peanut clusters. This is the perfect candy to prepare ahead of time. Make sure that the chocolate is solidify before placing in the freezer. When you are ready to thaw, place in the refrigerator.

    5 stars
    Can I substitute something else for the peanuts. Some of the kids have peanut allergies.

    1. Carrie says:

      Any type of nut would work great in this recipe if they’re not allergic to another type. Also, I think Rice Krispies would work great too but I haven’t tried them yet.
