I've never made candy before and my slow cooker is new to me as well. This recipe was wonderful as written and the entire family ate them as if they'd never seen candy before. I'll be making this again.  A lot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Here is how to fix this recipe.  I used a 6-7 quart slow cooker and placed a slow cooker liner in the bottom.  I cut the recipe in half and used chocolate almond bark.  With a larger slow cooker you can see when the chocolate is starting to melt.  I only let it cook for half the time. You don't have to spray the cupcake liners.  You just have to work fast to remove all the candy before it starts to set. The liner also makes for easy cleanup. I'm giving this recipe only two stars because of the instructions.   item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would challenge TYearwood to make these candies following the directions given us.  This was the biggest fail  I have ever had.  Won't be trying any other of her recipes for fear they won't be as shown on her show. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this this morning and it certainly out perfect. Kris did you use dry roasted peanuts?  How the peanuts were cooked would make a big difference. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not happy with this one and I LOVE CHOCOLATE I just tried making the slow cooker Chocolate Candies, and was so excited about it...epic FAIL!!!!!  I remember when I was watching your show you said that the peanuts would smell like they were burning, but not to worry because they really were not burning, WELL guess what Trisha, they were burning... GRRRR!!  Now instead of my house smelling like a wonderful Christmas wonderland....it reeks of burnt peanuts:(((  I think the crock pot is trashed too!!  Don't think I will be trying this one again!! Oh well, Merry Christmas!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this recipe today with exact ingredients (except I only had 1 pkg almond bark so instead of the second one,  I used 12 oz white chocolate chips). And I used dry roasted nuts, then about 3 1/2-4 hours in the crock pot. It's just GREAT! Such good chocolate flavor and the nuts were super crunchy. Will keep this recipe for years to come. Thank you, Tricia.<br /> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. I used the dry roasted peanuts. One pound salted and one pound not. I shook the peanuts in a colander to get rid of the little pieces. 2 1/2 hours is perfect. I get asked to make all the time. Not just for the holidays. Great for weddings too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The written recipe is WRONG!  Watch the video and listen to Trisha say use ROASTED SALTED PEANUTS!  Do not use the DRY roasted peanuts as written in the recipe online.  Huge difference for me.  Dry roasted peanuts have a gritty grainy texture and, to me, the regular roasted salted peanuts have more oil content in them and they actually roast in the crockpot instead of burn.  I also cut my time down to 1 1/2 hours instead of the suggested 3 hour cooking time.  Using the correct peanuts and cut down on your cooking time will really make a difference.  I get asked every single Christmas for these chocolately nuggets of goodness.  Super super easy to make a ton of candy in no time at all Ü item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this several times and it turned out perfect each time. The only difference is I used a 6 qt cooker and only cooked it for 2 1/2 hours. I also used mini cupcake liners....the perfect size as this is a rich dessert. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this candy to the exact recipe except.I used a 6 quart slow cooker.  It was a disaster.   The peanuts burned on the bottom and the chocolate did not melt smooth.  Not quite sure what happened but, what a waste of time and money on all that yummy chocolate &amp; peanuts.  Very dissappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was a little nervous about making these after reading the reviews about the peanuts burning but decided to try them anyway. I followed the recipe to the letter except I used a 6 cup slow cooker and set it on warm for 2 1/2 hours.  The chocolate melted perfectly! I also used candy cups and a tartlet pan instead of a cup cake pan because I wanted them smaller.  Plan to use them as a little box of candy for the neighbors for the holidays. Thanks Trish for an easy and delicious recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the candy today and it did not taste as sweet as I thought it would.  Some of the peanuts did burn.  Trying to think of something to pour on the top of them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I will definitely do this recipe again, only I used lightly salted peanuts which gave it the right amount of saltiness. I used a double boiler rather than Crock-Pot. Turned out beautiful and delicious! Otherwise, it was just the right amount of sweetness. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe.  I, too, checked the size of my crockpot.  Mine look more like peanut clusters and that is GREAT.  I added some vanilla extract as I like it with chocolate.  This will become a tradition at Christmas now.  BTW, I used a cookie (ice cream type) scoop and it worked great.   item not reviewed by moderator and published

<p>This recipe was a great way to find out that my new Crock Pot (brand) slow cooker is defective. I've used it for chicken and roast but hadn't noticed that one end was very much hotter than the other.  At two hours, the peanuts on the hot end were incinerated, while the other end was fine.  Also, the chocolate that had touched the bad end was scorched while the other wasn't.  I'll take it back to Costco and try again with my daughter's older, reliable CrockPot.  </p> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made this today and it turned out awesome!!!. Thank you Trisha for another great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome. Had no troubles using my 6 qt Rival crockpot. Bought ingredients @ Aldis. Their lightly salted dry roasted peanuts were perfect in this. Proportions were spot on....peanut to chocolate ratio is perfect. Gotta give these away before i eat too many! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was amazing!  I read the reviews about scorching.  I did not have a 4 quart slow cooker--I have 2 quart, a casserole slow cooker, and a 6 quart.  I used the 6 quart. I cooked it on low for 1 1/2 hours and then turned it to "keep warm" for another hour as I knew the layers were thinner than a 4 quart.  Perfect! Great Christmas presents.  Love these. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a good basic chocolate mixture for peanuts, pecans, or walnuts or dipping ritz crackers that you've smeared with peanut butter, then placed on wax papper to cool, I do add a little coconut oil for this with my chocolate, when I'm dipping cookies or candy. I don't know why people are going crazy with crockpots. I don't trust them for my candy making. I always take a heated proof bowl and place over boiling water and don't let bowl touch water. This is the full proof way. I love this mixture of chocolates for my candy making. Thanks for Sharing. I also coated my peanut butter ball recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Be aware there are many crockpots out there and they do not all cook the same way.  My pot is 40 years old and is a true crock, heavily constructed.  New crocks can burn food even on the low setting.  Consider melting in the microwave instead if you have a "new" crockpot (less than 20 years old).  Great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed directions perfectly and my peanuts scorched. Ruined the whole pot. Bitterly disappointed.  item not reviewed by moderator and published

I'm an impatient cook so I found a way to make it much quicker and also revised the recipe to suit my family's taste.  I melt 12 ounces of almond bark and 12 ounces of dark chocolate chips in the microwave using a large glass bowl.  When melted I stir in a 1 pound jar of lightly salted peanuts and drop small spoonfuls on wax paper.  Turns out perfect every time and so much faster.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this recipe all the time! Never had a problem with nuts burning, I always do on low for 3 hrs. I give it as gifts for holidays and special occasions. Everyone loves it. I call it "crack" candy because it's so addicting, one piece is never enough.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
This came out perfect the first time I made it. I made it for my 60th birthday party. The candy was a hit with my family. I sent the candy as gifts to them for Christmas. So delicious!!!!<br /> item not reviewed by moderator and published
I put the crock pot on LOW. I had it in the size it said. And the nuts burnt completely!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this for 2 years in a row now and I really think the trick is time frame.  I only let it "cook" for 2 hours and that works just fine.  After two hours the chocolates are all melty and ready to go.  This makes a ton of candy, I work with at least 100 people and put them in the breakroom for everyone to enjoy.  I use the small candy size "cupcake" type liners from Michaels and the smaller bites set up nicely.  I find the regular cupcake liners are a bit too big since the candy is so decadent.  Super easy, super good, I highly recommend making once a year! item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading the reviews I set my crockpot on the warm setting for 3 hours and the chocolate melted perfectly no burnt mess. Delicious candy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Third attempt at this. First time my cooker was too small and it burnt the peanuts and I couldn't stir it properly. Last year with a bigger crockpot it was better.  Now this year for some reason it was starting to burn the nuts again after only 2 hours so I stirred it and realized the chocolate had already seized. Can't fix that much cocoa butter and expect it to temper so I formed the candy anyway but it's a failure due to the texture.  I'm done with this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to play with recipes, so the first time I made this, I thought it was way too sweet.  I modified the recipe by using a bag of dark chocolate chips, half a bar of German sweet chocolate, half a bar of semi-sweet chocolate squares, and 8 bars (1 pound) of the Almond Bark.  Cutting back on the almond bark made the candy thicker so that it would mound.  Drop it onto parchment paper so it doesn't stick.  It filled FOUR large cookie sheets, so get ready to find places for it to cool!  I've sold over $60 worth of it for charity.  (I packed it in one pound decorative containers and it sold like hotcakes!)  Absolutely delicious!  item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best and simplest candy recipe ever. Don't know why so many comments on the peanuts and/or chocolate burning. Maybe they don't know how to read a recipe and place their crock pot on "low". We prefer pecans instead of peanuts but both are really yummy. Most people think they are eating candy from See's.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
The dry roasted nuts don't belong in chocolate.  Really want garlic, paprika and celery in your chocolate?  Use Spanish for candy is a law. Or should be anyway. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this chocolate numerous times. It's always a big hit and it has never burned. After the first batch, I switched to mini-muffin pans. You will get about 100 pieces which is great for making gift baskets. Also, everyone seems to like the smaller size.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
To those who have "burnt" problems, your issue must be the crockpot. Have made these multiple times in different crockpots without any problems. Do NOT exceed the 3 hour cooking time. If you want a thinner candy, drop by spoonfuls on parchment paper. Don't move till completely set. Awsome candy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am so disappointed. I followed the directions exactly and my peanuts burned to a crisp. The ingredients are really expensive too. It looked delicious on TV. I've never had an issue with my crock pot before. I'm so sad. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We made this today it's so good my kid love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Started making this candy last year. I couldn't find white almond bark last year, so made it with regular chocolate almond bark. A real hit! This year I was able to locate white almond bark. Still delicious, but I think I'll go back to using the regular chocolate almond bark next time. This stuff disappears. I used the small candy wrappers (look like small cupcake liners) and I could only get 1 tablespoon of candy in each one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the directions to the letter. My peanuts started to burn and the chocolate dried out. I had to throw the whole batch out. I might try this again only set my crockpot to warm instead of low. item not reviewed by moderator and published
ViHall I followed the recipe the 1st time but I had a 6 qt and the recipe was 4 qt. Peanuts burned and dumped everything. Bought all ingredients again and cut time to 1 1/2 hr, slow cooker on low, started smelling peanuts getting too hot. Dumped everything upside down on a piece of foil for picking out burned nuts, and mixed everything on the foil. Bought mini-muffin papers and used a smaller cookie scooper. This worked great. When I make this recipe again, I will add another package of semisweet Chocolate Chips. I do not know if the failure was in the different size slow cookers but it tastes great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Like many others I saw the episode and just went for it without reading reviews (which I usually do). Burnt nuts, burnt chocolate, house smells, waste of money. I knew it was going to happen but out of respect I followed the recipe. I won't do that again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made this last night. After reading all the reviews, I cooked mine for 90 mins. then turned the cooker off and let it set for about 30 mins. The only ingredient I changed was the peanuts for roasted and salted almonds. My grandson has a peanut allergy, but he can eat almonds. I left the almonds whole, but next time I will roughly chop them. I ran out of liner papers toward the end, so I spread the remaining mixture on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. When set, I broke it into pieces (as I ate it). Merry Christmas! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I ALWAYS read the reviews on recipes, but I watched the episode and it looked great. Instead, I, too, wound up with burnt peanuts and a lot of money down the drain. I'm going to try to salvage some of it, and I'll try the Bourbon to see if it helps. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to echo the others reviews below. I followed the directions exactly and ended up with black, scorched peanuts. I managed to salvage about half of it but I'm very disappointed with this recipe. Sorry Trisha! item not reviewed by moderator and published

The 2 1/2 lbs of white chocolate seems like a lot to me. To the people who have made this recipe did you use that much white almond bark or white chocolate? The almond bark I bought comes in a 1 1/1 lb. package. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These were fabulous and so easy to make. I halved the recipe because I was using the mini liners, made 48 mini candies. It only took a little over an hour for the candy to melt (after reading other reviews, I knew to check the crock pot after an hour). I did add craisins after the chocolate melted, great add-in! These were a huge hit and success. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy to make, the only challenge was finding Almond Bark; apparently unheard of in central California. So I used a White Candy Bark that I found (the store only carries at the Holidays), and it turned out fine. I think next time I'll skip the crock pot liner, that made it hard to mix and I ended up wasting more than I would have in the "bare" crockpot. They were a smashing success at all three events I took them to, and had several requests for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made these last night in my 6qt crockpot. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. Although the ingredients cost a bit it's worth it for the amount it makes. I was able to give gift bags to 3 offices and still had enough left to take to a party and was even able to leave a few for the hubby to enjoy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made one half of the recipe last night and it was super easy. But I think you could avoid using the Baker's German Chocolate altogether as it was rather pricey and really added nothing more to this recipe. I would call these "Peanut Clusters" because that's what they are - peanuts in chocolate and no distinguishing between "sweet" chocolate, semi-sweet and mixing in the white bark. Might be able to just use milk chocolate chips and add the white bark to lighten the chocolate flavor a bit and stir in peanuts. I think salted virginia peanuts would give it more of a peanut/salty flavor than the dry roasted ones did. Okay recipe and I didn't buy the liners but used my mini tart/muffin pan and made these smaller for easier handling and a better size than a big hunk of chocolate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this today. I only made half a batch, just to see how I would like it. They came out great. Super easy to make. I just followed the directions. I even left the house to run errands and everything was still fine. Plan on making more this weekend. My family and friends love them. Thanks!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made these and they were not only REALLY easy but REALLY good. I used everything as directed except I used milk chocolate chips instead semi-sweet one, personal preference. I had difficulty finding the white almond bark but after googling saw they were available at Walmart. I also used silicone cupcake liners which made removing the finished candy easier. Thanks Trisha for a yummy gift. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wish I had read the reviews before I spent so much money on these ingredients. Turned out burnt and awful and I only cooked it for 2 and a half hours on low. So disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Being from the south I think Trisha is great. But this one is a complete swing and a miss! Like one of the other reviews it looked like a cinch. But I wound up with burnt peanuts and crock pot. The instructions should read warm setting not low and start stirring after an hour and a half. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A few of the previous reviews have knocked this method for being unnecessary. Yes, you could melt your chocolate over a double boiler. Here's the thing, if you're trying to bake several treats over a weekend for a holiday, or party, this is one of them you won't have to hover over. That's a plus in my book. I did this with my 4 year old grandson. I didn't have to worry he'd get burned, or get water in the chocolate. He was able to stir the chocolate for me, and help spoon it into cups. There was no rush to get all the chocolate out before it hardened, either, because the crockpot kept it warm. Everyone loved the end result, and we had a great afternoon, with a lesson in patience thrown in for good measure! I'll be making them again, soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
made this for my husband and the office, and it was a big hit..the only thing I did differently was put on warm setting...absolutely delicious and easy item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'll probably get flamed for this, but I haven't made this recipe, and don't plan to. It just seems like it would be a big waste of time. The chocolate doesn't have to "cook", it just all needs to melt together. You can get the same result in a lot less time using a double boiler or a microwave to melt the chocolates together. Since there are so many different kinds of slow cookers/crock pots, all have different temperature settings at warm, low, high, etc. I feel bad for the ones that tried this and it burned, even though they followed the recipe. Don't get me wrong, slow cookers are awesome, I use mine at least once a week. But for making something like this, not so much. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was hesitate to make this after I read the reviews, however, I did proceed with the plan of making them. Boy! Was I glad I did! It was the most easiest, delicious chocolate dessert I made and it was a big hit with everyone! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read the reviews first and it turned out wonderfully delicious. I had my slow cooker on low but checked and stirred the mixture every 30 minutes for 3 hours. I added unsalted macadamia nuts not peanuts, mini caramel pieces, along with the vanilla bark and choco chips. Creamy and smooth. Makes 2 dozen candies and I froze 1/2 dozen. Definitely will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was soooo sad to buy everything, follow directions exactly only to find all my ingredients burnt. I wasted almost $20.00 on this. I think low is too high and should be set to warm. I even watched the video when it started to smell like it was burning a bit and the video says you will smell that but it's just the peanuts roasting. They were burning in mine.....completely black and all was ruined. :( item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read the reviews before attempting this. I have one of those 6qt. oval slow cookers. I cooked it on the "warm" setting (NOT "low") for 3 hours and the consistency was perfect and did not burn. Alternatively, I think the "low" setting would work too, but would NOT cook it longer than about 1 1/2 hours on that setting. If you cannot find the almond bark, you could substitute white chocolate in either block or disk shapes. Adding salt is not necessary if you use salted peanuts. I also mixed in some cashews and cut back on the peanuts. YUMMY! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I read all the reviews first before I decided to give this a try. I have an oval shaped slow cooker that I believe is 6 quarts. I halved the recipe and used chopped pecans instead of peanuts. The 1lbs of chopped pecans was too much for half of the chocolate required for the recipe( meaning I had more pecans than chocolate) and I only set it for an hour and half. The end result was so good. That combination of chocolate is so flavorful I will definitely be making this again using different combinations of nuts and maybe stirring in some caramel bites or toffee pieces. 5 stars item not reviewed by moderator and published

Oh, Mama! This was good. I never even heard of almond bark before seeing Trisha make this, I couldn't wait to try it. I've made it 3 times since I first saw it 2 months ago, have gone through about 5 lbs of almond bark. Made 1/4 of the recipe in my 1.5 qt crockpot. Did full recipe in 6 qt crockpot this weekend, no problems with either slow cooker, except maybe should have gone a little longer on the 6 qt batch. By the time I could barely smell the nuts, 3 hours was up. I did improvise -- mixed nuts in the house but no peanuts. Chopped them very coarsely. So good! The full recipe really makes a lot of candy -- plenty for a party or for gifts for a lot of people. Yumm! I must have made smaller pieces, I got a lot more than 30-40. Probably make nice gift boxes for @ 10 people or so. I had to work fast with the full recipe amount, to get the candy into portions before I had one big lump in the crockpot. Yumm! Will be making more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! Came out just perfect! No burning. Very easy to make. Rich creamy peanut clusters. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not sure why others have experienced the peanuts burning, but with my old, ceramic lined crockpot on low it worked fine. I added the ingredients, set the timer for 3 hours and didn't touch it until the timer went off. Just like using a microwave or stove, you can't use high temperatures to melt chocolate. I can't say that the flavor was better by using the 3 different types of chocolate, but i can see using this method to make other chocolate candy, including almond bark. item not reviewed by moderator and published

When I made mine, I used a smaller crockpot (maybe like a four quart or so size) and put it on low and only cooked it for about 1-1/2 hours. I can't imagine if you were to stir in while in the process of melting that it would affect it since it's all blended together anyway before you spoon it out. If you're worried about the peanuts burning, stir the mixture up and just turn it off if everything is melted. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Last night up til midnight - burnt to a crisp - slow cooker on low - think it burned at hour 1.5. Only setting below that is warm. Should I have used warm setting? I'm trying again. Pastry will not beat me. Can we just stir the stuff at an hour - why does it matter? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this for 2 years and it's never burned. Followed the directions, except used party nuts (that was what I had on hand) instead of dry roasted and and they turned out great. I think the oil on the nuts help keep them from burning. I didn't stir until the time was up. My crock pot is the large programmable one and I used low as it calls for. Also used mini cupcakes pans and liners since they are so sweet and it made plenty to share. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought the exact thing when I read the recipe. Seems completely unnecessary to use a slow cooker for this recipe. I suppose the intent is to make it so you can just dump everything in the slow cooker and walk away for 3 hours, but obviously it only works for the people with a specific slow cooker. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this with the almonds and added a tsp. of kosher salt (not iodized) and they were great! Really like the sweet-salty taste! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe calls for dry roasted peanuts but it looks like she is using cocktail peanuts on the show. Can you clarify this for me? item not reviewed by moderator and published
