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
YI Walmart carries white almond bark, year-round. Others stores only seasonal, during Christmas holiday. 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
AWFU:!!!! Nuts burned, chocolate burned. I knew it was a bad idea to put that much money into a crockpot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow!! Good to know. In Northwest Kansas, we need all the hints we can get for finding ingredients. Thank you so much for sharing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
