Crock Pot Easter Candy is going to become an instant family favorite. This crockpot candy recipe is crazy simple and loaded with a sweet and salty flavor in every bite.
Crock Pot Easter Candy
White almond bark, salty peanuts, shimmery candy eggs and of course a drizzle of pretty colored chocolate and sprinkles. Talk about one gorgeous dessert that is crazy simple to make.
What Is The Difference Between Candy Melts and Almond Bark
You will find I use both in this recipe. Candy melts are colored candy wafers. They are almost the same as they both contain cocoa are meant for dipping candies, molding and coating.
You can’t use almond bark with food coloring as it will not blend so buying colored candy melts allows you to have the colored drizzle on this candy.
Can I Use Chocolate Almond Bark Instead of White
Sure, you are welcome to use chocolate. I went with white as I felt it offered a really pretty look for Easter. But, if you want to feel free to do regular chocolate and then add the drizzles of color and sprinkles on top to add a nice color for spring and the Easter holiday.
You could easily call these a homemade peanut cluster!
How to Make Crockpot Candy
Start by greasing the inside of your crockpot or place a crockpot liner in. Then you will break up and drop in your almond bark.
Toss in your nuts, and mix well. Cover and cook on low for around 1 hour. Come check on the mixture give it a good stir, and then cook for around 30 minutes or an hour longer until it is fully melted.
Lay out some parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spoon a tablespoon of Easter candy onto the sheet. Then melt up your candy melts and toss in bags, and drizzle over the candy. Then add sprinkles and top with a Cadbury egg if you would like.
Chill in the fridge to help speed up the setting up of the chocolate. Then serve and enjoy.
