  • 2 lbs white almond bark (might be labeled as white candy coating) , broken or chopped into smaller squares
  • 12 oz bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz bar German sweet chocolate, broken or chopped into smaller squares
  • 32 oz dry roasted or cocktail peanuts
  • holiday sprinkles (optional)


  • If desired, spray slow cooker insert lightly with non-stick cooking spray.  Add chopped almond bark, chocolate chips and German chocolate.
  • Place a clean, dry kitchen towel over the top of the slow cooker, then place lid on top of that.  Cook on HIGH for 1 hour.  Reduce heat to LOW, and cook 1 more hour (or until fully melted), stirring every 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove lid and towel (be careful not to let any condensation drip into melted chocolate), and add peanuts, stirring well to combine.
  • Line several baking sheets with wax paper.  Drop candy mixture by spoonfuls onto wax paper (or use small cookie scoop).  If using sprinkles, sprinkle onto clusters before they harden.  
  • Refrigerate (if possible) 30 minutes to 1 hour, until set.  If unable to refrigerate, let stand on counter at room temperature until set.  Store in a cool place in an airtight container.
