Ingredients for the Crockpot Candy
Head over to the store to grab the ingredients needed to make the Crockpot Candy. If you regularly bake with different chocolate types, you might have these tasty ingredients available at home. If not, you can easily find them at your grocery store.
- White Chocolate Almond Bark – The white chocolate almond bar is just one of several chocolates you will add to your crockpot to prepare this delicious candy. It has such a sweet and creamy taste that you will love.
- Chocolate Almond Bark – Just like white chocolate, the traditional chocolate almond bark gets added to the crockpot to create the perfect chocolatey blend.
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips – You cannot forget the semi-sweet chocolate chips that add that dark chocolate taste to the candy.
- Salted Peanuts – The salted peanuts are the perfect addition to the chocolate, providing a slightly salty crunch.
- Holiday Sprinkles – Add some of your favorite holiday sprinkles to make the Crock Pot Candy look more festive!
These are truly the only ingredients you will need. Of course, you can add a few extra items to the mix, but it is optional.
What to Add to Your Crockpot Candy
If you want to add a bit more to your candy than the ingredients in this recipe, you can do that. Some people like to add raisins, craisins, and other types of nuts to the mix, including almonds and macadamias. If you like the taste of coconut, you can add shredded pieces of coconut to your chocolate blend.
And, if you like peanut butter, do not hesitate to add a few teaspoons of your favorite kind. There are plenty of peanut butter options that go good with this chocolate, including creamy peanut butter and extra crunchy peanut butter. Marshmallows are also a great addition to this recipe.
How to Freeze the Christms Candy
Do you want to prepare your recipe for Crockpot Candy and save it for a particular date and time? If so, knowing how to freeze it is important. You should place your Crock-Pot Candy in a container on top of parchment paper.
The parchment paper will keep the candy from getting stuck to the food storage container. If you have layers of candy to put into the container, separate each layer with a parchment paper sheet. You can place the box full of Crock Pot Candy in the freezer and keep it in there for up to three months at a time.
When you do not need to freeze it, you can leave the candy in a food storage container and either keep it in one of your cabinets in the kitchen or store it in the fridge to keep it from potentially melting. I usually do not need to store this candy for too long because my family loves to devour it as soon as they see that I have made it.
