Crock Pot Candy

Made these for a potluck at work - it is super easy and pretty tasty.

I found most of the ingredients in the sizes listed below - if something was a little off from the Pinterest recipe, I just found the next closest size.

16 oz unsalted peanuts
16 oz salted peanuts
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
12 oz milk chocolate chips
24 oz peanut butter chips
2 lb white almond bark (aka vanilla candy coating)

  1. Layer ingredients in crock pot in the order listed.
  2. Turn crock pot on low & cover with lid.
  3. After 2 hours, remove lid and stir ingredients.
  4. Replace the lid and wait 45 minutes.
  5. Line cookie sheet with wax paper.
  6. Stir ingredients and spread candy onto wax paper.
  7. Allow candy to harden for at least an hour (I put it in the fridge).
  8. Break into pieces.
  9. Enjoy!

Cookie Dough Dip

Made this for New Years Eve, served with cinnamon graham crackers, and it was DELICIOUS!
I used regular chocolate chips which worked, but I think for dipping purposes that mini chocolate chips would be better.
I found the original recipe on Pinterest, but modified it slightly.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 C butter, softened
1 C powdered sugar
2 tbs brown sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla
2C mini chocolate chips

  1. Cream together butter and cream cheese.
  2. Combine all additional ingredients.
  3. Enjoy!
