How to make crock pot peanut clusters

Step 1: Place the cocktail peanuts on the bottom of a 6 quart slow cooker. You will need a full size 6 qt crock pot for this recipe, as the peanuts and chocolate will fill it almost to the top.

Step 2: Top the peanuts with the semi sweet chocolate chips, then the dark chocolate chips, then the milk chocolate chips.

Step 3: Place the white chocolate chips on top and cover with the slow cooker lid.

Step 4: Cook the chocolate peanuts on low for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes, until the chocolate is completely melted.

Step 5: Line baking sheets with wax paper. Use a mini cookie scoop or a spoon to drop chocolate covered peanuts onto the baking sheets.

You will need 2-3 baking sheets as this recipe makes around 60 peanut clusters. I found that 20 clusters would fit per baking sheet.

Step 6: Place the peanut clusters in the refrigerator until set.

How to Store

At room temperature: store peanut clusters in an airtight container at room temperature for around 1 week for best freshness.

In the refrigerator: store in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Let the peanut clusters sit out to soften for a few minutes before serving.
