"A friend gave me this easy candy recipe, and now I make it every Christmas. The mixtures of different chocolates make for a great milk chocolate flavor. The best part is it's made in the slow cooker. Just put in your ingredients and let your cooker do the hard work. These little candies make a great gift-giving idea."

Everone enjoys receiving these in their Christmas candy boxes! I do use my chocolate of choice, but have to say that I love mixing white chocolate with dark chocolate, as it gives the chocolate a lighter appearance and a very creamy consistancy, which is delicious. I usually use nuts, and whatever else I may have lurking around in the pantry (the possibilities are endless), and spoon them into small candy cups for a prettier presentation. I do like to use this method with the crockpot, because it melts the chocolate nice and slow and evenly, but if I'm short on time (which is usually the case, lol) I'll just use the microwave and get the same result (just be careful not to overheat the chocolate). This also makes a great project to do with the kids! :)
Really DIDN'T enjoy this
My Grandma had a friend who for years made this particular treat for us every Christmas as one of the treats on her candy trays. I looked forward to this every year as it was one of my favorite "candies". It may not look appealing but it's darn tasty and a heck of a lot cheaper than those expensive peanut clusters that you can get from fancy chocolate sellers. GREAT fun to make with little hands and tints well with food dyes for any holiday you'd like to make these to share. NOTE: You can speed up the process by melting the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 40 seconds until it's the consistancy you need. Then add the peanuts and spoon out by tablespoons onto your waxed paper. It goes much quicker that way.
Easy easy easy great for lots of holiday presents
Very easy to make - the hardest part is spooning out the candies to cool. It makes a big batch and is very tasty, too! Perfect for holiday gatherings!
Really Really easy for those of us on the go! I took these to a cookie exchange and they were a hit. I just followed the directions. Mine made more than the 60 it says. Will make again!
This recipe was a Blast to make, and even more fun to serve!
My only suggestion is that you make them small. These are very sweet treats, and a little goes a long ways!
I LOVE REINDEER POOP ITS SO DELISHOUS
