Bonnie's Story

Inspired by Donna Brown's wonderful peanut candy posted on this site. This recipe is a variation using pecans, coconut and chocolate and made into small bars. Tastes similar to a Nestle's Crunch Bar only richer. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I took a picture of the whole process from pan to cutting to the finished product. It turned out delicious! I hope you enjoy it! Thanks Donna!


bag, 16 ounces of pecan pieces
12 ounce bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
pounds (two 24 ounce packages) of almond bark broken into pieces
bar of 4 ounces of german chocolate
16 ounce bag of sweetened coconut

Directions Step-By-Step

Use a 4 or 5 quart crockpot. Put the ingredients in the exact order as follows:
1. Put the pecans in the bottom of the crockpot first.
2. Add the semi sweet chocolate chips.
3. Add the German chocolate broken into pieces.
4. Add the almond bark broken into pieces.
Put the lid on and cook on low 3 hours, do not remove the lid. Turn off and allow to cool slightly. Mixture will not be melted but will be soft. Mix thoroughly, add the coconut, mix until thoroughly combined. Pour out onto wax paper covered pizza pans or any pan with a lip. With the back of the wooden spoon, flatten the candy as flat as possible. Let it cool, then transfer it to the fridge. When it is hard, you can cut it. It will slip right out of the pan, peel the wax paper off it and cut into bars as shown in my picture.
Cook's tip: You are going to have crumbs, don't throw them away. I had almost a full cup of wonderful crumbs left. I put them in a small zip lock bag and set them in the freezer next to the ice cream. They are going to make a wonderful topping for ice cream! Enjoy!

    Wow this looks good. Donna, I'll let you know how the pecan crock pot candy turns out when I get a chance to make it. Bonnie, my family can't eat w/us tomorrow night b/c they're going caroling so I'll have to do your fried rice another time (shucks!).

    Donna & Bonnie, I'm apparently having trouble getting messages b/c when I came to JAP there were no messages, which was most unusual. I started looking at recipes & saw this one of Bonnie's and I have both of you as a favorite cook so Bonnie's posting should have showed up as a message. Know what I'm saying? Are you all having problems like this or is it just me?

    I'm having the same problem, Bea. No messages at all in the email or on the site.

    Sorry about that but I'm glad it's not my computer. Thanks, Donna.
