Angie's notes for this recipe:
This is one of the easiest recipes that I make during the holiday season, and everyone LOVES it! Be careful a certain drug (crack), it is EXTREMELY ADDICTIVE! ;-)

Layer all ingredients in a large crockpot (starting with peanuts). Turn the pot on low, cover with lid, and leave sitting for 2 hours. Then, remove lid and stir to combine. Replace lid and leave sitting for another 30 minutes. Stir again and then spoon mixture on to wax paper or non-stick aluminum foil. Allow to harden for at least 1 hour. Enjoy!

Great name ! Sparked my curiosity and people need to lighten up and have a sense of humor life's too short.

First off, this is a wonderful recipe, that makes nearly seven pounds of the most delicious peanut clusters I've ever had, a candy that has been around since humanity fist discovered peanuts.
But the debate that rages on in the comments section is egregious to me. Folks, the term "crack" was coopted by media and drug pushers to describe a product. That product has a real name, but "Crack" is the nickname. That does not mean it's the only reason the work "crack" exists. The etymology of the word "crack" (as an adjective, and the reason it was coopted for the drug) is because it means "very good," or "original" as in "He's a crack shot," or " She cracked a funny joke," or even "This is crack cocaine, and your heart will -literally- burst, it's so good." When you use the word "crack" as a noun to label something that is very good, you're doing it right. But mostly, I am simply dumbfounded that anyone would believe that presenting peanut clusters with names implying they are excrement would somehow make them more palatable. Look,if you don't like the implications of calling it crack, don't do so, but maybe you should think twice about giving your neighbor a can of "poop," when you could just call them "peanut clusters."
