This is one of the easiest recipes that I make during the holiday season and everyone LOVES it! Be careful though... it is EXTREMELY ADDICTIVE!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This super easy candy recipe is delicious. The chocolate is smooth and creamy - it kind of tastes like a cross between a Reese's cup and a Snickers bar. This recipe makes a huge batch of candy. It would be great on the dessert table or packaged in tins as a festive holiday gift.

How To Make crock pot christmas crack

Test Kitchen Tips
Cooking time really depends on your slow cooker. In ours, the chocolate melted in a little over an hour and we stirred the mixture every 30 minutes. We suggest keeping an eye on it so it doesn't scorch.
  • Peanuts in a Crock Pot.
    Layer all ingredients except the bark in a large slow cooker (starting with the peanuts).
  • White almond bark placed on top of ingredients.
    Break apart the bark into chunks and place into the slow cooker as the last layer.
  • 3
    Turn the pot on low, cover with the lid, and leave to cook 1 hour.
  • Stirring ingredients in the Crock Pot.
    Remove the lid and stir to combine.
  • Replacing lid on the Crock Pot.
    Replace lid and cook another 30 minutes, keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn.
  • Spooning mixture onto wax paper.
    Stir again. Spoon mixture in small piles onto wax paper or non-stick aluminum foil.
  • Allowing candy to harden.
    Allow the candy to harden for at least 1 hour. Enjoy!
