Crockpot Peanut Clusters

In our home we love creating simple and fun holiday treats like Santa hat rice Krispies and these crockpot peanut clusters! 

The great thing about this dessert recipe is it is as simple as open the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips dump them in the crockpot, add the peanuts, and stir. Once the chocolate is melted you are ready to make 80 pieces of delicious holiday treats to share with family and friends.

The best news of all? This recipe is totally adaptable! Switch out the type of nuts or add some other fantastic flavors! 

How to make Crockpot Peanut Clusters

  • Add all of your ingredients to your slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 1 – 1 ½ hours.  Stirring every 15 minutes while cooking.
  • Once completely melted give it a good stir to combine.
  • Drop a tablespoon full of melted chocolate mix onto wax paper. 
  • Add colored sprinkles if matching for a holiday or occasion.  
  • Allow to dry. Store in a cool place. 

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • To save even more time you can pre melt the chocolate and then add it to the crockpot. 
  • After you lay the clusters on wax paper, you can transfer them to the fridge to set if you want them to set faster. 
  • I use chocolate chips for this recipe, but you can use better quality chocolate if you choose. If you are using a bar of chocolate you will want to break it up into smaller pieces prior to adding to the crockpot. 
  • Be sure you use a dry roasted peanut. If you use other peanuts they will add water to the chocolate preventing it from setting. 
  • Melting chocolate needs to be done slowly. Do not cook on high, it can easily alter the flavor of the chocolate by heating it too quickly or becoming too hot. 
  • This recipe can be doubled. 

Storage

Once these candies are set you will want to store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. If your house gets too warm they will melt a bit, if this is the case you can place them in the fridge.

Freezer

If you don’t want to eat all your candy in one sitting you can store in a freezer-safe container in the freezer. These will last for up to 3 months when properly stored. 

Use Different Variations

This recipe is great how it is, but you can easily swap out the nuts. Try:

  • Pecans
  • Walnuts

The same goes for the chocolate. Try some different combinations. 

  • Use more white than semi sweet.
  • Substitute some dark chocolate for the milk chocolate. 
  • Use almond bark for a different flavor all together and add in some coconut! 
  • The possibilities are endless.
