Crock Pot Candies
I ran across this online today. Looks pretty simple and you could let it "cook" while you're decorating or wrapping presents or whatever.
1 jar(s) (16 oz.) dry roasted, unsalted peanuts
1 jar(s) (16 oz.) dry roasted, salted peanuts
1 pkg (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 oz sweetened German chocolate (green packaging), broken into pieces
3 lb (two 24 oz. pkgs.) white almond bark, broken into pieces [there are several different brands, you'll just have to use the brand found in your area. manufacturer's have lowered the ounces in some packaging, so use the equivalent of 3 lbs. (some packages of almond bark may have candy coating on the package)

Put ingredients into a 4 or 5-quart crockpot in the EXACT order as listed. Cover and cook on LOWEST setting [on your appliance] for 3 hours. DO NOT remove lid! Turn off and allow to cool slightly. Mixture will not be melted but will be soft. Mix thoroughly and drop by teaspoon size cookie dropper or a teaspoon onto wax paper. Let cool thoroughly. Makes approximately 150 - 170 pieces, depending, of course, on how large you make the pieces.

NOTE: This candy is made best by following the recipe to the letter. Make other variations and changes at your own risk, [for example, using pecans or almonds in place of peanuts; white chocolate chips instead of almond bark, etc.] as this is the voice of experience speaking. Please take into consideration that it may alter the quality of the finished product.

... in a world where I feel so small I can't stop thinking big!

RE: Crock Pot Candies
Looks good one I may have to try except substitute peanuts with almonds and take my chances on the recipe outcome. I attempted the crock pot cinnamon-sugared almonds( like the ones you can get at the mall or at stadiums). I was a 4 hour process, but they taste pretty close the the real thing.
