Transcript:How to Make Crockpot Chocolate CandyHi, I'm Stephanie Gallagher for About.com, and today, we're making crockpot chocolate candies.
Chocolate Candy IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 2 12 oz. packages white chocolate chips - it's important to use white chocolate, because it has a high fat content, and that will keep the other chocolates in this recipe from seizing up during cooking
- 1 4 oz. semisweet chocolate bar - don't substitute a dark chocolate for the semisweet, because if it has too high of a cocoa content, it won't melt properly
- 1 12 oz. package semisweet chocolate chips
- 2-1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts
- 1 cup roasted almonds
- 1 cup raisins
Cooking the Chocolate CandyPlace the white chocolate chips in the slow cooker first. Add the chocolate bar, breaking it up a little to help it melt. And then add the semisweet chocolate chips. Pour the peanuts and almonds on top. There's no need to stir now. Just cover and cook on low for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, give it a good stir, and as you can see, the white chocolate has started to melt nicely. We want to see the rest of the chocolate melt evenly, too, so we'll continue cooking for another half hour, stirring every 15 minutes. And each time, you'll see the chocolate gets a little more melted. When the chocolate is completely melted like this, line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Drop the candy onto the baking sheet with a cookie scoop or tablespoon. You'll end up needing a few baking sheets for this. Now let the candy cool at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Eat the candy right away or store in an airtight container.
