- Peanuts- lightly salted peanuts or dry roasted peanuts.
- Chocolate chips- semi sweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, or dark chocolate chips.
- Peanut butter- you can also use peanut butter chips.
- White chocolate bars or almond bark- broken up into pieces.
How To Make Crockpot Peanut Clusters
Step 1: Combine the ingredients. Add the roasted peanuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and white chocolate to your crockpot. Spread them out evenly over the bottom of the crockpot so they melt faster. Cover the pot with a lid and cook on low heat for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes to prevent the chocolate from burning.
Step 2: Make the clusters. Once your chocolate and all other ingredients are completely melted, give it a good stir to combine everything. Then, line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper. You'll need three baking sheets in total to portion out all of your chocolate-covered peanut candy. Use a cookie scoop or a tablespoon to scoop the clusters onto the baking sheet.
Step 3: Chill and serve. When all of your chocolate peanut clusters are formed, let them set in the fridge for 1 hour. Then serve in a bowl or keep them in the fridge until you're ready to enjoy.
If you have any leftovers or are making a big batch to share, these slow cooker peanut clusters store really well! Store the clusters in an airtight container with a layer of parchment paper between them, and they'll last at room temperature for 2-3 weeks.
You can also freeze peanut clusters really easily. I recommend letting them freeze on a parchment paper lined baking tray first, then transfer them to a freezer-safe bag or airtight container before storing. Your frozen peanut clusters will last up to 6 months.
