Serve This Chocolatey Slow-Cooker Candy for Every Festivity
Beyond slow-cooker cobblers, fudge, or fondue, one of our favorite confections to create is old-fashioned slow-cooker candy. With a rich chocolate base and fun candy mix-ins, these sweet dollops make for crowd-pleasing party fare and edible gifting. Here’s how it’s done.
Basic Slow-Cooker Candy
(Makes 45 pieces of chocolate)
- 5-6 cups chocolate base (like dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate, white chocolate, and/or white almond bark)
- 10 cups mix-ins (like toasted nuts (peanuts, cashews, walnuts, and pecans), M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces, toffee pieces, crushed peppermint, Oreos, marshmallows, pretzels, gummy worms, and/or Andes Candies)
- Toppings, for drizzling and sprinkling (like caramel drizzle, peanut butter drizzle, sea salt, and/or sprinkles)
1. Place your chocolate base in the slow cooker.
2. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours.
3. Then uncover and stir until smooth. Stir in mix-ins until fully coated.
4. Drop 1 to 2 tablespoons of the candy mixture into either a lined cupcake tin or parchment-paper-covered cookie sheet.
5. Sprinkle or drizzle toppings of your choice.
6. Place in refrigerator or freezer until completely hardened.
7. Remove from liner/parchment and serve (or store in an air-tight container).
