Easter Crockpot Candy (With Video)


White Chocolate Easter Crockpot Candy Clusters are a simple, impressive 3-ingredient homemade Easter candy that everyone will be raving about! An easy recipe that you layer in the slow cooker, stir and scoop. It is so easy it almost makes itself.

I love quick and easy treats and I especially love my crockpot. When they come together it is pure magic! This simple 3-ingredient recipe is creamy, crunchy, peanutty and incredibly gorgeous. What treats do you make in your slow cooker?

A few years ago I created my first ever crockpot candy recipe and it has gone wild on our site ever since. So, this past Christmas I decided to make a variation. And so, Crockpot Chocolate and Caramel Pecan Clusters (AKA Turtles) were born. Truly genius and amazing, if I must say so myself!

With spring upon us, I was up for a new magnificent creation and I have to say, I have outdone myself. This recipe is amazing with rich vanilla candy coated peanuts topped with festive candy and sprinkles. You are going to love them!

Crockpot Candy is the easiest and most impressive homemade candy ever.  A rich chocolaty, peanutty 4-ingredient recipe that you simply toss in the slow cooker, stir a few times and scoop it out. It doesn't get much easier than that!


No-Bake Avalanche Cookies are a simple make-at-home copycat recipe with just 5 ingredients. Imagine creamy peanut butter fudge speckled with Rice Krispies, fluffy marshmallows and chocolate chips. It's the ultimate treat. A creamy, fudgy, crunchy, peanut buttery treat that has the right touch of chocolate and is perfectly sweet!


Crockpot Turtles Candy is an incredibly simple and impressive candy. A rich chocolaty recipe with perfectly roasted pecans and creamy caramel that you simply dump ingredients into your slow cooker, stir and scoop. Then garnish and gift (or serve).  It doesn't get much easier than that!


Easter Crockpot Candy
MAKES 12 dozen (1 Tbsp) Candies  |  ACTIVE TIME 30 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 2 Hours 30 Minutes

34.5 ounces honey roasted dry roasted peanuts (I used planters)
48 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating (Almond Bark or CandiQuik)
11.4 ounces M&M Milk Chocolate Plain
optional garnish: seasonal sprinkles (I used jimmies and nonpareils)

Layer peanuts and then vanilla candy coating into the crockpot (I used a 5 quart). Cover. Cook for 1 hour on low temperature without lifting the lid. After 1 hour, stir the mixture and continue to cook, stirring every 15-20 minutes for another hour (a total of 2 hours).

Meanwhile, line 3 cookie sheets with Silpat mats or line countertop or table with a long piece of parchment paper.

Turn off crockpot. Reserve 1/2 cup M&M's.

When you are ready to scoop, pour remaining M&M's into the crockpot and fold in.

Working quickly, use a 1 tablespoon scooper to portion out candy from crockpot and onto parchment paper. Make sure candy is not touching. Once entire cookie sheet is scooped (before candy dries) top with 1 M&M and sprinkles.

Allow the candy to cool completely.

Serve and enjoy!
