Easter Crockpot Candy

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.

Easter Crockpot Candy

This recipe is amazing with rich vanilla candy coated peanuts topped with festive candy and sprinkles. You are going to love them!

Helpful Tips:

  • You can make this recipe with Candy Quick, Almond Bark (not actually made with almonds), vanilla candy melts and even white chocolate in this recipe. I have tried them all and we have loved every one.
  • You can use two spoons to drop the candy onto your parchment paper but using a tablespoon scooper is my preferred method. It assures all of the candy will be the same size and it is easier and less messy.

What you will need:

  • Vanilla Candy Coating – You can use Candy Quick, Almond Bark (not actually made with almonds), vanilla candy melts and even white chocolate in this recipe.
  • 4-6 Quart Slow Cooker This is my favorite. 
  • 1 Tablespoon ScooperThis is one of my favorite kitchen tools. It is perfect for candy making, meatballs and so many more recipes.
  • Crockpot Liners – I never use them because I wash the crock when it is still a little warm and the candy comes right out, but if you are worries about the cleanup, these are foolproof.
  • Parchment Paper-

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Instructions
 

  • Layer peanuts and then vanilla candy coating into a 5-quart crockpot. Cover with lid and cook on Low for 1 hour without lifting the lid.
    After 1 hour, remove the lid and stir the mixture. Cover again 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 the 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 or Silpat. Make sure candy clusters are not touching.
    Once the entire cookie sheet is full (before candy dries) top each candy with 1 M&M and sprinkles.
  • Allow the candy to cool completely.

    1. Try lining your crock pot with a Slow Cooker bag, and then just toss the bag when it's cleanup time.

    2. I made two batches because I am taking them to the church tomorrow for Easter. I used a liner on the first batch. It is very difficult to stir the chocolate peanuts together the bag slips. The second batch I did not use a bag and it was so much easier to stir. I recommend not using the bag.Cleanup is basically soaking your crockpot in some warm soapy water and the spoon that you stirred with for 5 minutes wash it with some soap and rinse it out not hard to clean it all

    1. I think white and milk chocolate taste the same. And yes I will ise regular white chocolate from the baking aisle.

  1. I wonder if you could substitute almonds or cherrios or something other than peanuts. Can't eat them.

    1. Yes you can make this in the microwave,just melt the chocolate as package says then take out ,pour peanuts in bowl mix well add 1/2 bag of m&m in ,spread or drop spoon fills on to wax paper then add the rest of m&m to mixture lightly pressing them into mixture I also do this with pretzel sticks,and peanuts and the white chocolate its Paula Deen's recipe

    1. I'm in the process of making this. I would think that you would NOT have to do it in the crockpot, but it does melt the white chocolate nicely without worrying about just the right temperature. I also wondered if you really would have to cook it 2 hours. I'm using plain peanuts rather than honey roasted, because I think it's going to be plenty sweet without adding honey roasted.

    1. The recipe says you add them right before you are ready to scoop. The reserved ones are to put one on top of each candy after you scoop them and while still warm.

    2. After the white candy is melted with the roasted peanuts and well mixed, turn off the crock pot and mix 3/4 of bag of m&M's.

    3. Looks like you fold them in right before you're ready to scoop! Got my crock pot on and recipe started! I'm so excited for this treat! I'm donating a lot of it for a pet store bake sale!

  2. The directions and video show that after 2 hours of cook time (white chocolate and peanuts only) stirring after the first hour, you then fold in the M&M's at the very end. Then scoop onto slipat mat. Working quickly before the candy hardens, add the reserved M&M candy or sprinkles as a decorative garnish.

  3. I made these yesterday. Mixture was way too hot. Some M&M's melted when folded it. But still delish. Will definitely make them again.

  4. After the 1st hr I stirred well and recovered. 15MINS later I stirred again and found the white chock turning brown around the edges, so I stopped, added the M&Ms, and scooped onto wax paper. Turned out fine but not white as photo. 2nd hour seemed unnecessary.

  5. My M&Ms melted into my white chocolate–looking a little tan rather than white! But (and of course, they haven't cooled yet) they taste great!

  6. How did you keep your M&M's from melting? When I stirred mine in, they melted a bit and turned my white chocolate a little "muddy." I had turned the crock pot off and pulled my insert out of the heating base.

  7. I made this! And as usual mine does not turn out like the beautiful picture on Facebook. I don't know if I cooked it too long but the brown sugar coating on the peanuts melted off so it is not white. It is super sweet. I doubt I'll make it again. I added crushed up pretzels to give it something other than sweet but it wasn't enough. One is all someone can handle eating.
