Easy Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Butter Clusters recipe:

I have always loved peanuts covered in chocolate. Then I discovered how easy it was to make this sweet treat and it didn’t take a lot of ingredients, I knew I had to make it. You basically just throw all your ingredients in the crockpot and it does all the work for you.

I am a huge fan of clusters. You definitely get more chocolate per bite instead of just the chocolate covered peanuts.

Does the holiday mean a lot of baking for you? We love baking for friends and family starting in December. There is just something about this Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Cluster recipe that gets me excited to start preparing for the holidays.

Slow Cooker Peanut Cluster Variations:

These are the perfect candy to customize to whatever holiday or get together you are having.

  • Change the chocolate – You can use dark chocolate, white chocolate, or butterscotch chips. You can even combine two chocolates.
  • Use different type of nuts – You can change the nuts or combine them to make a different type of clusters. We have used cocktail peanuts before and they turned out really good.
  • Add in different color M&Ms – Red & Green for Christmas, Pastels for Easter, or Red for Valentines day.
  • Drizzle with candy melts – After you are finished making the clusters, you can drizzle them with different colors of candy melts and sprinkle them candy sprinkles to make them festive for any holiday.

This just names a few of the options that you can do. The kids love when we do variations. We like trying different options each time we make them.

Crockpot dessert cooking:

I love use my crockpot for everything from breakfast meals to making dinner for my family. I have recently starting using it to make desserts. In fact, I bought one specifically so I can make all of my desserts in one.

It is so nice to have multiple crockpots so I can make multiple things without doing much work. I have done Dump Cakes, cookie cakes, and now starting making easy chocolate candies in them.

If you have been looking for a good crockpot that does just about anything, we have been loving this Aura Pro. You can bake, steam, use as an Instant Pot, and even sauté your food.

  • Salted Dry Roasted Peanuts

How to make Crockpot Peanut Clusters:

  • Spray nonstick spray to spray the crockpot.
  • Place the almond bark in the crock pot. Make sure you use enough almond bark to ensure the the clusters hardened.
  • Top with the chocolate chips and the peanuts. Cover and cook on low for 1 ½ hours, stirring occasionally.
  • It is important to stir every 15-20 minutes to ensure that the melting chocolate does not burn on the bottom of the crock pot.
  • Once all ingredients are melted, stir thoroughly to combine.
  • Temper the chocolate – The chocolate we are adding is already tempered, meaning it is undergone a processes that increases the shine. But when it cooks it loses the tempered. Un-tempered chocolate causes white streaks and the chocolate doesn’t set up. You can add German chocolate bar after the chocolate is melting and keep stirring until melted.
  • Use a spoon or a cookie scoop to scoop clusters onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper. You can even line a cookie sheet with cupcake liners for easily distribution of peanut clusters.
  • Put in the refrigerator or allow them to sit at room temperature until the chocolate has completely set (usually 1-2 hours).
  • Sprinkle with sea salt – We like to sprinkle with sea salt. I try to sprinkle the sea salt when they are still warm. This allows the salt to stick to the chocolate.

  • Store the clusters in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!

How to store:

The peanut clusters should stored in a cool place. This candy stores exceptionally well in a airtight container. I usually separate the stacks by wax paper so they don’t stick together.

They don’t last long in my house with my large family, but they are the perfect treat when you are wanting something sweet. I don’t feel so bad eating a couple as they are the right amount of sweet and salty that I crave.

Can you freeze peanut clusters?

These chocolate peanut clusters freeze great. Just make sure they are solid before adding to a freezer bag. You can thaw in the refrigerator or I have even eaten frozen.

If you leave them out at room temperature condensation will form, so I just keep them in the refrigerator. Especially after they have been frozen.

We hope this Easy Crock Pot Chocolate Peanut Cluster will be at your next holiday party or event.
