With just 4 ingredients and your slow cooker, this easy to make candy recipe is perfect for your Christmas cookie trays! Chocolate and almonds come together to make a delicious treat that is not only great during the holidays or any time you’re craving chocolate!
Hands down, this is probably one of my all-time favorite Christmas candies, with my Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies and my Salted Caramel Fudge Cups coming in a close second. Not only because it’s completely decadent and delicious, but because its so darn easy to make! With just four ingredients, all you need to do is add these to your crock pot or slow cooker, and let it do the work for you!
You’ll start with semi-sweet chocolate chips, vanilla candy coating, chocolate candy coating, and lightly salted almonds. Then you’ll set your slow cooker on low, and let it all melt together, giving it an occasional stir. About an hour later, you’ll have the most delicious, chocolate almond candy!
Once the chocolate is completely melted, you’ll begin spooning it into mini-cups. I used my mini-muffin tin, lined with mini-liners, which helps the candy take shape. Top the chocolates with an additional almond, and then let the chocolates cool. You can speed up the cooling process by placing the chocolates in the freezer for about 10 minutes, or simply let the chocolates cool at room temperature, which will take about 45 minutes to an hour.
Once your chocolates cool, you’ll have these pretty candies that are perfect for sharing and gifting during the holidays! They make a great addition to any Christmas cookie or candy tray, and are a wonderful treat to share with friends and neighbors, too!
Once you bite into these delicious chocolates, you’ll discover the almonds in the middle. Its the perfect balance of tender chocolate and crunchy nuts. The combination of the white and semi-sweet chocolates make for a really delicious chocolate flavor this is completely irresistible!
Here’s how these super-easy and super-delicious candy comes together:
I hope you are able to treat your friends, family and neighbors with these delicious candies during the season, or anytime you’re in the mood for an easy, delicious chocolate treat! Enjoy! ~Erin
