The EASIEST Crockpot Chocolate Candy Recipe
Hands down, this is probably one of my all-time favorite Christmas candy recipes, with my Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies and my Salted Caramel Fudge Cups coming in a close second.
This Crockpot Chocolate Candy is completely decadent and delicious and 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!
The Easy Steps to Making this Crockpot Candy
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!
Next Step: Top the Crock Pot Chocolate with Almonds
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 the delicious recipe for my super-easy Crock Pot Chocolate Almond Candy:
- 1 (16 oz) pkg.) vanilla candy coating (like Candiquik)
- 1 (16 oz. pkg.) chocolate candy coating (like Candiquik)
- 1 (11 oz. pkg) lightly salted almonds, divided
- 1 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Set your Crock-pot or slow cooker on low. Add the vanilla and chocolate candy coating, chocolate chips and 1 1/2 c. almonds. Reserve the remaining almonds for topping.
- Let the ingredients melt together in the crock pot for 60-90 minutes. Stir occasionally.
- Prepare a mini-muffin pan with mini-muffin paper liners. Once the chocolate is completely melted and incorporated, begin spooning the chocolate into the liners, fill to nearly full. Top each chocolate with an almond.
- Let the chocolates cool to set, room temperature for about 45-60 minutes. To speed up the cooling process, place chocolates in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve. Chocolates freeze well in a freezer bag or freezer safe container.
