Wanna know the deets to making these yummy candies? Let’s get to it!
Step 1: Start by adding the ingredients to your slow cooker
As you can see in the photo above, there are just 4 ingredients to this delicious Christmas candy recipe. Simply add to your slow cooker, turn it on low, and let it do the work for you. (See the slow cooker that I use below in the “Tools I Use” section.)
Note: Be sure to reserve some peanuts for topping the candies. (See the recipe below for the exact amount.)
Step 2: Let it melt
I love this simple chocolate crock pot candy recipe because you can basically just dump the ingredients into the slow cooker and let it do the work for you. I will often do other things in the kitchen or around the house while its melting.
Step 3: Occasionally stir
As the chocolate and candy begins to melt, you’ll want to stir it occasionally. Total time in the Crock Pot is about 60-90 minutes. Once everything has melted completely you can turn off the slow cooker.
Step 4: Spoon into mini-muffin cups, and reserved peanuts on top and let cool
Once the candy has melted completely, you can then begin spooning the chocolate into a mini-muffin pan. For easy removal and serving, I suggest lining the mini-muffin pan with mini-muffin liners. Spoon the cups to nearly full levels. Top the candies with a few of the reserved salted peanuts.
Let the candy cool at room temperature for at least one hour. You can also freeze for 15 minutes to speed up the cooling/setting process.
The white chocolate, peanut butter and peanut flavors are amazing in this recipe! Sweet and salty, with the perfect crunch. This delicious Christmas Candy recipe is perfect for your next Christmas cookie/candy exchange. They’re also fantastic to bring in to your kids school for the teachers and staff to enjoy and great to gift to friends and neighbors.

Here’s the recipe for my delicious Peanut Butter White Chocolate Crock Pot Candy:
- 1 (16 oz. pkg.) vanilla candy coating (like CandiQuik)
- 1 (12 oz. bag) white chocolate chips
- 1 (16 oz. jar) lightly salted peanuts, divided
- 1 (10 oz. bag) peanut butter chips
- Set your Crock Pot or slow cooker on low. Add the vanilla candy coating, white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and 1 1/2 c. of the peanuts. Be sure to reserve the rest of the peanuts for topping the candy.
- 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, begin spooning the chocolate into the cups until nearly full. Top each chocolate with the reserved peanuts.
- Let the chocolates cool to set. Cool at room temperature for at least one hour. To speed up the cooling process, place the chocolates in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
- Store the chocolates in an airtight container until ready to serve. Chocolates freeze well in a freezer bag or freezer-safe container.
