Steps To Make Crock Pot Salty Sweet Candy:
Step 1: Start by placing your chocolate candy coating, baking bar, and chips, in the slow cooker. Cover it. Allow them to gently melt on LOW for 1 to 1.5 hours.
Step 2: Once the chocolate has melted, stir it. The scent is delightful!
Step 3: Now it’s time to mix in those peanuts and broken pretzel pieces. Stir them until they are all nicely coated with the chocolate.
Step 4: Using a cookie scoop or spoon drop spoonfuls of the candy onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. If you’re feeling festive you can sprinkle some sprinkles on top while the chocolate is still soft.
Step 5: Allow the candies to sit for an hour or until they firm up. I assure you the wait will be worth it!
When working with chocolate in a cooker timing is crucial. White chocolate is more sensitive to heat than milk chocolate. To prevent scorching or uneven melting make sure to check and stir the chocolate mixture every 15 to 20 minutes. This will ensure that the chocolate melts evenly and achieves a smooth consistency. Remember, being patient and gently heating it are key here. By managing the melting process you’ll achieve that creamy texture that will surely impress everyone, with this Crock Pot Salty Sweet Candy!
