12 Treats of Christmas - Day 5 - Crockpot Peanut Clusters

Candy doesn't get any easier - or tastier - than this!

Crock-Pot Peanut Clusters

One 12-oz. bag (2 cups) white chocolate chips
One 12-oz. bag (2 cups) milk chocolate chips
One 12-oz. bag (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
One 16-oz. jar (3 cups) salted dry roasted peanuts (the salt really adds to this recipe)

Combine all ingredients in Crock-Pot set on LOW.  Stir frequently until all chips melt and peanuts are evenly coated.  While you don't have to stir constantly, do stir the mixture often so that it doesn't burn around the edges of the Crock-Pot.  If your slow cooker has a KEEP WARM setting, use that after the chips have all melted and while you are spooning the candy out.

Spoon candy into miniature muffin tins lined with decorative mini muffin papers.  Alternately, drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or parchment paper.  Store in a cool place (or the fridge) until candy is firm.

Makes about 50 peanut clusters.
