Reviews for Chocolaty Peanut Clusters

"Crockpots vary as to temperature. Mine simmers on low, would not attempt this in it. The concept of the recipe seems totally workable. I will try melting the chips in a double boiler very low heat add peanuts after it is melted and blended completely. We make chocolate candies with chips and dip cookies every year with the double boiler method. A double boiler can be made by putting one pan over another as long as the water doesn't get into the top pan. I suspect someone made this with an old crockpot that has the old low settings. Chocolate is very touchy, a bit of food grade wax melted with it will keep your candy shiny and aid setting. With this I would use probably a tenth of a bar or less of wax tops. If you use wax shave it an melt it with the chips before adding the nuts."
"Didn't work for me; got the burnt results like others. Tried to salvage in the microwave but it just made it worse."
"Great recipe. Glad I didn't read the reviews until after I had everything going. I have a 4 & 6 quart slow cooker. I did it in the 6 qt. for 2 1/2 hours. It filled it up to within an inch of the top. Was very satisfied with the results and it made tons of clusters and so easy. Great recipe for my holiday treats that I give out to friends and family. Will definitely make again."
"People that are complaining about this burning most likely were using a slow cooker that was too large. You can't use a 6 qt sized cooker and ignore your ingredients. If you aren't filling it 2/3 full it's going to cook faster."
"Stirring is the key. I stirred about every 30 minutes. It turned out great!"
