MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2014

"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."

MY REVIEW

"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!"

MY REVIEW

"This was a $40 loss. Chocolate wouldn't melt, peanuts burnt on bottom. Chocolate burnt around edge of slow cooker. Threw it all out. Followed recipe exactly. What a mess.

MY REVIEW

"Some slow cookers tend to cook warmer than others. Just keep an eye on yours as it is melting the chips and they should turn out great."
