You can use this simple recipe to make a big batch of chocolate candy without a lot of fuss. I've sent these clusters to my husband's office a number of times…and passed the recipe along as well. —Doris Reynolds, Munds Park, Arizona


  • 2 pounds white candy coating, broken into small pieces
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) dry roasted peanuts


  1. In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the candy coating, chocolate chips and German chocolate. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 1 hour longer or until melted, stirring every 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in peanuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until set. Store at room temperature.
