Margie's Chocolate Nut Clusters

These are crockpot candies. I got the recipe from Margie (click on Margie's Musings on my sidebar)...a dear blogger friend of mine. She mentioned these a couple of years ago saying that they were so easy to make. Since peanut clusters are a favorite of Joe's, I decided to try them. He said that they are better than the ones you buy. They are so simple to's how I did it:
Melt 2 lbs. almond bark in slow cooker on low.
When melted add 12. oz. pkg of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 bar of baker's semi sweet chocolate
Add 1 jar of dry roasted peanuts
Let melt and blend the mixture well. 
I let this stay in the crockpot for a couple of hours and it was fine.
I let it cool a bit and then dropped the mixture on waxed paper using a teaspoon. I don't know why....but I had some chocolate with few nuts left over. I took some chopped walnuts and added them to the chocolate. These candies were just as good.

As you can see this recipe makes a lot. Both containers were filled to the top. They can be kept in the fridge if needed. I plan on using some of these for gifts this Christmas and someone who has a birthday in Nov. will get some as well. I like to put them in cellophane bags with a ribbon.

We were to have some icy roads this morning, but now the ice has melted and we just have wet streets. Poor Buffalo, NY. I can't imagine that much snow. I look at the pictures on the news and wonder how we would cope with something like that. I hope to never find out.

Well, this is it...the last weekend before Thanksgiving. Even though I don't have to prepare the bird...I still have a lot to do. 

Have a nice weekend everyone...Balisha
