Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Clusters

Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Clusters A Year of Slow Cooking

Tomorrow is National Peanut Cluster Day. Yes, there’s a food holiday for everything! But don’t scoff  … these holidays can be great justification for indulging in a particular treat that’s been calling your name. Or remembering a special treat that will perk everyone in the house up a bit! I’ve always loved Chocolate-Covered Peanut Clusters. I’m being a redundant here as I don’t know of any peanut clusters that are not chocolate covered (thinks like peanut brittle don’t count), but the chocolate part is really important, right? Yeah, I thought so, too!

Did you know that these treats can be made in your slow cooker?  The beauty of making candy in your crockpot is that it’s almost foolproof. No candy thermometer is needed. Stephanie (A Year of Slow Cooking) describes her wonderful Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Clusters:  “The chocolate flavor is quite rich, and tastes dark. If you aren’t a fan of dark chocolate, use milk chocolate chips. The salt flavor from the nuts is subtle, but is there, and it makes your tongue itch for more. And more.”

    i am sooo addicted to this treat!

    • Hi Wendy–Welcome to All Gluten-Free Desserts! Many of us love the chocolate peanut clusters or simply chocolate-covered peanuts. So good, right? 😉 Enjoy!


  2. Okay…YUM. Question: why isn’t every day National Peanut Cluster Day?

  3. O. My. Goodness. These look yummy! I absolutely love my crock pot but have never made dessert in it before. I’ll have to try these along with some of Stephanies dinners cause I’ve been in a dinner rut and some of her crock pot recipes look perfect!


    • Cassidy–I’ve made a few desserts in my crockpot (e.g., almond butter hot fudge cake!) and they’ve all been really great, but I usually forget about using it for that purpose. Making candy in it sounds perfect for someone like me who is not a fan of the candy thermometer and the perfect timing required. 😉 And you’re right, Stephanie’s meals are a terrific way to get out of the dinner rut! :-)
