Melt in Your Mouth Crockpot Peanut Clusters


  • 16 oz jar of unsalted peanuts
  • 16 oz jar of salted peanuts
  • 12 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 oz bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 2 – 12 oz bags of peanut butter chips
  • 2 – 1 lb packages of white almond bark broken into pieces
  • Layer ingredients, in the order listed, into a 4 qt or larger crockpot / slow cooker
  • Turn the pot on low, cover it with a lid, and walk away for two hours
  • After two hours, remove the lid, and stir to combine
  • Replace the lid and walk away for another 30 minutes
  • After 30 minutes check to see if the almond bark is melted, if it is – stir one last time and then spoon dollops of the mixture onto wax paper
  • If the almond bark isn't melted, continue to let sit on warm and stir occasionally until melted
  • Decorate the candies if you wish, while the chocolate is still warm after you spoon dollops onto the wax paper
  • Allow to harden at least 1 hour before packaging
    This is such an easy recipe! I got the recipe years ago from pleasanthome
    And we make it every year! Soooo yummy and easy.

Crockpot Chicken Crack sandwich


  • 3 lbs boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 (8 oz) blocks cream cheese
  • 2 (1 oz) packets dry Ranch seasoning
  • 8 oz bacon, cooked crisply and crumbled
  • Green onions chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded) I do use more.
  • Directions
    1. In a slow cooker combine place chicken, cream cheese, and Ranch seasoning.
    2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours, until chicken shreds easily.
    3. Once chicken shreds stir with a large fork or spoon, so the chicken shreds and all the ingredients combine.
    4. Add in crumbled bacon and stir to incorporate.
    5. Add cheese to top put lid back on and heat until cheese melts.
    6. Add green onions before serving 
    7. Serve warm on rolls or over rice. This also makes the best dip.


    Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days but it won’t last that long!
