Oh yes, its gloriously possible!
Melted chocolate… in the crock-pot! Let’s do this!
If you’ve ever tried melting chocolate in a double broiler or even in the microwave, you’ve probably experienced a burning incident or ten
two. Seriously, it seems like if you even look away for a split second while melting and stirring, you can kiss your lush white or dark chocolate goodbye. So naturally, when I read this tip
on myrecipe.com, I about fell out of my chair! I couldn’t resist testing it out and seeing if I could indeed toss chocolate in my crock pot, walk away, and return 2 hours later to hot, melty amazingness.
Chocolate Peppermint Birds’ Nests
Whats in it?
8oz of dark chocolate melts [Merckens brand rocks!]
8oz of unsalted, dry roasted peanuts
a handful of raw, unsalted almonds
a handful of lightly salted pretzel rods
crushed candy cane
I ran out of PB filled pretzels making my white chocolate snack mix but by all means, hunt some down and add them to the mix too! I’ve already added them to my grocery list. Possibly for the next 5 lists. Just sayin.
Toss it in your crock pot!
Add everything but the candy cane into your slow cooker and turn the heat to low. Pop in a movie, fix yourself dinner or go for a run, and in an hour or so you’ll have a melty crockpot full of candy. Stir to incorporate and add spoonfuls onto parchment paper to cool + harden. Sprinkle crushed candy cane on top and leave them out for santa with a glass of milk or gift them to your friends!
Have you heard of this trick before? If so… why didn’t you tell me!!?
