    I just love recipes that are sooo easy, yummy and look like you spend hours or even days making them, when in fact..they are the simplest and quickest thing in the world...this is one of those..

    In your crock pot (yes, your crock pot) layer the follwing in order:

    1- 16 oz. can of salted peanuts
    1- 16 oz. can of unsalted peanuts
    16 oz. of chocolate chips-either semi-sweet or milk (I used milk)
    1- 4 oz. box of German Bakers Brand Chocolate (the green wrapper)- (broken up)
    2 packages of vanilla almond bark- broken up.

    Cook on LOW for 3 hours. DO NOT LIFT LID WHILE COOKING. When melted, Lift lid, stir well, drop by spoonful onto wax paper. Let set, hide from family :wink:

    These are really good!! Enjoy!

    Sandpat - do you think you could use cashews in place of the peanuts?

    Beachlady, Yes, I think you could substitute any nuts. I couldn't find any unsalted, so I used 2 cans of salted nuts...I was amazed at how easy and how good. They are better than store bought.

    Sorry auntluc..but I love to share chocolate..Merry Christmas! :wink:

    Ok, I'm printing that out so I can make them when I get to HI. I need to find out if oldest has a crockpot. I'm pretty sure she does, but if she doesn't, guess what else I'm getting her for Christmas? lol

    I'm still lurking around in this chocolate peanut cluster thread. I'm trying really hard to resist making them...just checking the ingredients in case I can't resist any longer.

    auntluc...go ahead and make them...I waited from last year to this year.. this year's bonus...I've made lots of friends by giving lots of them away. I'm pretty good about only eating 1 or 2 each day. Now..my DH...not so much :? :roll: :wink:

    sandpat...what size are those packages of vanilla almond bark. All I can find are 1.5 lb packages...that's almost 3 lbs. of vanilla almond bark, is that right? They sound so good but OMG I have to go for blood work soon and my blood sugar would be sky high. If I could only eat just one and give the rest away I'd be tempted to make them.

    I know you all are questioning the almond bark amount, but yes...that is right...2 entire packages..almost 3 lbs. sounds like a lot, but somehow it works!

    auntluc...go ahead...your neighbors will love you..or your church group...or your kids...or all of them!

    Sandpat - can you get the vanilla almond bark in the grocery store? - Haven't looked yet, but am going out this morning.

    Sandpat...you're killing me with this recipe. Oh how I love chocolate!
    There are 80 calories in 1 tablespoon of vanilla almond bark...I can't even figure out how many calories 3 lbs. would have.
    There should be a law against posting such a tempting recipe...you're under arrest. lol.

    PS...Walmart has the plymouth pantry brand of almond bark.

    Thank you - no super walmart near me, but I am sure the grocery store will have it. Glad to "see" what I should be looking for. Think I am going to do one peanut and one cashew. I am assuming it would be best to make it the day before the party???????
