    You say to use 2 lbs. of almond bark. 2 lbs. is 32 oz and a package is 24 oz. so you are using 48 oz. in the recipe which is actually 3 lbs. I just thought I would clarify. I think the recipe is great and actually have it in the slow cooker right now.

    Hey y’all…I’m sorry, but the instructions got mixed up somehow. When in doubt, always follow the video instructions. You want to put your peanuts in first and then layer all your chocolate on top. Just watch how the chocolate is melting after 2 hours or so. Some slow cookers cook really HOT and your peanut clusters will be done by then. But for others it will take the full 3 hours.
    Sorry for the confusion!
    Happy Crockin’, Y’all!

    I made this tonight, threw the entire batch away. Followed the directions above saying peanuts go on top, but then read some of the comments and you say peanuts go in first! Which is it? So glad that I wasted my money on all the ingredients:( Recipe that is viewed needs to be correct, shouldn’t have to read comments for the “right” version. Hope this is the only time I am disappointed in a recipe, because I really like the website.

    I followed the directions and my peanuts burned after 2 1/2hrs!
    I sat and picked them out of boiling chocolate for the next half hour!
    So…I guess it was 3hrs! I placed them in mini paper liners and they were great!!

    Although I will never put the peanuts directly on the bottom again!

    I am confused based on the reviews and directions above and video. I have watched the video and it shows the peanuts going in first but then others are saying their peanuts were burnt. The directions say put chocolate in first but video shows peanuts in first. Can someone who has had success with this please let me know which is correct. Thanks.

    Made these last year everyone loved them. So I decided to double the recipe this year DO NOT DO IT!! Doubling the recipe does not allowing the peanuts to breath and they will be burnt before you even realise it. From now on I will take my time
    and make 2 different batches. By the way its an awesome recipe and so good when you dont mess it up lol

    I made these today and am very disappointed. I followed the directions and put on low for 3 hrs. My peanuts burnt and the chocolate didn’t even melt. Not sure what went wrong, but I am very very disappointed! I will never make these again.
    Has anyone else had this problem with peanuts burning? I layers peanuts on the bottom, layered chocolate and covered.
    Now I have nothing to give the neighbors for Christmas and I’m snowed in for the day!

    Start with the peanuts, Julie. Be sure to watch the video, too! Merry Crockin’!

  9. Julie S.

    So, you start the layering with the peanuts or the sweet german chocolate bar? Going to make these for the neighbors for Christmas. Look and sound amazing! Happy Holidays!

    Oh my. These are tremendous. Am making them again this year for family Christmas. Always a hit.

    One of my favorite crock pot recipes. Makes lots and plenty to give as gifts for Christmas, etc. They love it, and think it is homemade candy.
    I have made many times, and the differences in chocolate, just make different tastes. One to keep!

    Boy Linda! We will get that fixed. Here is how it should read:

    1 (16 oz) jar unsalted peanuts
    1 (16 oz) jar salted peanuts
    4 ounces German sweet chocolate
    1 (12 0z) pkg semi sweet chocolate chips
    2 lbs white almond bark (2 pkgs)

  14. Linda

    Your list of ingredients is different from the ingredients you used in the video.
    The list shows milk chocolate chips; you say semi-sweet.\
    The list shows (24 ounces of chocolate almond bark & 24 ounces of white(which is 3 pounds).
    You say 2 pounds of white and you don’t mention the chocolate.

    Does one work better than the other?
    Do you prefer the list of ingredients or the ingredients you mention on the video?

    Thanks, Ruth! She’s right that there’s only one size, but it’s only 4oz.

  16. Ruth

    Philip – there is only 1 size of a Baker’s German Chocolate Bar in stores. I don’t have one right now (thanks for reminding, just put on my shopping list) to tell you the weight on it, but I believe it is either 10 or 12 oz.

  17. Philip

    Sounds great, but I’m a simpleton, please indulge me. When it says “one bar of sweet chocolate,” is there a size in mind? !

    Make this every Christmas..everyone loves it

    Has anyone tried this with different nuts than peanuts? I wondered about making with Cashews and Pecans?

    This was so easy and delicious. My daughters all got together for xmas baking and we had this in the crockpot while we did cookies. They were shocked I was making this candy in crockpot. The grandkids spooned them out on wax paper and we surely enjoyed them.
