Bookmarked Recipes - Crockpot Peanut (Not Brittle) Candy
This weeks Bookmarked Recipe is from A Year Of CrockPotting who has a very cool website, I have been looking to make some of her stuff, I needed thank you gifts for spending the night at relatives so I started with Crockpot Peanut (Not Brittle) Candy. I made it the day before I left, it was very easy and most everyone liked it, the only person who did not like it does not like chocolate.
I tended to call it nut candy. I made some changes and found out that this works much better cooling on silicon or parchment paper than aluminum foil.
It stuck to the foil big time. As in I could not get any of it off.
Added 2 cups more nuts, we like our nuts. I used half almonds and half peanuts.
After pouring out the candy to cool I sprinkled some chocolate chips and when they had melted I spread them out.
For one of them I had also added some dried cranberries. It gave the candy just that little something extra.
I will most definitely be making this again. Every one wanted the recipe, at the end of the week I had it mesmerized from writing it out so many times.
