Ingredients

  • 2 pounds dry-roasted peanuts
  • 2 pounds almond bark* I used chocolate; however vanilla will also work.
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4- ounce German chocolate bar*
  • Mini paper baking cups
  • Sprinkles optional garnish

Instructions

  • Put all of the ingredients in a crock pot. (Except for the sprinkles.) Cover and set the temperature to warm. Let sit for 1 hour; then stir the mixture. Continue to heat for another hour, stirring every 15-20 minutes for an additional hour or until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Once everything is melted, portion out the candy into mini paper baking cups. (I found it helpful to place the cups in a mini muffin pan before filling them with the candy to help them keep their shape. This isn't required, just helpful.) Top with sprinkles and allow to cool until set.
  • Pack and store in an airtight container.

Notes

*I found these ingredients at my local Wal-mart in the baking section. I'd assume that most well-stocked grocery stores / Wal-mart (with grocery section) will carry them.
As far as I know, these ingredients can not be replaced with something else to yield the same results.
