This year I'm cutting way back with how much I'm baking since we are getting ready to move. One of my favorite chocolate candies to make are Triple Chocolate Nut Clusters. They are super easy, you make them in a slow cooker, it makes a lot and they also make excellent gifts to put in mugs, jars or bags to give out. Try them and let me know what you think!
Triple Chocolate Nut Clusters
1-16oz jar dry roasted peanuts
1-9.75oz can salted whole cashews
2 cups pecan pieces
36oz chocolate bark, squares cut in half
1-12oz package semisweet chocolate chips
4oz bittersweet chocolate
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine first 7 ingredients in a 5-quart slow cooker, cover and cook on low 2 hours or until chocolate is melted. Stir, add vanilla, stirring well to coat.
Drop by heaping T onto wax paper. Let stand at least 2 hours or until firm. Store in an air tight container. (Or freeze in zip-lock bags like I do.
