My family loves to make and receive cookie plates. We have about 20 families we like to deliver treats to each holiday season. One recipe I can always count on is Crock Pot Candy. This year I went with a white candy instead of my regular milk chocolate. This is one of my family’s favorite Christmas candy recipes and it makes a HUGE batch!
I just took the chocolate recipe and replaced the milk chocolate with white chocolate. It works great! Now some like to use unsalted peanuts in this dessert, but I really like to use dry roasted peanuts they have a slightly salty coating to them for this candy. The pretzels aren’t too salty either and work perfectly. I am a huge fan of all things salty and sweet.
I would love to say this is a “dump it and forget it” kind of recipe but because we’re working with chocolate and candy it requires a bit more attention. That being said, you can put the ingredients in your slow cooker and leave them for an hour to do other things! I usually set a timer because I don’t want to forget the candy in the crock pot and ruin the whole batch. Then, I used a small cookie scoop to portion the candy onto parchment paper (a silicone mat works fine too). And because I can’t leave things alone around Christmas, I put sprinkles on to make them extra festive! This really is the easiest crock pot candy recipe!

Tools used to make this Crock Pot Salty Sweet Candy recipe
Slow Cooker: I love this crock pot! The lid is very secure and I can pack it up and take it on the go if I’m heading to a potluck. This slow cooker is a workhorse in my kitchen and has worked great for years!
Baking Sheet: A nice big baking sheet is a must have for any kitchen. This half pan sheet is large than a regular cookie and works great for anything you’re baking.
Silicone Mat: I use a silicone mat on my baking sheet practically everytime I bake. The mat makes for easy cleanup and my foods don’t stick to the pan.
Cookie Scoop: Cookie scoops are my favorite way to portion dough and batter when I’m baking. This set has 3 different sizes so I get the right amount in each scoop.
- 2 pounds white chocolate candy coating
- 6- ounce white chocolate baking bar
- 12 ounces white chocolate chips
- 3 cups dry roasted peanuts
- 2 ½ cups pretzel twists broken in small pieces
- Festive sprinkles if desired
- Place white chocolate candy coating, white chocolate baking bar, white chocolate chips in a crock pot that has been set on LOW.
- Heat candy for 1- 1-½ hours until melted. Uncover; stir the chocolate mixture.
- Stir in peanuts and broken pretzels until completely coated in the candy.
- Drop by spoonfuls (i like to use a small cookie scoop) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. If desired, top candy with sprinkles. Allow candy to set for at least one hour.
