  • 3.5 quart slow cooker or larger
  • measuring cup
  • Mixing Spoon
  • wax paper or parchment paper for counter
  • slow cooker liner or parchment paper (optional)


  • 2 12oz bags, white baking chips
  • 1 12 oz bag, melting candy wafers ( I used red for Valentine's Day in these pictures)
  • 16 oz salted peanuts
  • 16 oz candy coated chocolate pieces, divided such as M&M's


  • line crockpot with liner or parchment paper, if using
  • add peanuts, white chocolate chips and candy coating wafers to slow cooker
  • cook on high until full melted this should take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes or so to make sure the edges or bottom don't start to burn.
  • when fully melted, stir to mix and blend until all chocolate is one color. In the case of those pictures here, I mixed red wafers with white chips to make a pink candy.
  • add about 14 oz candy coated chocolate pieces (such as M&M's) to slow cooker and stir to combine, reserve remainder for decorating
  • drop tablespoons full of chocolate mixture onto sheets of non-stick paper, such as wax paper or parchment paper, to make free-form candy mounds
  • add sprinkles, reserved M&M's or other toppings to decorate (optional). Make sure that toppings are added before candy mounds cool and harden to ensure that toppings stick properly.
  • allow to cool and fully harden before moving (about and hour)
