Slow Cooker Peppermint Candy is super easy to make and perfect for the holidays! You only need three ingredients to make this dessert recipe which makes this recipe right up my alley, especially during the holidays.
All you need to get started is (1) 24 ounce White Chocolate Bark, 6 candy canes, crushed and 4 drops almond extract. That is it! To prepare simply place the chocolate bark in a lightly greased 4 QT slow cooker (or you can use a crockpot liner). Melt the chocolate bark on low for 1 hour or until melted. Turn off the slow cooker and stir in crushed candy canes. Scoop into small muffin liners. Chill until hardened.
What I like about this method versus the stove top is that you don’t have to worry about burning or scorching your chocolate. It is fail proof! Plus no dipping! Just scoop out and make your candy shape by the shape of the muffin cups! I personally love the colorful mini size. You can often pick these up after the season for pennies to use the next year!
I often times feel so rushed with the boys school parties, friend parties and family get togethers during the holiday season. But this is an easy slow cooker dessert recipe that I can double or even triple to make enough for all of them. Be sure to try Slow Cooker Peppermint Candy, you will not be disappointed especially if you love peppermint! It is one of my personal favorite candies for the holiday season.
Trust me once you give it a try everyone will be asking you to make it. What they won’t realize is that it is so easy and they will think you spent hours in the kitchen. It is also perfect for gift giving! Just package into cute containers.
