Charming Chocolate Nut Clusters Make The Perfect Party Pick-Me-Up Snack

One of the things I love to do most is bake for my friends and family.  Not just during the holiday season, but any time of year! This past spring, I decided to make turtles for everyone.  I thought it would be complicated and messy but I found a way to do it that is so easy and takes minimal work. Yep, you guessed it, I used my Crock pot for this! It made it a hassle free occasion and allowed me to enjoy more of my day as this prepped away!

Check out what our friends over at POP Sugar Food had to say about this:

“My aunt has tinkered with the recipe through the years and has always envisioned making it with higher quality chocolate. She told me, “You can upscale it, and it can be ours!” So that’s exactly what I did.”

I love this girl’s aunt for creating this recipe.  It is simple, and yet thoroughly delicious! You’ll see what I mean when you give it a try!



1 (12-ounce) package shelled pecans, toasted (3 1/2 cups)

1 (12-ounce package shelled walnuts, toasted (3 1/2 cups)

1 (12-ounce) jar roasted, salted peanuts (3 1/2 cups)

1 (12-ounce) package milk chocolate, like Guittard Milk Chocolate 38%

1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate, like Guittard Semisweet Chocolate 66%

1/4 cup (2 ounces) bittersweet chocolate, like Guittard Bittersweet Chocolate 74%


Layer ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low for 1 hour, or until chocolate melts. Do not open lid. Watch time carefully — do not overcook (or else chocolate will burn and stick). After 1 hour, stir mixture.

Cook 2 minutes and then stir again.

Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Let harden completely before transferring to an airtight container.





Quick Tip: You can easily double this recipe by just increasing the cook time to two hours.

Thanks again to POP Sugar Food for this amazing recipe.
