Cookies- the redo

The night after the great blazing crockpot incident, my dear husband thought that the slow cooker cookies sounded to good to pass up, so he went out and fought the craziness of the baking section 3 days before Christmas. 4 stores and a headache later, he was home with the ingredients to make more Chocolate Peanut Clusters..... many, many, more. Each batch makes a ton, so we were able to make bunches for neighbor and friend gifts. this time I cute the cook time in half and it worked out great.
Big crockpot full of chocolate

Here is the recipe:

Slow Cooker Chocolate Peanut Clusters

•2 pounds (2 - 16 ounce jars) dry roasted peanuts, salted*
•48 ounces almond bark white chocolate
•4 ounces sweet German chocolate
•10 - 12 ounces dark chocolate**
Place all ingredients in crockpot. Cook on low for 3 hours***. Don't touch. Turn pot off and let sit for 20 minutes. Cover a large surface (about 3 square feet) with waxed or parchment paper. Stir mixture completely. Drop by teaspoons full (I used iced tea teaspoons) onto paper. Let harden and store in airtight containers.
