Crockpot Christmas Desserts

Chocolate Peanut Clusters
Taste of Home has a really simple recipe for chocolate peanut clusters. You will need:

* 2 pounds of white candy coating (broken into small pieces)
* 2 cups (12 ounces) of semisweet chocolate chips
* 4 ounces of German sweet chocolate (chopped)
* 1 jar (24 ounces of dry roasted peanuts

Use a 3-quart crockpot. Combine the candy coating, chocolate chips, and German chocolate into it. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Next, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 1 more hour. Stir it every 15 minutes or so. After that, add in peanuts. Drop teaspoons of the mixture onto waxed paper and let them set.

Snowman Poop
Crockpot Ladies have a recipe for this funny named dessert. You may also have heard it called “puppy chow”. Fear not, it really is designed for humans to consume and enjoy. You will need:

* 1 box Funfetti Cake Mix (dry)
* 6 bars of Almond Bark
* 6 Cups of Honey Nut Cheerios

Use a 6-quart crockpot. Add the almond bark. Cook on high and melt it. This should take about 1 hour (possibly less). Make sure to stir it. Add in the 6 cups of Cheerios. Stir it well so it gets completely coated. Slowly add in the dry cake mix (and keep stirring). When done, remove it and let it cool on a sheet of waxed paper.

Raisin Cinnamon Bread Pudding
Campbell’s Kitchen has a lovely recipe for Raisin Cinnamon Bread Pudding that comes from your crockpot. You will need:

* Vegetable cooking spray
* 10 slices of Raisin Cinnamon Swirl Bread (cut into cubes) They recommend the Pepperidge Farm brand.
* 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
* 1 cup water
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 4 eggs (beaten)
* Ice cream

Use a 4 1/2 to 5-quart crockpot. Spray the inside with the vegetable cooking spray. Put the bread cubes into it. In a bowl, beat the milk, vanilla, and eggs. Pour that mixture over the bread cubes. Stir and press the bread cubes into the milk mixture (to coat them). Cover it, and cook on low for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Serve it with some ice cream!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
