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.
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!
