Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Treats
If peanut butter blossoms or no-bake cookies are your go-to cookie recipes, have we got the slow cooker candy for you! With the help of your trusty countertop appliance, these crispy treats don't require precise attention waiting for marshmallows, peanut butter, and butter to melt.

Need something deliciously festive for your next holiday gathering? Try glamming up crispy cereal treats with a couple of easy add-ins: green pistachios and bright red cranberries. Of course, you can always leave the mix-ins out and make classic cereal bars instead. Use a large cookie scoop or lightly grease your hands with butter or cooking spray to make the slow cooker candy without it sticking to you.
