Slow Cooker Candy Recipes

Crispy Holiday Treats

Cherry-Chocolate Clusters

A couple hours in a slow cooker transforms chocolate, dried cherries, and almonds into decadent molten candy mix. Firm up the candy in individual bake cups for gorgeous, easy-peasy presentation!

Peppermint Pretzel Candies

Meet your new signature holiday food gift. These crunchy mounds of white chocolate, pretzels, and crushed peppermints aren't just gorgeous and indulgent -- courtesy of your slow cooker, they're also ridiculously easy to prep!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Treats

How do we love crispy treats made in a slow cooker? Let us count the ways ... No. 1: No endless stirring at the stove top, waiting for marshmallows to melt. No. 2: The cooker acts as both saucepan and mixing bowl, which makes for less cleanup! And No. 3: You can easily use a slow cooker to switch up the taste -- just melt peanut butter alongside the marshmallows and butter to infuse the whole batch with flavor!

Salted Caramel Fudge

This gorgeous slow cooker fudge puts the "candy" in "eye candy" -- mostly due to its pretty swirls of dulce de leche. As a sweet bonus, it's also six-ingredient easy.
