Slow Cooker Rocky Road Candy
Are you looking for a fun recipe that would be perfect to make as a holiday gift or just a fun snack that you can make with the kids?
This rocky road candy is just the recipe you need!
With only 5 ingredients and a slow cooker you can have a delicious candy in no time flat.
I love making this candy with my kids because there is no double boiler needed to melt the chocolate and the kids can easily measure out all the ingredients, stir the mixture, spoon the chocolate on the parchment paper and sprinkle on the chopped peanuts and marshmallows on top.
The kids love eating these candies just as much as they do making them but I try to keep them from eating them all so we can package them up cute to give to their teachers at school for Christmas gifts!
Of course, it doesn’t need to be the holidays to make this fun and easy slow cooker candy recipe either. You can make these any time you are craving something sweet and chocolaty!
