Yummy nut clusters!

The other day I saw on Pinterest how to make your own double chocolate nut clusters in a crock pot! The whole crock pot idea had me sold! We already had several of the ingredients, so I opted to go to the store for the few that we didn't have and then got to work!

Fortunately the 'work' part wasn't too difficult! It only took a few minutes to gather everything together, throw it into the crock pot, turn it on, and then walk away. Yay!

The unfortunate part was that I didn't follow my own intuitive instincts and a small amount burned, which I discarded, and saved the rest of the batch by doing so! My advice, stir after you turn down the heat, and then again, about midway through. If the chocolate is all melty, it is done, believe me!

These turned out fabulous! They aren't that pretty, since I'm inexperienced at making these, but they sure do taste great! They are good enough to give away to neighbors and friends, which we will be doing, along with our peppermint bark popcorn!

Oh, and as a bonus for 'listening' to me, I'm giving you the recipe. Not as much fun as the blogs where they actually let you enter a contest, right? Oh well, if I had a LOT more people looking at my blog I'd do that, but I don't, so I won't. :)
