Slow Cooker Christmas Candy
Looking for another favorite Christmas treat to try? Don't miss this Christmas Crack (aka Saltine Toffee Candy)
You all know when I saw the words “slow cooker” and “chocolate” all together in the same recipe, there was no way I couldn't try it out. 😉 This is the easiest recipe I think I've ever made, and it makes a ton . . . perfect if you need something simple to make this weekend to share, and a great way to free up your oven!
You can get some ideas for how to gift this candy in the video above – as you can tell, I'm a wee bit excited about all the fun packaging supplies I scored yesterday at Hobby Lobby!
While I've found quite a few cute tins, bags, and wraps at Michael's and the Dollar Tree for Christmas baking, the fun ways to gift at Hobby Lobby just made me so happy.

Slow Cooker Candy Recipe
I found this recipe online, but changed the original a bit by topping it with sea salt at the end and using a little less white chocolate, and I'm betting you could make other changes as well. Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it out too!
