Easter Crockpot Candy

Sharing is caring!

I see why they call Easter Crockpot Candy crack. This candy is elevated peanut clusters. White chocolate, peanuts, M&Ms, marshmallows and sprinkles. Once you start, it takes power to stop!

My daughter could not stop eating these. There has to be something in candy, the chocolate, sugar, I don’t know that makes this sort of stuff addicting. She just couldn’t get enough. Crazy.

So, I was out looking for some crockpot candy ideas and came across so many different variations. This is mine, and, hopefully, it’s not the same as anyone else. I like being unique, not following the masses.

How do you make Easter crockpot candy

You would make this crockpot candy the same as most “crockpot candy”, just change up colors/additions for the occasion. In this case, I added pastels. Now, you need to be careful with the milk chocolate M&Ms, they could change the color of the white chocolate. There are so many variations here. You could use white chocolate, almond bark or even candy melts. Then add in whatever else you want. If you don’t want peanuts, leave them out. Don’t like marshmallows? Leave them out. You get the picture.

Ingredients used for Easter crockpot candy.

What’s the difference between white almond bark and candy melts and chocolate

  • Almond Bark – Great for melting, which we know sometimes chocolate can be tricky. However, the bark does NOT contain any chocolate whatsoever. It’s made of vegetable fats, but does have flavoring such as vanilla.
  • Candy Melts – Very similar to almond bark. Great for “dipping”. It doesn’t harden as fast as chocolate, which will give you more time to “cover” whatever you are coating. That can be a two-edged sword. They will take longer to set.
  • Chocolate – Out of the three, chocolate is the best tasting, in my opinion. You’ll also find it a little more expensive. It takes longer to melt, and a little trickier, however, it sets faster.

Crockpot Candy Ideas


I thought I would finish this off with some ideas for you to make your crockpot candy with. Maybe you will follow this easy candy recipe no bake, or maybe you’ll be adventerous and make your own. By all means, this is not everything you could add to yours. Just trying to get your brain working.

  • Nuts (any kind you like)
  • Pretzels
  • Reese’s pieces or M&Ms
  • Chopped up candy bars
  • Marshmallows (flavored or unflavored)
  • Caramel / Butterscotch / Toffee
  • Sprinkles
