How to Store Keto Crockpot Candy

Can the Peanuts Be Substituted?

In fact, you can use pretty much any nut butter you fancy to suit your unique dietary requirements or taste preferences.
Tips for Making Crockpot Peanut Clusters
- Be sure not to forget that the Crockpot chocolate peanut clusters are cooking! If you overcook the candy, the chocolate will become hard.
- If you do find your chocolate is slightly overcooked, you can add a spoonful of coconut oil and it will help to soften and blend beautifully.
- Do a taste test before adding salt. Depending on the brand and type of peanut butter or peanuts you use, it might already have the perfect amount of salt. Do a quick taste test before adding extra sea salt.
