You'll Love Crockpot Peanut Clusters
These are so good that I find it very difficult to eat just one! I think it's the combination of chocolate, butterscotch, and peanut butter with the salty crunch of the nuts. Take one and freeze the rest if you need to 🙂 -Kori
Peanut clusters are one of my favorite candies to make during the holidays. They are a part of my Christmas cookie collection. This year I decided to try a sugar-free version out and they turned out perfect!
I promise these taste great! I taste-tested them on my boys and none of them noticed that these are sugar-free. They are great at figuring out what's healthy food and what's not. If it falls under the radar then I know it's a success. LOL!
I think you will enjoy these candies.
Easy To Make
For years I made these on the stovetop but realized it would be super easy to make in a slow cooker. As far as candy go, these peanut clusters are super easy to make.
You simply add to the crockpot, melt the baking chips and peanut butter then add the nuts. Once it's all melted drop onto a baking sheet and refrigerate.
Voila! Delicious chocolate peanut clusters made in the crockpot.
Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free, and Sugar Free Candy
One of the hardest things about following a low carb keto diet is when you get a sugar craving or just want a nice little dessert.
These are great because they will absolutely satisfy your sweet tooth - and you don't have to feel guilty. Just don't eat too many!

Here are some different ways you can make substitutions or customize your candies:
- Feel free to use regular baking chips if you are not following a sugar-free, low carb, or keto diet.
- Substitute regular roasted salted peanuts instead of the Spanish red skin kind.
- Try different salted nuts like macadamia, etc.
- Play with different flavors of baking chips. Mint chips sound delicious mixed with the chocolate.
- Add a few dried berries.
Ingredients and Tools
- 7 oz butterscotch baking chips (sugar-free)
- 9 oz milk chocolate baking chips (sugar-free)
- 3 tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups Spanish redskin peanuts
Spray a small crockpot with nonstick spray and turn on low.
Add chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter to crockpot (see image 1 below).
Cover with lid and let heat up for 10 minutes. (Give it a stir periodically as once a few start to melt, the rest will melt quickly.)
When all ingredients are melted add peanuts and stir (see image 2 below). Note: Melting takes about 20 to 30 minutes once the crockpot is warm.
Drop by the spoonful (approximately 1 tablespoon each) onto parchment paper then refrigerate (see image 3 and 4 below).
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Helpful tips that will make this recipe turn out perfect!
- For faster melting preheat the crockpot. Melting takes about 20 to 30 minutes (or less) once the crockpot is warm.
- To prevent sticking spray nonstick spray or rub butter, or other oil before adding chocolate.
- Periodically stir the mixture. Once a few chips melt, it doesn't take long for the rest to follow.
Here are the most common questions we get for making this Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Cluster Recipe:
How do I store peanut clusters?
Store the peanut clusters in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
How long will peanut clusters keep?
If stored in an airtight container these will keep for several weeks - but they won't last then long because they're so good! 🙂
Can I freeze these?
Definitely. Peanut clusters can be frozen. Layer the clusters in an airtight container, using parchment paper to separate each layer.
The candy can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Can I use my crockpot to melt chocolate?
Yes! Using a crockpot to melt chocolate is an easy way to do it. Make sure to spray your crock with nonstick spray or rub butter on the inside pot to prevent sticking.
Turn on low and place your chocolate in the crock. Stir periodically until melted. Use or remove once the chocolate is melted.
