4cupslightly salted dry roasted peanuts
2lbsvanilla almond barkbroken into pieces
1 12ozbag semisweet chocolate chips
1 4ozdark chocolate barbroken into pieces (I like to use Ghirardelli 60%)
4-5cupsmini marshmallowsthis is about 1 cup shy of a 10 oz bag of mini marshmallows
Layer peanuts evenly into your crockpot. Add almond bark, chocolate chips, and dark chocolate bar on top.
Cover with lid and cook on low heat for one hour.
Remove lid and stir well. If all of the chocolate isn't completely melted, continue to cook uncovered on low heat, stirring occasionally, for another 15-30 minutes (or as long as is needed until chocolate is melted).
Turn off heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Add mini marshmallows and stir briefly, just until marshmallows are coated in chocolate and combined (if you stir too much you will melt your marshmallows, you want them to pretty much maintain their shape).
Immediately use a 1 1/2 Tablespoon sized cookie scoop (or two large spoonand scoop candy by heaping 1 1/2 Tablespoon onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet (you'll need several, this makes a lot of candy).
Top with sprinkles, if desired, then allow candy to set before enjoying (about 30-60 minutes).
Store candy in an airtight container at room temperature.
