Crockpot Candy Cup Bites



2 pounds chocolate , broken into small pieces (you can use  chocolate chips as well) if your in a hurry you can obviously use a microwave to melt the chocolate, I make these while wrapping presents, crockpot is perfect for me!~

1 1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
4 cups Cap'n Crunch cereal
4 cups crisped rice cereal
4 cups miniature marshmallows
Nuts Optional

Place candy in crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Add peanut butter. Stir in extract.

In a large bowl, combine the cereals and marshmallows. Stir in the peanut butter mixture and nuts until well coated.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto lined mini muffin candy cups. Let stand until set. Store at room temperature.

I can make these in a crock pot? Hallelujah! That will give me some extra time for all the other things. Thanks, Claudia!

This is so awesome! Only recently have I discovered that you can do so much more with a crock pot than make meat balls. Have a happy and safe Christmas and New Year!
