Recipe: Crockpot Candy
With the holidays fast approaching, this recipe will come in handy over and over again. These candies are deliciously simple to put together and a favorite of all ages. I love to set them out at a party or package them up as a sweet gift for friends or neighbors. Put everything in your slow cooker and let it melt on low heat for a few hours, then stir it all together and scoop into cupcake or candy liners. It’s that easy!
