I’m just going to come out and say it. You HAVE TO make my new Minty Grinch Crock Pot Candy this Christmas.

There are no two ways about this recipe you guys. This is my favourite new Christmas treat to whip up. Crock pot candy is definitely all the rage this year, I’ve seen it everywhere. Then last night – literally last night- it’s like the Grinch himself came down as a muse and whispered into my ear:

“Why not make Christmas green crock pot candy?”

Oh heck yah, Santa Baby, why not indeed.

I literally shot the video for this treat TODAY. That’s how excited I was with my new creation. I ran out first thing this morning to get green candy melts, white chocolate and candy canes.

Then I wondered if peanuts and mint went together flavour-wise and had a minor panic attack. Argh! What if this was the wrench in my brilliant plan?

It wasn’t.

Peanut and mint go together PERFECTLY in this crock pot candy. I should have known, there are tons of dishes that match the two flavours together but I like a good dose of self doubt every now and then. Keeps me in line, you know.

Then I had another moment and freaked out about them setting. No other crock pot candy recipes used candy melts – they all use almond bark. Omg! What if I wasted all those ingredients? Damn that seductive Grinch whispering sweet green nothings in my ear!

No need to panic, Magpie. These set up like a boss.

I am so thrilled that I was able to get this recipe to you guys in time for your Christmas baking! Heck, there is absolutely NO baking involved in my Minty Grinch Crock pot Candy! Set it in the crock pot on low, go get something else done ( or sit and have a glass of wine) and come back and finish them up.
