Feature: Day 11 - Crock Pot Candy: Easy No-Bake Recipe to Make at the Last Minute

Not really a cookie, but it’s cut like one! Crock Pot Candy is mixed together in (you guessed it!) your crock pot.  

You leave it and forget it for about an hour. Then come back, stir it, let it cook for a few minutes more, pour it, let it set … and voila, you have an a-m-a-z-i-n-g confection. It’s a super easy recipe (your 6-year-old can make it) and yields a LOT.

That’s one reason it’s a good one to use to make gifts for teachers, neighbors, family members or to take to a party as a dish to pass. Because if you make it and keep it, you’ll probably eat it all yourself.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Bake time: 70 minutes
Makes about 60-120 pieces
