Although, it takes minutes to prepare in the microwave or on the stovetop, using the slow cooker is a great way to allow the kids to make Raisin Peanut Clusters.

  1. Add the chocolate chips and shortening to the slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low for 1 hour. Just put it in and go about your business, you don’t have to do anything to it.
  3. Stir, if there are any lumps of chocolate, cover and let it heat another 15 minutes and test again. 
  4. Add raisins and peanuts, stir to combine.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the candy onto wax paper or parchment paper and allow it to cool completely.
